Here are some samples I mocked up in PPT and copied to Word. Also included a few of these in the attach logos section.
My eventual website domain will be mpparadise.com.
My name is Martin Paul Paradise. In the “MP ones” below, I was trying to factor my initials into the logo. Don’t know if I like this or not. Trying to make mine look similar to http://www.michaelhyatt.com. I like his clean approach to his website design and like simple colors like black and blue and grey. Am starting a small business coaching and consulting company. Most of my friends and associates call me "MP" and didn't know if we could do some logo work around my initials...
The two logos below are designed to represent the 7 disciplines of business that I will be coaching or consulting on. Anything with a cool connected or semi-connected pieces might be a cool start for creative. The star one was modeled after emyth.com “7 areas of mastery”. I am in process of being certified as an EMyth coach. These are examples only. But the star one I don’t think is registered or specific to emyth.
Given a name like Paradise, I don’t want to have palm trees, Hawaiian islands, tropical drinks.. etc. in the logo… This needs to look business oriented and I would prefer kind of a masculine theme I don’t necessarily need the LLC in my name, but left it in for now. It is a registered business name in the state of Virginia
The fonts I use in most of my templates are Verdana and Franklin Gothic Medium. I like black, blue and grey. But will keep an open mind... :) Might want this to be able to stretch across a web page eventually.
Have not decided whether I need to include “business strategy and execution” in the logo. I guess I could include it on the website tagline or sublime if I wanted. Contact me at email@example.com if you have questions. Thanks and I am looking forward to seeing some cool ideas to choose from.
