Hey, my name's Dan and I need a logo for my latest product.
This Logo is for an online marketing course designed for professional handymen and other home service contractors.
I picture a logo that is primarily text, but it needs to have some mechanical elements to give it some character. Gears or other machine components would be a good start.
I'm looking for a think font that is masculine and easy to read. Non-serif fonts are preferred.
Also, I'd like the words "Marketing Machine" to be emphasized - so that means that in the logo, make these words larger than the word "Handyman."
I really like two word logos, where one word is a different color from the other one. I think this can be done with the words "Marketing Machine" and handyman can be a smaller word sitting somewhere on top of that.
I'd like it to have at least two colors in the logo, and I'm leaning toward blue as the main color, but am open to other colors as well.
As for the shape of the logo, please submit designs that are wider than they are tall - since this logo will primarily be used in the header of a website.
I'd recommend going with something more creative with the gear if you want to stand out. Just putting an H inside of a gear has already been done by others and isn't what I'm looking for.
Again, DO NOT PUT AN H IN THE GEAR. I don't want to emphasize the word handyman, I want to emphasize that it is about marketing.
So far, I like the designs with more than one gear. It seems like two, maybe three gears is best.
