NO light bulbs and NO microphones in the logo, please (those are too cliche/dated). I also do NOT want my logo to be a combination of my initials. Instead, I would like some kind of image in my logo that I can use as a stand-alone image even without my name and tag line. The image should be sleek, elegant, and stylized rather than literal. So, for example, I think that an owl might be a great image for my business/brand because my job is to share wisdom, insight, and inspiration with my clients. But I do not want the image in my logo to look like the perfect drawing of an owl from a bird book. Instead, it should be a sleek, minimalist, abstract owl. A symbol. An icon. I would like the overall look-and-feel of my logo to be sleek, intelligent, confident, modern, creative, and inspiring. Not stuffy or old-fashioned. I prefer deep, rich, lively colors rather than pastels or black-and-white. If you have any questions, please message me and I will do whatever I can to be of assistance. Thank you very much, and I'm excited to see what you create!
