We want an illustration of a pit bull type dog but the dog should look friendly/cute, should not have cropped ears or spiked collars. Also, this illustration should look more professional than "cutsie" or cartoonish.
We are looking to portray the transition or path from the dog's old life to their new (better) life. We want to make sure this logo is heartwarming, inviting, friendly, and warm. We don't want anything edgy, sharp, biting or anything that plays into the "negative" stereotype of pit bull type dogs.
We are really looking for a creative play on the name "The Pit Stop Rescue" and a subtle "illustration/image" of a pit bull type dog. The name of the rescue should be more prominent and the image of the dog should be incorporated into that title treatment.
*We are not looking for a head with untreated copy below or around it.
We are open to any ideas and are really leaning towards the designers to come up with a creative logo design. We have added a few photos of cute pit bulls as an example. Each pit bull has different and unique markings but I think the photos will give you the general idea of their body shape.
We are really looking forward to your submissions.
