I am just a lawyer, with basic PS skills -- so I hope you guys can take this sketch/idea and move it toward GREAT.
The fingerprint wold suggest handmade and personal. The check suggests certified. The > symbol suggests greater than other beverages. I need all or most of these elements.
I like the C typeface a lot but I am flexible about the fonts around the outer edge. The logo would be on the bottle neck, or on a can, and needs to be visible from 6 feet away, at a bar or store.
I like the blue but I am open to other colors such as black/white only.
Dec. 23, 2014: I really like the treatment on the check and > as in the uploaded image (in the small circles). I also like the font in the photo that mentions coffee; I saw that at Starbucks yesterday. I think it would look good around the outside, and to balance the big C.
Dec. 24, 2014: the first image with all elements is the one I sketched out. On piece 2, I like the blue C with white border/stroke. On piece 3, I like the positive (should be blue) ring. On piece 4, I like the blue ring. On piece 5, nice idea with lines. On piece 5, nice check symbol and yes good within small circle. On piece 7, great font, goes nicely with the big C. On piece 8, this is the best treatment of check and > symbols so far. On piece 9, I saw that font at Starbucks and like it (as also at 7).
Dec. 25, 2014: try to make it work to have the loud fingerprint on the inside of the circle and a soft water ripple on the outside -- to give the idea of beverage. Maybe about three ripples on left and three on right side, about like this http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UFGuP-Mr5. Note the the ripples on the left side should be in the same shape as a letter C.
Dec. 26, 2014, near the 1 (yellow pointer on last image) that idea seems really good. Begin the ripple there, putting about one ripple on the inside (in the ring) and then about 3 on the outside of the ring.
