I would prefer an abstract woman that is not on a pole (our current logo at poleforthesoul.com is a woman on a pole and it gives some people the wrong impression). But if you can put a woman on a pole in a tasteful, non-suggestive way, I'm happy to consider that design as well. But a woman without a pole is optimal.
My favorite idea for a new logo is a woman in a blissful or soulful pose much like this woman: http://www.poleforthesoul.com/image…design.gif
But if the woman is too thin, this may discourage plus size women from trying our classes. So the woman should be so abstract that her body size is indeterminable, much like this woman: http://www.poleforthesoul.com/images/Woman.jpg
So basically a combination of those two images linked above: ecstatic and abstract
You don't have to redesign the Pole For The Soul.com text if you don't want to. I like the current text, but I'm open to new designs that creatively combine the woman and a new text font also. If the description here is too restrictive, feel free to be creative outside my requirements and if I love your design more than my own ideas, I'll choose yours!
EDIT: I forgot to mention our company colors are black and red. And please include the ".com" if you are adding the company name to the logo. Thanks!
