Chanel "C's" Logo
One idea is to go for the "luxury brand" look and, so far, we like the subtle effect of using the name with a symbol, perhaps a sans-serif text with a symbol above, though open to ideas!
For the symbol we have considered: a lyre, other music instruments, anything musical, a songbrid, a flower and so on, but we also like abstract ideas/patterns. A logo that we love is the Patek Philippe logo. The ornate symbol with the tidy writing really appeals to us. We could use Pembridge Music, or Pembridge Music, London, for the text below.
We want a logo that can fit with the text but is also recognisable on its own. It must therefore be distinctive and easily recognisable.
We are not the experts and so are open to other ideas/angles.
