One or two colors on a white background.
We would like the main graphical element to be of an object (rook chess piece) or building (castle or fortress) that evokes: ancient, renaissance, money, da Vinci. See attached files for examples.
We're undecided if the initials LR or company name should be integrated into the graphic element, or separately to the side. For now, we're interested/willing to see either approach.
Fonts: We like Georgia, Verdana, Bank Gothic. Fonts you would see on money or in or on old, stable banks.
About the attached files. These are examples of the kinds of design themes we're looking for.
citadel.png: Example logo for a large, famous hedge fund.
soldier-woodcut.jpg: We like this style of woodcut. About the right level of detail. Of course we don't want soldiers.
ship-woodcut.jpg: example style of graphic we'd love to see. It is of a ship though-- not what we want.
