To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Our website is at http://www.funcitonalvolatility.com/. We need a "brandable" logo that will be attached to our site and all its variants. We would use this logo (or a smaller consolidated version) for our Avator on Twitter, Facebook, Disqus, StockTwits, etc.
Our target audience with this blog is a "at-home" or "retail" investor/trader who has an above average interest in trading and market analysis. They are not teenagers or the "artsy" type, but are generally established college-graduates who want to take control of their own finances.
The attached logo was something done very quickly by an amateur in Photoshop when playing around with ideas. Do not use it as a guide, but simply as one of the ideas that we played with.
We need a logo developed that clearly states our Blog title "Functional Volatility" and can be consolidated to a smaller version that clearly identifies (via color, styling, letters, etc) this "brand" on an avator in the popular social media sites.
