I'd like it kept very simple, even abstract and if possible, the logo would be a picture of both a telephone and a venue.
The roof of the venue is the phone receiver and the windows of the venue are the telephone buttons. Whether the buttons spell out 1300 VENUES or not depends how congested it looks. I think it might also be a good idea to write "1300 VENUES" below the image.
1300 VENUES is a fast dialing number for my firm
IMPORTANT: the logo should represent a phone but instead of the receiver from the top there should be a roof (venue = house) and below it a dialing pad from the phone
As far as colours go, I'm not exactly sure but I saw a dark purple and lime green combo yesterday that I liked. I'd like your ideas on colours too.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
