I require a logo/banner that captures the pure essence of simplicity.
My business name is Blue Pearl Life Design.
I had initially thought of a single blue pearl in an oyster, and am still open to this, however, I now think that the business name in the correct font with a single blue pearl (It will need to be ‘the perfect blue pearl’ ;)) cleverly placed with perhaps a nice simple linking element will do just fine. Sizing of the pearl element with respect to the other elements is up to your discretion. I am also open to the words Blue Pearl being larger than the words Life Design.
My preference is for the logo to be wider rather than taller as it will also be used as a banner on my website which is being created as we speak (Not the current one).
As far as colours go, that is up to you (apart from the blue pearl) to make it work. The background is to be transparent so that the logo can be used on multiple shades of white etc.
Have fun, be simply creative and I look forward to awarding the prize to the best design. And of course, if you are a designer that believes they have the perfect design and it is outside of my suggestions please put it forward, all will be considered.
I will require psd and jpeg files of the end product. The end product also needs to be scalable, at least downwards from a decent size.
In summary, keep it crisp, clear, and sharp.
