We don't want any children in our design, forest animals would be better. We want an outdoor forest theme, like a backyard theatre with animals running the show.
The logo does not have to be minimal but we would like the option to have a scaled down version of the logo as well as a larger logo with more going on.
We would like a picture logo with the name incorporated somehow. A stage curtain hung between two trees and a banner with Playground Stage painted on it would be an ideal way to incorporate the name. Since we are a children's theatre bold lettering would work best. Most of our young children are beginning to learn how to read and many cannot read cursive script.
Animals around the stage and in the trees doing different things like sewing a costume or pulling on the stage rope, or an owl with a clipboard, fireflies in a jar for stage lighting, etc. These are just ideas and possibly too many ideas for a logo, we will rely on your expertise and talents to come up with something!
We are located in the mountain region of North Carolina in the US and we would like our logo to reflect the type of deciduous trees that we have here. Palm trees and other tropical trees are not found in our area. Oak, maple, and pine trees are common here.
