The over arching theme is that TRIBES are essential to all humanity. We have explored branding ideas relating to jungles, animals, tribal symbology, etc. One thing we have talked about was the notion of tribal masks and the role they played in society. This is one avenue to that can be explored.
Our current logo is a hummingbird - which has served us well over the past year, but we are trying to move away from that. First, because it was just too angular and "sharp". It had great reviews for men, but not for women. We are looking for something gender-neutral. Secondly, I feel like damn-near everyone has a hummingbird for a logo these days! We don't want to appear to be followers just because this logo has become popular...
In essence, we are looking for new ideas.
Finally, I would say that we place a heavier weight on a logo that is simple and elegant rather than something that is super-detailed. We want something that is easily readable and could conceivably be adapted to be an app icon on your iPhone.
That's all! Thank you for lending us your formidable creative powers!
