Marst Properties is a subsidiary of Marst. Marst Properties rehabs and rents out homes (single and multi-family) with a long-term hold and accumulate strategy.
I'm looking for a strong, distinctive brand.
This branding will be used with contractors, professionals including banks, lawyers, accountants and prospective tenants.
The emphasis on the logo design (Combo --> Text + Symbol) should be the word Marst, so that in the future, additional lines of business can be substituted in place of the word Properties. For example, a future line of business could be "Marst Software" or "Marst Property Management".
I'd like to incorporate an Oak Tree or Oak Leaf into the brand. This can be subtle or overt.
Colors in the range of Steel Blue, Light Steel Blue, Denim, Faded Denim, Light Slate Gray are all appealing. Off-whites / creams or oranges to compliment or to provide emphasis may also be an option. The use of texture or color variation to add class or sophistication is also fine. A 3-D metal effect could also work.
I'm open to any creative ideas.
