We are open to all good ideas!
One idea is US map featuring the southeastern US States of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, with the firm's name worked into the background. If this were to be the logo, we would expect the rest of the US map area to be faded out / more in the background.
Another idea is that of a bridge, whether a real image or a graphic design, leading to the firm. The firm is "guiding clients over troubled waters" or something similar.
This "logo" is to be for our website, as the featured logo/banner across the home page (and probably other pages). We would expect that it would take up maybe 1/3 of the page (the top 1/3), leaving room for some other website material below.
We want the logo to be professional and interesting but not overpowering.
We look forward to working with you and providing feedback along the way!
Please have the image on a transparent background and in higher resolution. Thanks.
