I am looking for a simple, bold logo that I can use as a watermark, website logo, etc. I like to think of my photography as hip, modern, offering a "new view" on what might otherwise be considered a typical situation. Specifically I'd like to see a logo that creates some sort of icon out of the J and Z initials. If there is going to emphasis on one over the other, the Z should be the focal point. Ideally, I'd like to see a logo that is balanced on the left with this icon, and on the right with Jon Zander Photography written out in whatever way you see fit. I should be able to use just the JZ icon on it's own to stand as a recognizable icon, or combine it with the written out Jon Zander Photography for a more professional execution. Think more "Calvin Klein" logo, less "LandOLakes Butter."
Stay away from "script" fonts or anything that comes across as too feminine or too "luxurious." While I'm very professional, I don't want to come across as overly formal or cold.
If you would like to add color, make sure it is a subtle hint, not overwhelming.
Looking forward to seeing what you've got.
