I don't mind paying more then Bronze but I would like the see at least a draft or mock up. I too am an artist / creative and don't mind paying for solid work.
So we would like a logo that shows that we are different by not being the stuffy old portrait photographer but instead the smart, talented, well dressed (but not over the top) photo studio. I don't want the cool next thing that is to cool to talk to you, I want a bit of rebellion and more fun attitude.
I chose our name "Headshot Revolution" because it ROCKS. "Headshot" tells everyone that we do headshots and not portraits - really they are the same but headshots sound cooler!!! and "Revolution" is a play on words - revolution of the tires / steering wheels of the studio and also revolution in pushing the envelop and going after what no one else has - as far as I know there is only one other photo studio in the back of a step van in North America and for sure it is the first one in Canada!!!
So I have an idea but am open to your creative input. I was thinking on using the well known Revolution 5 point star as part of the logo. I would like to use the star in texting and on social media like this "Headshot ★ Revolution" So I was thinking that would be the basic horizontal logo - the text with the star in the middle. I have uploaded a a rough idea of what is on my head of this (test logos and revolution fists) Of course I look to you to make it wicked awesome.
Also would like "Established 2015" in there somewhere.
For the van I like off access stuff and was planning to use a tin barn star to give the van a bit of 3D look and vinyl text to the left and right of it.
I am not looking to wrap the van just yet. I will be going with just vinyl stickers so the design will need to make good use of the white that he van currently is.
UPDATE: 07 Aug 2015 - just wanted to let anyone putting in a design know that I am not liking the shutter graphics. The main focus is a cool looking star. A also for the majority of what I am seeing, I am capable of creating myself. I posted here to have someone take it over the top. the star and text is great but what about something more. The beer logos I have seen while browsing could be promising. I want to logo to show uniqueness not just a nice looking font and a star. Thank you so much.
UPDATE 10 Aug 2015 - so pumped!! Each of you have some great design point so I guess this part is the fine tuning part. I look to your creativity to see how each can be tweeked to make them stand out.
Regarding established as "EstD" - I am not likening the way it is turning out so if we can't make it look cool we can just go back to the standard "Est." As the short form.
Looking forward to see what the final tweeks will be. I will comment on each as they come in. Thank you all!!
