I need a logo for a new web site/business that I'm launching.
The main title (and URL) is "Things to do in the U.P." and the subtitle is "1,000 things to do in Michigan's Upper Peninsula" ("U.P." stand for "Upper Peninsula") It's mostly rural and has lots of outdoorsy types of things to do. On the web site I'll be blogging about hiking, camping, sightseeing, eating, drinking, art galleries and other fun stuff.
I'd like the logo to incorporate the outline of the U.P. if possible (I've attached a sketch) but I'd prefer the outline to be a little bit abstract rather than an exact outline of the Upper Peninsula. Please google "Upper Peninsula" to get more info on what it looks like if you need it.
And I want this logo to STAND OUT. It doesn't have to be fancy. Not plain, but not fancy. Simple with a little spice, I guess you could say.
I'd like to be able to put the logo on a business card, then stick that business card on a cork board (at my gym, for example) and have it be readable from a few feet away.
I'm thinking red would be best as the main color because those are the logos that seem to stand out the most to me (Think Target, Staples, etc. Not the most creative, but they definitely stand out, and that's what really matters to me).
Please incorporate the slogan "1,000 things to do in Michigan's Upper Peninsula" into the logo.
Have fun! I'll do my best to give each submission feedback!
