I'm looking for logos that are clean and simple.
I'm using Wix.com to develop the website, so common effects or no effects is best. Needs to be easily matched to simple web design, etc.
No more than 2, maybe 3 colors.
Incorporate the idea of people meeting and collaborating, but more abstract graphics to do so.
NEW: As a group facilitator, I'm often using felt markers to write on a flipchart, so a design that has an organic, drawn by hand feel to it may suit my product offering and personality fairly well. I considered whether an easel or flipchart should be incorporated, but I think the flipchart is the tool, whereas group collaboration is the result or outcome. The logo should represent the high ideal, not the tool.
As a way to represent "Optimal", incorporate elements of Venn diagrams (overlapping circles or elipses), or curves (bell curves, parabolas, circles).
I've considered circular designs that might reflect the O of optimal but this is maybe lower priority.
I do not like: multi-colored logos, logos that seem too flowery, logos that are too boxy.
I've included a link to a pinterest page of collected logo ideas that mostly follow these design parameters and caught my attention. The best one, I think, is the Global Meeting logo.
