I am a dentist, and shortly I will become the owner of a dental practice, and thus need a logo to go along with the new name of the practice. I have found a logo that I love, but obviously do not want to steal. (See submitted images) I would like this logo redesigned & combined with our office name - made to be different enough so that we are able to use it for ourselves. In this particular logo, I like how the tooth blends in with the "lake" elements of water, birds, and sailboat. I definitely want the tooth & water element to be included, but I'd be open to suggestions about other "lake" elements if it is too difficult to keep the sailboat & birds and made the logo different enough at the same time. Our practice is located in an area known for its beautiful lakes, hence the name of the practice.
I prefer blues and neutrals for the colors of the logo. Partially because of the literal "lake", but also because blue is a calming color, and I'd like patients to associate our name with calm. I do like the following color schemes:
I think with most of the categories, I am looking for something balanced. For example - not too traditional because I don't want to alienate young people, but not too modern for the same reason with older patients. We have patients as young as 1-2 years old, all the way to 90s+, so it should have more of a universal appeal. I'd also be open to something slightly less literal and perhaps a little bit more abstract than the source logo, but it doesn't necessarily have to be this way.
