How adowling started their logo design journey

Company name

Gentle Birth Options

Overview

Hi! We're a homebirth midwife practice (not too many of those around, huh?!) looking for a fresh unique logo that adequately portrays our business look & feel! We are an all female group, passionate about women and babies. We have 1 midwife, and 5 birth assistants who also share the office duties, and are so passionate about the cause and purpose that they dedicate a great deal of their time to making this option available to women.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are a fairly new practice in the area. Our target audience is primarily women, most of them naturally minded and eco-friendly, though not all. Although pregnant women are our primary audience, we also provide well women care to women of all ages. Due to the nature of our audience, including non-pregnant women, we try to portray a non-medical image, and provide their care in a home setting or home-like setting.

Requirements

Our primary colors are natural tones, particularly a bright green (not lime, though - think "lizard green") and dark brown. We seek something that is organic, free flowing, curvy and non-medical. Incorporating trees (think tree of life type trees) are options. The logo should display the practice name (Genle Birth Options, LLC) and contain an element that can be used alone to represent the business. It will be used on the website, blog, facebook & other social media networks, on letterhead, on all patient forms, etc so it should also not be too elaborate and easily readable in all formats.

A feminine look is desired, though it shouldn't be "girly" or "flirty" as it also needs to look professional so that it is obvious it is a credible business run by a legit professional because it will also be on paperwork that may go with a mother should she require a transport from home to hospital.

We are open to some creative freedom with the image and overall look & feel and we have no attachments to any particular image going into this project. We're just wanting a clean fresh unique image that encompasses what we stand for while looking professional. We encourage you to take the information we've provided & run with it! Our current website, which is also getting an overhaul, is: http://www.gentlemidwifery.com/

Other inspirations that the midwife has been drawn to:
http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-il…f-life.php (images without roots though - she feels the roots make the image too harsh)

http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-il…-roots.php
(also without roots - the tree w/ colored leaves is a good representation of the greens she currently uses)

http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-il…oncept.php
This clean, organic, natural look appeals to her as well.

She's also not opposed to something a bit more feminine such as this:

She's not sure she wants any of these exact trees incorporated, but this should give a good example of her taste, style, etc.
