I would like to see some designs that are not based on a lens.
The name Pura Lucida comes from two separate ideas.
Pura Vida means pure life and is the Costa Rica slogan,
Lucida is an Italian word that means,
the brightest star in a constellation.
One of my favorite photography nerd books was called Camera Lucida by Roland Barths.
I liked the way the name Pura Lucida Photography captured the photo nerd in me and my new love, (and soon to be home, in June) Costa Rica.
Since the name Pura Lucida Photography is nonsensical it is important to me that the font be clear and easy to read. I am not afraid of color and would love some sort of abstract-ish design that I could use as a watermark alone or along with text.
I am open! I love art and design, but am not good at design.
Words that I like (from the color examples) are:
Passion, fun, liveliness, nature, refreshment, balance, knowledge, tranquility, trust, wisdom, spirituality,earthiness, peace, luxury, classy, classic.
I like rich colors and a lot of contrast in my artwork and photography. I have attached a variety of my photographs to show my style, they are just small screen shots so might not be super crisp. I have also attached some logos that caught my eye.
Please, no palm trees, no feathers or arrows (nothing hipster looking). No neon.
I am open to different fonts and would like Pura Lucida Photography to be able to stand out on it's own with out the logo design.
I love modern and abstract art. I love rich water color, and geometric metal work.
