You guys are the pros and I want you to have creative freedom with this, and the logo has to represent the following:
- expertise / being an expert / being an authority
- command respect
- raising standards
- moving UP in the world
- expecting better results
- being better/the best
To represent prestige and results I was thinking of having some sort of icon of a trophy with a star as part of it. maybe in silver/midnight blue combination of some sort. i am open to ideas from you about how best to represent this prestige and ambition.
Another way to express prestige is to have some sort of a 'crest' with my initials in, without making it look too tacky or like a gimmick. this is just an idea, you are the creative genius - not me!!
In terms of typeface, I would like to see some examples of a really professional and prestigious font but also other examples of my name as a signature. i think when a signature is done correctly, it looks very classy (see some of the examples I have chosen).
I look forward to working with you!
