I am very excited about where this could go, which is why I'm leaving it as open-ended as I can. Thank you very much for your interest and your hard work, and good luck!
I would like a lighthouse to be the primary feature of the logo, along with the business name and perhaps the tagline "Navigate Your Way to Optimal Health" (using it depends on the design, so feel free to go either way).
I would like the lighthouse to be modeled after the Pharos of Alexandria, not a modern lighthouse. It can be anywhere from somewhat detailed to highly stylized. The Pharos is easy to look up online; it's one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Also, I don't really want water to be a primary part of the logo. It can be there if it's part of your idea, but just not too eye-grabbing, please.
I'm very open to creative play; I just want something that's simple enough to identify quickly, and brings attention to the lighthouse as a guide or beacon. The lighthouse (or Pharos) is analogous to my clients' innate/unconscious knowledge of healing, and I'm just there to facilitate finding a greater connection to that aspect of themselves. So if you want to play with that idea, awesome... I really have no clue as to how to reflect that in a logo.
I would like my logo to be organic, warm, inviting, playful, curious, and 3-dimensional/have depth. Please avoid making the logo scream "vector art!" -- i.e. play with brush/ink strokes, textures (like paper or cloth), perspective, etc. I'd like to look more like handcrafted artwork.
That's all for now... thanks again!
