We want the main focus of our logo to be a ‘K’ with maybe a house or some other real estate image incorporated into it. However we really want the K to be distinguishable and stand out over everything else, so maybe just a K would be best if other images overshadow it.
If possible, we'd also like the words “Khoa “K” Dinh – Realtor” in a stylized way incorporated in small letters around, beside, on top of, or anywhere near the logo. In some cases, we want to use the logo by itself and at other times we will be using “Khoa “K” Dinh – Realtor”, so a design that can stand on its own will be much appreciated.
The logo needs to be professional, but we also want it to be interesting and eye-catching. We want to convey a friendly, approachable image, so something that’s too straightforward or…intimidating won’t work.
We did a little searching around for ‘K’ logos to see what we liked and didn’t like. Here’s an example of something we think is not friendly or approachable, something we DO NOT like:
The colors of our website (http://khoakdinh.com/) are orange (#ff7b00) and lime green (#a5f0033), so we’d like the logo to be mainly orange with lime green accents or a lime green background (if you like a different shade of the above colors or even a different color scheme, we’re open to suggestions…neither of us are designers, so your input is much appreciated!).
We will be using this logo on open house signs and other marketing material to brand ourselves. The logo will most often be seen from a distance, so something that is relatively simple and that stands out will be best. Our head realtor’s name is Khoa and his nickname is “K”, so it’s really important for the K in the logo to be very distinguishable and not too stylized. Even though we are a team of realtors, we are young realtors and want to show a fresh, lively image that’s also professional.
And if you want to completely go off the grid and give us something different than the thing's we've mentioned, we're open to any and all suggestions. We're not designers - you're the experts, so we'll leave it up to you!
Thank you for your time and effort! We’re really excited to see what you come up with!
