I look forward to working with everyone one on every design, my goal is 100% feedback. It is my job to work with you to create world-class design. We are grateful for you skills and creativity, our thanks.
We envision the icon to be along the lines of a champion character (knight, warrior, etc). Protective, stoic, proud, and ready to serve with confidence. Please explore a friendly and professional look. We are NOT looking for an attacking stance. We are NOT looking for a loony or excessively childish or goofy character.
The logo should be strong, classy, sleek and clean. Possibly a cartoon but not soft, frilly or flowery.
Abstract ideas also welcomed and will be considered. Please do NOT use excessive anime styling if any.
Icon usage will be similar to (http://www.hostgator.com/shared.shtml).
There are no restrictions on the font style or colors. Please explore both positive and negative space. Color choices may be strong or muted or even rely on some combination of color and texture.
We would also like to see optional designs which are two dimensional as well as designs which are three dimensional in nature.
We would like to explore multiple aspect ratios from roughly 2:1 (two widths to one height) to a 1:1 (one width to one height) for the entire logo.
We are replacing our current logo found here - http://www.championstartup.com
