Hi there, I appreciate your time and talent so much! Design is not something I am skilled in.
Notes about the logo:
The logo will be used on our website and on social media - similar to this site http://blinkworldwide.com where their logo is at the top left, and similar to the Brene Brown example attached that says Resarcher, Story Teller.
As you'll see in the examples attached, I love the circle element, open or closed.
I am open to the logo centering around the letter E for my name, I am not interested in using my initials, ED. So either E, or a combination of E and Elizabeth DiAlto or E and Trust Advocate. Truth Teller. If you are going to incorporate the words Trust Advocate and Truth Teller it needs to be both of them, not one or the other.
I'll likely use the logo in black and white on various images and banners for things, so pops of color aren't necessary - but if you want to experiment with it, deep royal blue is my preference.
My audience will be corporate, blend of male and female, but my personality and brand are outgoing, spunky, courageous and fun - so to bring those elements into the logo would be great.
Not interested in overly feminine or whimsical script fonts. Now that some designs have come in I've added several more font examples in the style and energy of what I'm going for.
The fonts I'll be using on the site are Montserrat and Avallon (images attached) - so the logo needs to pair well with these in terms of a broader design scheme or incorporate them.
Thanks again, I'm so excited!
