We are a young beekeeping couple looking to have a cool logo that we can use on baseball hats, t-shirts etc. We are looking for something simple that can be used on our honey labels, the side of a vehicle, to brand our beekeeping wooden gear, or make stencils, stamps, stickers etc. We live on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia and are in love with the nature that surrounds us. The old growth forests, oceans and mountains. Not to mention the wildflowers that feed our honeybees!
We are looking for a logo that is somewhat monochromatic. Styles we like are custom illustrations, vintage, minimalist, mystical and whimsical. We are hoping for something that will appeal to both sexes, without being over masculine or feminine. A honeybee doesn't have to be the main focus of the logo, it can be small.
We prefer graphics of honeybees from the side profile as apposed to the overhead view that you typically see. We are looking for something modern and hip, not a cutesy or childish honeybee, something realistic. We envision doing pops of colour in some way in the future, weather its the background colour of our shirts or something along those lines. We want to convey a positive, uplifting feeling.
The attached images are some ideas I drew...
