To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
I have attached two pictures of logos that I really like. I love the coloring and the lines of the Oarsman's Ale logo, but I dont like how one side is dominated by the guy in the raincoat (it feels off balance). I love the classic charcoal feel of the Little Rock Skyline and would even love to incorporate part of the skyline in the logo itself. Of course, these are just suggestions, feel free to go hog wild with other concepts.
My company is making artisan cheese from local ingredients, so something about Arkansas would be great in the logo (an outline of the state perhaps, or just the skyline I mentoined earlier.)
