Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I run a bed and breakfast out of my home in Anchorage, AK.
The name of my bed & breakfast is Desiderata Bed & Breakfast.
All bookings for my bed & breakfast are exclusively through Airbnb.
My primary target audience are college students in professional/doctoral programs looking for a long-term stay of 3-6 weeks during medical rotations.
My secondary target audience are 20-40 year old travelers who are interested in stays from 3-5 days.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
preference for blues, greens & reds, but open to other color schemes.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
simple design that is instantly engaging. Also like the limited colors
Look the simple design and I like the color green. I like the natural "earthy" feel.
I like th colors and the geometric elements of the design.
I like loops and swirls. I like the earthy elements of the design.
I like the way the company name is part of the logo
Simple design, limited colors. Clean and easy to interpret.
This is the last logo I ordered through 99designs . It is 100X better than what I ever imagined and the designer (Fresh-ART) came up with his initial logo with only limited information in my briefing and then put his creative talents to work. Very satisfied with the finished products
This is the logo I had designed for my personal blog website. It has symbols and elements there are reflecting of my values.
This is the flag for the state of Alaska.
I have attached the two logos for my other business to help give ideas. The businesses all overlap to some degree.
Color scheme is up to the designer, though I favor blues, greens, reds & aquas.
So far, the designs have been terrific, but as I look at them, I realize that the hammock I initially requested implies more of a campground/outdoor experience, and not the comforts of a home.
I do not want an overly complicated design.
I like the idea of incorporating any of the following elements into the logo: mountains, sun (Alaska is called "Land of the Midnight Sun" and the Big Dipper (which is in the Alaska state flag) (and a home & yard?) into my logo.
Since I do not want an overly complicated design, all elements listed may not be possible in a design and that is ok.
Designers can visit my website, http://www.shelidodson.com to learn about my Be & Breakfast and see if that helps with logo ideas.
Work must be original, please.
