Other descriptive words that I resonate with are sophisticated (but I love to have fun), luxurious (yet accessible), geometric (vortex, Fibonacci, flower of life, etc.), literal, and simple. My company is a start-up and I'd like to build my brand where the symbol of the logo is recognized without the text. Think "Apple".
There are logos that are similar in my industry that I do not like, such as the ones that have a silhouette of a human head with flowers, vines, etc. in the upper neck area (see revivepittsburgh.com), Please do not submit this style.
It would be rad to incorporate something associated with the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Trees, mountains, etc.
I'm open your creative designs, color suggestions different than my own, or a style different than my suggestions.
I want my logo to feel open, warm, comfortable, loving. I want people to see my logo and know that we are community oriented, we educate, we elevate, and we are here for them.
I like the styles of uppercervicalmarin.com (note abstract spinal cord with emphasis on top 2 bones) and thesourcechiropractic.com (love the creativity of connecting people to the source)
