Logo types to explore
If you don't understand the meaning of the word "regatta", please look it up. And no, we do not sell sailing equipments. :) Reasons why I chose the name "Regatta": - The imagery is sunny... good weather, open sea, nice breeze, etc. - Regatta - while still a race, is a friendly competition, for the love of the sport itself. It reflects how I think of marketing/my work. While I love my work, it's not do or die or saving lives. So I aim for a relaxed, balanced mentality, minimal fire drills, and only good stress. But it's still very competitive, energetic and successful. - Regatta is a high-end, luxury sport. It implies our marketing services are also high-end, with a high price point. Our target audience is: - Highly educated. Often with advanced degrees. CEOs, VPs of Marketing and Sales. - 80% men. Company executives. So avoid pink or anything too ornate. - Age range: 35 to 55. We want the logo to be: - simple - elegant - understated - with one or two accents - professional - upbeat We do NOT want the logo to be: - ornate - TOO detailed - flashy - old school - blocky - dark/moody Once we create a new logo we'll need business cards designed as well. The attached photo shows you a logo whose colors I like - though I don't think it looks completely balanced. Update: Another idea just came to mind. Let me know what you think - what if we made the two "A"s in "REGATTA" into little sails? Not exactly triangles, maybe with a curved edge on the right. Striped sails are fine... or solid, whichever you deem more appealing. Then stack the word "MARKETING" on the bottom, but make sure the sides are flush. "MARKETING" could also be in a smaller font size, or otherwise DE-emphasized, so the eye goes to the stylized "REGATTA" first. Also, as mentioned earlier, blue/red/orange/gray are all fine (not necessarily ALL of them). I hope this helps. But don't let this idea LIMIT you! After all, you're the designer. I'm just a marketer with ideas. :) And when I talk about happy, saturated colors for the sails, I'm thinking of http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Rainbow-Regatta-Posters_i311069_.htm and http://www.allposters.com/-st/Sally-Caldwell-Fisher-Posters_c23072_.htm. Hopefully those really help illustrate the picture I have in mind. Thanks!
