1. Try to focus on natural elements rather than the digital or manmade. Think of this more as something for a National Geographic or a Discovery Channel than a video game company (we love forests, mountains, wildlife, animal dens, water, etc.).
2. We want to strike a balance between playful and mature. Our games our cross generational; we target kids, their parents, and their parents' parents. What would appeal to all age groups?
3. We don't want the logo to look like a road sign.
4. We don't want to call out one specific animal species (foxes, bears, lions, and wolves all give birth to cubs). Is there an inclusive way to make a reference to cubs? An abstract way?
Here are a couple example logos that we're rather fond of if that will help inspire you:
Thank so much for your help! Have fun :)
