Please be creative with your own ideas. Here are some thoughts to help lead you in the direction I wish to go in, some of which I've already expressed above.
When I look at some of the big dogs I'm running with like waterford.com, lenox.com, sawarovski.com, preciosa.com and crystalclassics.com, I don't see big flashy logos but simple, elegant and professional logos. I would like to stay closer to that kind of logo but still want to be open to all ideas.
The Logo should read;
All Things Crystal
The initials capitalized and my first thoughts are to make the word crystal darker or stand out some how. But still open to all suggestions.
I'm changing the colors on the site from what I have now to a radiant purple theme with shades of pinks and blues and all the other colors that a crystal reflects through its many facets, but the primary color is purple.
I would like some symbol to be apart of the logo but have no clue or ideas there. Swarovski has a swan, Waterford has a sea horse, Lenox has some kind of royal leaf thing. I need your help here.
The font I will leave up to you but I see a professional elegant and graceful font in both italic's and straight lettering but please don't just stick to that.
All I can think of next is to talk is about background. I would like to see two variations, one with white and the other of course a radiant purple.
