Although this is a baby and children's portrait business, I want my
logo to convey an elegant, classic and simplistic design. I don't
fancy patterns in logos and it predominantly the text and name that I
would like focusing on with a luxurious feel.
I love the classic designer logos of Chanel, Mulberry, Prada and
I had a play around with logos myself to get an idea of how my new
name and logo would look and attach this but I would like the
input of your designers and this is attached merely as a starting
point. "AliLulu Portraits" is the main part of the log and "by Alison
Edwards" is the second part in a smaller, and possibly, different
Finally, and this may not work given that I would like my logo to be
elegant and simplistic but if anyone is able to very, very subtly add
the "swirl" part of a cornetto ice-cream (not the cone) to my logo
(possibly as a replacement for a dot on the letter 'i' of AliLulu), I
would like to see if it could be incorporated in a classic way. If
not, then it's not a problem. The cornetto is symbolic to me
personally hence my request but if it's inclusion loses the
then I would not want it.
I require two versions, one for a white background and one for a dark
background (for adding my copyright logo to photos).
UPDATE 15.9.14 FOR THE FINAL ROUND:-
The main things, after seeing the designs so far, that are important
1. All of the text is easy to read at a first glance. I don't want
people to look at the logo and have to work out what it says (if that
2. I'm uncertain whether AliLulu looks better in capitals or
lowercase. I think when it is in capitals, it makes it harder to read
but that depends on the font so any variations showing lowercase and
all capitals would be great to compare.
3. Please avoid the inclusion of cameras/lenses in the logo as I don't
particularly like these.
4. Also, please have a look at Stella McCartney's logo. Although I
would not wish to copy or have all of the text in dots, I wondered
what part of the logo would like like similar (bearing in mind my
point 1 above).
5. Finally, whilst I am still on the same path of a classic and simple
font, I would like to see if any designers can give the logo at a
little extra. I'm not sure what or how this can be done but I'm open
to suggestions. I would suggest a subtle approach, nothing loud.
Perhaps the logo contained within box/circle design but rather than a
straight line (which has already been done) a dotted/dashed line.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing any further designs you have.
PS: I still require two versions; one with black font to work on a
light background and one white font to work on a dark background.
