I want a striking logo; nothing too abstract. In addition to a website & literature, I intend to use this logo on my car's rear window, so I want something that people will instantly understand.
I like the idea of two hands cupping the scene of a woman giving birth. Something like the logo of Bumi Sehat <http://www.bumisehatbali.org> perhaps more contemporary. I also like the primitive or global art of women giving birth. The anthropoligst Sheila Kitzinger's book "Rediscovering Birth" has some great images <http://www.sheilakitzinger.com/BOOK…vering.htm>. I am comfortable with powerful birth images but I'm not sure whether most families employing a doula would be! If you are a parent &/or have witnessed or supported a birth, or just have children, what images are generated..? So, what portrayal would encourage you to contact me to care for your pregnant friend in her most dramatic, vulnerable, primal time of her life?
I need a 1-colour linear logo; nothing childlike, not sure whether to have mama-doula.com incorporated (or mama doula), probably beneath the logo image. Circular shaped designs are good, as are spirals. Common birthing visioning includes waves (for the contractions), opening flowers (to convey thoughts of the softening, contracting layers of a woman's cervix), the cycle of life. There needs to be space between any image of a doula, the woman & her baby. Njoy!
