I am working with a company to build a website and we need a logo. The company is a small institute in California that offers psychotherapy services. They specialize in health psychology, consultation with families and physicians for care management of patients with chronic, life-threatening illnesses. They also have Certified Hypnotherapists. The practitioners have decades of experience in many different areas of expertise in psychology.
The owners are drawn to images of the butterfly leaving the cocoon. I have attached pdf that shows the logos the owner likes as well as the images he is drawn to for his business.
The image they like the most is the illustration of the butterfly taking flight from the open healing hands. That said, they are also drawn to the tree logo that illustrates the tree half dormant, and the other half with new growth with its roots in the ground. One idea we have for the logo is to translate the open hands and butterfly into a logo. The other idea is to use the concept of the tree with a butterfly on the tree branch beginning to take flight. The institute is called, Center for Adult Development.
One more note: we do not want the topography image of "CAD" in the logo.
In the attached file you will see the first few logos that the owner really loves. The logo at the end of the pdf file is for ZO Skin Health I included to show the colors he likes most. The images of the healing hands are meant to be images of inspiration and convey the feeling the owner is looking for.
