This is a quote from my client:
"Mostly, I want to have a Viking Longboat going into New York Harbor.
The idea being that we are helping people take back their money from the wall street machine.
I'm hoping to have the company name worked in there and maybe a slogan "regain possession and control" or "take back possession and control"…something like that…
I think that the stereo typical red and white sail colors would be good…
Basically, I'd like it to be obvious that it is the New York skyline that we are approaching with a long boat. It could include other viking type stuff, swords, shields, etc."
Try to incorporate my client's desires without being overly tacky/cartoony. And, as always, let the creativity flow!
