***Update*** We have come up with our own concept that we like for our logo. We are thinking of a Turtle (or possibly another animal) where the "E/e" for Eco Empire is the shell in a kind of minimal drawing. I have attached some sketches for reference. As you can see, I am definitely not an artist lol, so we would be looking for someone to take this idea and bring it to life :). (ps, the rest of the brief below remains true)
I hope you're well and feeling creative.
We are looking for a logo for a new company. The brand is called "Eco Empire" and we will be making environmentally friendly / plastic free products (e.g. Shampoo in bar form, rather than coming in a plastic bottle).
The name is supposed to represent a kind of juxtaposition between the words. "Eco" usually representing something friendly/positive, and "Empire" normally representing something evil/non-caring. We as people care a lot about ridding the world of plastic, helping the environment and helping people live more sustainable lives, but we don't take ourselves too seriously in life/general. And the brand should represent that - hence the name haha. The logo should feel the same.
We would like either a symbol to represent our brand (like that of Nike or Apple) or a typography logo (like that of MailChimp, Virgin or Amazon). If it is a symbol, for now, it will be accompanied with the name, but down the line needs to be able to stand-alone and be recognisable.
The logo can't be based on any specific colour, as the nature of our products will make it difficult to maintain one colour scheme and we like a more minimal feel (again, like that of Nike or Apple) as we will need to print it on things like soap.
In closing, please could you create a 100% original logo - either an original symbol with "Eco Empire" text (keeping in mind the text and logo at some stage will be separated) or a typography logo.
Looking forward to receiving your designs :)
Eco Empire Team.
