Initially - a logo - then likely our website.
The logo will need to live in many different contexts (web, business cards, tweets/email footers, powerpoint presentations) so can't be too imposing/complex.
We are open and interested in looking at two options -
I) Stand alone icon plus the name
II) Name with a tagline (placeholder 'The Curiosity Shop')
We currently are very OPEN on how this will turn out - we're expecting some great ideas and don't want to limit things.
However, some initial ideas we had as start points & thought sparkers...
The name itself could be the anchor, obviously
The whole 'Curiosity Shop' idea - so CREATIVITY and CURIOSITY are big themes for us...
We like magic, exploration, creation, wisdom.
The work we do is a blend of art and science.
The Garden of Eden may be interesting
Related to the above, a main role of ours is 'Growing Ideas'
Unrelated but true... ultimately, we're brains for hire
The challenge will be to make sure that Adam's Egg does not feel stuck in an 'olde worlde' time warp. We are about fresh new ideas. We're not averse to retro-cool Victoriana, but at the end of the day, it's got to be a Modern Curiosity Shop.
So we can't be too staid, overly quaint or eccentric. We can't go too far off the deep end in terms of playfulness – we ultimately need to be taken seriously.
