We are looking for a brand Icon from the initials (NB) as well as our brand name to be incorporated into the logo (Nick Bogatin). Our initial primary use will be in a website header, email header, and print materials such as cards, brochures, and mailings. For this logo, our tagline may be included BUT it should be done in a way that allows the tagline to be left out (where necessary).
Our desire is to position ourselves as a luxury brand, and command luxury pricing. We do not want to compete on pricing, even where are pricing may be competitive. Instead, we will focus on creating unequaled services/products. We also want to position our brand as professional but as we are heavily involved in tech and a young company, we also want to have a youthful/fresh appearance.
The documents I attached are simply the closest things I could find but they should not limit your creativity. Below are some notes on the files I uploaded... I mention what we like. If I don't specifically mention that I like something about those images, you should assume it is either not liked or not important to model that aspect.
Website Color Scheme - This is likely our website color and texture scheme (unless our final logo forces us to change it) for your consideration.
NB Logo Concept 4 - What we like about this is the 3 dimensional feel to the icon, yet it is still simple.
NB Logo Concept 1 - We like the use of the connection of the two letters.
NB Logo Concept 5 - I included this one because it combines some of the elements mention above (icon and brand name, icon is initials, and they connect). Also, this is a good approximation of how we will use the logo in our website.
A final note... the images attached are designed to give you an "idea" of concepts we liked. Please be creative because we are relying on you all to really show us something we love.
