How s-man started their logo design journey

Summary

Young modern edge photographer breaking into the pro wedding scene looking to launch biz with a simple yet artistic logo design.

Company name

Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

While my main focus will primarily be on Wedding Photography, I will regularly be taking on assignments related to all aspects of Lifestyle portraiture including maternity, newborns, kids and family.

The following are links to photographers who's style and work have lent much inspiration to mine.

I wish to use the logo on my website/blog, for print marketing materials, and as a watermark for the photographs themselves.

My target audience will include young, leading edge professionals. When a client sees the logo they should think artistic,imaginative, skillfull, fashionable, contemporary....

Wants

Vector file so that it is easily resizable and transferrable between the needs indicated in the description.

okay I've decide to go with ONE of 3 styles;

1) see link http://www.logolounge.com/images/20…ourish.jpg - here my "S" or "Sherwin" become part of flourish style design (brought to life with a flourish if you will) The examples are done in an artful way that they don't look too feminine. Note that I do not like the 4th flourish example. I imagined that "B" was an "S" and underneath was simply Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography. I could use that "S" on its own to batch watermark photos and the "S" with "Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography" as the logo on the website, blog, etc.

2) using http://www.jeshderox.com as the inspiration (you need to navigate through the intro) and designs #24 and #54 , I enjoy how the flourish or vintage ornaments surround and frame his name "Jesh de Rox". Again, please use flourishes and ornaments that are NOT feminine in nature such as vines and leaves and florals. If you do these leaves and florals need to be more abstract or geometric in nature

3) I also enjoy where a cool vector symbol is used above my brand name such as #4 , #62 , and #71 . My only concern, are these symbols designed or are they just purchased? I don't have a problem with the fact that they are just downloaded but is it possible that the designs are too common and can be used by other designers for other logos? That would suck if somebody had the same symbol in their logo. Is there any way to put my stamp on it? perhaps build in a "s" or "sa" in the center for example?

Hope this helps, if I wasn't clear on anything please feel free to message me! I'm going to paste these design amendments into my brief. I apologize from getting away from my original requirements but you amazing designers opened the doors to a whole bunch of new ideas and possibilities! Thank-you again for lending me your talent and imagination!

With respect to the website background colour I am still torn between using the elegant black or going with clean and simple white. While I am open to your colour choice on the logo I would guard against using too many. Remember, clean and simple :)

Having said all that, please feel free to break all the rules if you think you have some wicked design that might blow me away!

Finally, this is not a requirement but if your icon/symbol fits, I may choose to use the icon/symbol on its own to watermark my photos. ie without using the "Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography" part. Ultimately in this case there would be two files a) Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography w/ the iconic or initials based symbol b) just the iconic/initials based symbol.

Don't want

I don't want anything playful, cute, or cartoonish.

I don't want any clip art images like hearts, brides, and grooms.

Please no camera related icons and mechanisms like aperature rings etc.

Nothing multi-coloured or too busy and chaotic looking

I prefer that you don't use a script font for "Sherwin Aguinaldo Photography" or make it look too feminine.

No letter reflections

Finally, I don't want the monogram/letter based icon to look like I could have done it myself ie pick a font and type "SA"
