I am looking for a simple, creative, modern design that includes the name of the business (Solo Travel Tribe) while also symbolizing unity, community, socializing, or togetherness. This could be something such as an abstract symbol/design or the letters of Solo Travel Tribe somehow tied together without a symbol or design - anything that symbolizes a tribe or community. It could also just be the words "Solo Travel Tribe" without an additional design attached. I had considered including the tagline "solo but not alone" in the logo, although I wonder if that will be too much for a simple, modern logo. I am open to both options but am leaning toward just the Solo Travel Tribe or even just the acronym STT in the logo with something symbolizing togetherness. Again, this symbol of togetherness does not mean there has to be an additional picture next to the name "Solo Travel Tribe." It could just be the name of the business. Of course, I want something clever and creative that depicts a community, so am open to all possibilities that will depict this yet keep it simple at the same time!
I am still working on design of my website, but please see http://important-gerbil.cloudvent.net/ for the current layout and more information about Solo Travel Tribe. The domain will eventually be solotraveltribe.com when the blog is launched. On the website, the logo will be placed in the upper left of the header where 'STT' currently sits. I also need a larger version on the About page and the small version will be in the footer as well.
I may also want help with business cards after a logo is chosen.
Update: I do not want a design that is female-centric, as I would like to leave this open in the event I need to change my niche to be for men and women at a later date. This means that I am also open to other colors that are more gender neutral. Thanks!
Update: I would like to see some options that don't include an abstract symbol or picture next to "Solo Travel Tribe." If there is a way to depict togetherness, community, or unity with just the name of the business, I would like to see that as well. Or just a creative way of showing the name of the business. Thanks.
Update: I'm seeing now that my favorites all have the following options with the logo: 1) An abstract design or a modification of the 'STT' (STT being my favorites) by itself, 2) STT or abstract design with Solo Travel Tribe spelled out, 3) STT or abstract design, Solo Travel Tribe, and the tagline "solo but not alone." I will likely choose one that includes all three options so that I can use the small logo, the medium size with name of company, and the large with the tagline all for different purposes. I will want these options for business cards too. Thanks!
Update 9/13/16: To the finalists, if you haven't already, I need the following: 1) option with just the icon, 2) option with icon and company name - Solo Travel Tribe, 3) option with icon, company name, and the tagline - solo but not alone. Also, if you can play around with various color options, I would like to see that as well. If you aren't clear on which design I like the best of yours or have any questions, just ask! Also, always open to new design ideas so throw those in the mix if you've thought of something else! Thanks!
