Strong Mountain Media is a consulting company that focuses on teaching brands how to do digital and social media marketing. We help clients manage their brands and online reputations with consumers and the press.
My last name is Monteforte. That means Strong Mountain in Italian.
Impress me with your wit by creatively combining the concepts of a strength and a mountain. Bonus points if the logo also conveys professional consulting expertise. Part of the challenge in executing this logo will be that I don't want it to look like a gym logo. So, flexing muscles and barbells are risky choices. (Update: Flexing muscles and barbells haven't worked at all. Please avoid.)
You don't have to be literal. Maybe to you, strength is represented as a wolf or something poetic. Show me your creativity! I'll be looking for a witty designer who I can work with again as I bring on more clients who need brands built.
I'm looking for a design that will appeal to high end customers with elegance and class.
Ideally it will be a simple, flat, negative space design that conveys strength and confidence.
A creative use of negative space to convey the strong mountain concept is important to me.
The ideal color is a corporate blue. Gray and black would be acceptable accent colors.
If the creative concept is strong enough to convey the theme, then the words "Strong Mountain" do not need to be in the logo. In fact, I would prefer if the image carried the theme so well that I would not need the words.
IMPORTANT: Please do not give me Shutterstock logos or logos from other stock companies. If that's what I wanted, I would have purchased that. I have received at least 50 concepts using a stylized stock S in the form of a mountain and a stylized stock modern mountain graphic. It got to be so overwhelming that I made the contest blind and added a few days to it so I could see some true creativity. Please don't submit stock images or any variations of them (that means flipped,rotated, cropped, color changed, any of it). It's a waste of my time and yours.
