We have a tag line we are using that we do not want incorporated into the design, but should help: For people who've caught the speaking bug and want to succeed!
The .com isn't required to be part of the logo, but it can be.
We want a ladybug and an old-fashioned microphone somehow incorporated into the design. The ladybug is going to be our mascot.
Our colors are the following, however, I am open to any ideas. And of course the design has to look good in black & white.
R: 145 G: 36 B: 96
C: 0 M: 192 Y: 86 K: 110
R: 228 G: 100 B: 31
C: 0 M: 143 Y: 220 K: 27
The attached file has a few mock ups that are too busy and don't work, but may give you an idea of what style we like.
I am also open to any other ideas and suggestions. I look forward to seeing your designs!
UPDATE BASED ON EARLY DESIGNS:
- I'd also like some element of "love" in there as well
- The emphasis should be on speaking, more than "luv" because speaking training is the main business.
- If you decide to incorporate the ".com" into the image, I would like to see it turned vertically.
