My business is my name, bill lloyd (usually lower case for no good reason). The winning logo will represent me both personally and professionally. I would like to incorporate an icon, but am open to designs without. It will likely be an ironic Fortune 500 design of sorts.
IMPORTANT: The winning logo will have no trace of a microphone or a mouth in it. In fact, if you thought about putting a microphone in it, maybe you shouldn't enter. It's about the attitude not the job.
note: I also use billfnlloyd.com (as in "Bill Effing Lloyd"), but find people tend to say "Bill Floyd" when they see it. I am open to incorporating the "f'n" if it can be done successfully. The four "L"s in a row have also proven to be a challenge.
Some descriptive terms:
Personal- sarcastic, loud, witty, rock 'n roll, fun, creative, not lame, competitive, awesome, laid back, jeans, t-shirt, vans, athletic
Professional- slick, broad, on-time, professional, fun, premium, expensive, classy, elite, worth it
I realize the disparity between the two, but such is my work. I am a regular voice promoting heavy CBS dramas, but am also a regular doing silly skits on Jimmy Kimmel Live (http://www.youtube.com/user/JimmyKi…xkpucULJPo).
You can find my voice samples on voexpress.com.
Some logo ideas I never quite hashed out fully include a 70's era rock band type design (Boston?), and/or my logo on a t-shirt, which itself would be the logo. These are a couple ideas. Maybe they're stupid. I don't know.
Now please go kick ass and make me an awesome logo.
