The 5 elements are; Fire, Earth, Water, Wood and Metal. It is the chinese philosophy that all things are created from one or more of these elements.
NOTE: I do NOT want the logo to have a chinese look to it.
I would like the logo to be; Simple, Modern, and to Reflect Nature. I would like to avoid a logo to is extemely fancy or feminine.
The logo needs to be versitile enough to be used on business cards, a website and labels for a variety of lotion formulas.
I also need to be able to remove or add the word "spa" from the logo.
Each of the 5 elements CAN be used in the logo but it is not a requirement.
Here are a couple of ideas-
1) a sqare or rectangle in the background, divided into 4, with fire, earth, water and wood represented. And the #5 in the foreground with a metalic finish to represent metal.
2) somehow using a tree with roots to represent the letter "L" in elements, placing the #5 creatively.
Aside from that, I look forward to your creativity!!!!
Logo should be vector, preferably in Adobe Illustrator format.
