Although we had many great designs, my team when with the simple, yet elegant design submitted by hattori
How Csmolloy started their logo design journey
Stress Free Start
I am a Developmental Therapist in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). I have 18 years experience in the field of infant massage therapy and parent edcuation. I am currently the Director of the Tender Touch program (touch therapy education for parents on how to touch/interact with their premature baby)in the NICU at a large hospital in Kansas City, MO. My company, Stress Free Start, has been started to increase awareness about the many negative effects of stress on a developing infant's brain, nervous system and relationship with their family. I also educate about how touch/massage help promote relaxation, nurturing, bonding and attachment and therefore, can help to cement the family bond and help prevent abuse and neglect.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Medical personnel who are working in either the Newborn Nursery (well babies) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU; medically fragile/premature babies). I also will be looking to market to educators who work in the field of preventing abuse and neglect and in parent education.
I am seeking a logo design that is somewhat "childish" or "kidlike" in nature; perhaps a cartoon or simple line drawing. I don't want it to be serious looking but rather, somewhat whimsical so that it appeals to people who work in the baby business. It can reflect a really relaxed baby and can include 2 parents or be a baby on its own. I am attaching an example of a logo done for a friend of mine through 99designs that is similiar to what I am looking for.
It should be something "soft" that will reflect the company goal of promoting bonding/attachment, nurturing touch and stress reduction.
I am also very open to creativity; my company is somewhat esoteric by nature so I am also looking for some direction creatively.
