I don’t have any specific ideas in mind for the logo but it’s for a retirement home so it should be sofisticated and classy. Also, please keep in mind that the logo will be displayed outside and in the lobby so the coloring and design needs to be something that works displayed live, not just on paper.
For your information, the name comes from a beautiful coastal town in Italy called Sorrento.
I’ve attached a rendering of the retirement home but this does not mean you should make it part of the logo. It’s just FYI.
PS. I am seeing a lot of designs with a separate logo design for the "S" in Sorrento. I'd like to see some options with the logo being the actual word Sorrento, not just the "S". Or maybe do a creative "S" at the beginning of Sorrento.
PPS. I added a design to my brief of a previous logo I did that I really like. It has a logo that's separate from the name but was positioned next to the name, not on top. Maybe this'll be an inspiration for you.
PPPS. Maybe try a variation of the music symbol for G clef (the one that looks like an & and maybe sort of like an S). If you play around with it, it can be an S.
PPPPS. I also posted a logo I found online I like. Very sumple yet classy.
