Update as of May 22, 2012:
Our client has now decided that he does not want to have any people or people profiles in the design. And he is insterested in the design using white / blue and dark navy blue, as opposed to gold.
Coat of arms or a school emblem style of logo
Modern, strong, masculine styling
Do not make it decorative like the uploaded example
Company name: Pace Recovery Center .
1. Center of the emblem could be capital P OR maybe have the word PACE be in the top border and RECOVERY be in the bottom left border, and CENTER be in the bottom right border.
2. Motto (perhaps in a ribbon at the bottom) Positive Attitude Changes Everything
3. No Animals
4. Profile of a person is preferred for the illustration on the sides of the emblem
