I would love to have a logo as simple, playful, colorful, memorable, and easily recognizable as this one: http://www.cottagesincanada.com.
I like how the logo and text are all one element, not separate, and immediately memorable.
I also like the new Google and Wave logos.
I prefer bold line drawings to filled color, and curves to sharp geometric patterns. I don't want anything that looks corporate, or anything too ornate or fussy. The logo should suggest creativity, simplicity, and playfulness. The micro-niche sites are:
The actual Logo is "Creative Writing" only, but designed so that the third word can be inserted as needed. Please show how the third word would be used--the placement and color. I need to see how the "whole" will look.
Also, my site is about WRITING, so it's better not to make CREATIVE the focus.
If it is possible to create a logo that suggests the pen/ink drop and/or alphabet pile I'm currently using at http://www.be-a-better-writer.com, that would be beneficial and would make the change in design less jarring to visitors, but that's secondary to a striking design.
Please, no feathers--I don't like them and they're overused in my field.
I'm noticing that I'm most drawn to logos where "creative writing" is large and very easy to read, just as "cottages" is at http://www.cottagesincanada.com
I would like the winner to provide me with the original Photoshop file.
