The logo should represent the rustic beauty of the instruments themselves. It should be elegant with a touch of the rustic and earthy. Some intricacy is fine, but the effect shouldn't be busy.
If possible, we would love a reduced version of the logo with just the initials for the business card. However, we are open to all kinds of ideas.
We are open to logos with or without instruments. However, if instruments are included, we prefer that they are woodwinds and strings. Specifically, we prefer recorders and violas da gamba (pictures below) - NOT modern violins/violas. We've included pictures of other instruments that could be included or serve as inspiration.
Also, I have opted to allow stock images, but we would prefer a drawing/design rather than photos. We've only included photos to give you an idea of the instruments we carry, not to be used in the logo.
Overall, we are very open to new ideas and are looking forward to seeing your creativity!
