I love peeling paint, old barn wood, exposed brick, old hardwood floors, sun flare, graffiti. I want my logo to feel organic, not in any way industrial or corporate. I love the colors of my current logo, which are blues and greens, but I'm open to other ideas. I want something fun and playful. I would also be more apt to choose a logo that had a secondary logo within it - something that I could use as a symbol of my studio and as a favicon, but this isn't a requirement.
I absolutely do not want the following in my logo: butterfly, zapfino font, papyrus font, film edges or a camera - things that are just so literal they're ridiculous.
I like quirky little things, like Boutwell Studio (http://www.boutwellstudio.com/), that has a little blue bird that hops around the site saying random things; but I want something that's all my own, not a copy of what someone else is doing. I like abstract symbols and shapes that mimc shapes and things in nature.
