I would like an illustration/logo that can be used for multiple purposes... to advertise around the web and in print, and to use on products (t-shirts, stickers, ipad cases, etc).
I'm very open to ideas, so don't want to provide too much direction as to not stifle creativity. The look I'm going for is fun but a bit professional as well... Please try to avoid stereotypes like tie-dye, rasta, etc
It might be nice to have a design that I can manipulate to be used as a wide banner (as is seen on my current website) as well as a square shape for Facebook, Twitter, etc.
I'm open to having some kind of character as a "mascot" ...perhaps a skunk, a deer or maybe a bear wearing some kind of cannabis t-shirt (saying "We legalized it!" or something like that).
I'm open to a very serious looking logo or a more playful logo.
I would like it to incorporate both the cannabis plant (can be subtle) and a colorado feel. Perhaps the colorado flag and/or mountains, or pine trees... maybe even the denver skyline (which has an iconic silhouette, see the attached file below for an example).
I'm ok with using the term "Colorado Cannabis Blog" or "ColoradoCannabisBlog.com"
The suggested slogan, "News | Events | Culture | Activism" is optional, feel free to incorporate it or leave it out.
Please see http://ColoradoCannabisBlog.com to see the style of my site... I am willing to alter the style of my site to suit the right logo if necessary.
