Candlelight Capital Management, Candlelight Consulting Services
The founders of Candlelight are a diverse (very diverse!) group of MBA graduates from sunny Los Angeles, CA. We are eager, talented and ready to take on the business world, developing ideas and taking on the financial world of investors. We understand that first impressions are everything and are looking for YOU to help our business hit the ground running with a great logo.
Candlelight has two distinct businesses, (1) CCM Candlelight Capital Management and (2) CCS Candlelight Consulting Services.
CCM creates reliable, high quality investment alternatives to meet the increasing demand of sophisticated investors for superior risk-adjusted investment returns.
CCS provides consulting services that enhance the entrepreneurial spirit of startups, allowing ideas to become realities. Specifically, we create tailored business solutions based on financial modeling, product market segmentation and feasibility studies.
Although there are diverse talents among our founders and we consulting start ups for a living, we have had a difficult time 'naming our baby' so to speak. We have a great business plan, but need an appealing logo that will reflect our credibility, financial superiority, appeal to women and business savvy personalities!
We're ready to make our debut with the perfect logo!
CCM (Candlelight Capital Management) offers investment alternatives to wealthy individuals, specifically baby boomer females (around 50 yrs of age). These women work, have six figure salaries, are almost done with financial commitments to their children and are planning for retirement. They are smart businesswomen who want to be heard.
CCS (Candlelight Capital Services) focusing on start up companies and appeals to businessmen and women of all ages. Individuals with great ideas, creativity and energy that need to develop a holistic business plan they can share with investors and banks. We help them to see the light at the end of the tunnel and turn their brilliant idea into a viable reality.
Both sets of customers have a professional edge, are passionate about who they are and are involved/ connected to the interactions they will have with Candlelight. They have unique needs that Candlelight meets with excellent service and understanding. Candlelight coaches, provide resources and enhance the wealth and income of those it touches.
CCM and CCS will need to be brands with similar looks, another way to put it, separate but connected. I leave the best way to brand the two segments of the company up to you as the companies will never be marketed directly together but always linked in someway on a small scale.
We have big ideas, but need YOU, the creative gods, to create a brand logo that Los Angeles will love.
My partners provided the following input (sorry to restrict any creative juices):
-cater to women with softer colors
-keep it simple
-professionalism is key
Thank you for your time, can't wait to review the fantastic submissions.
