I need a logo for my new online print company PrintChimp.com. The logo needs to be hip and friendly. The logo must have a full body character of a chimp and in the future that same character will need to be drawn in multiple positions ie holding a sign, working a printing press etc...
Logo must be made in Adobe Illustrator.
All aspects of the logo should be original and not recomposed stockart/clipart.
The .com portion of the logo should be greatly minimized and not to distract from PrintChimp. The logo should look great with or without the .com wording since I may eliminate the .com portion at times from the logo.
PrintChimp should be written as one word.
The logo must also look great if the chimp character is broken out leaving just the text PrintChimp by itself.
I would prefer if the chimp character had a 3 dimensional quality, however I am not limiting it at that if a 2d version is executed very well.
I have attached in a zip file with multiple drawings that I found well done. There is also a folder of printer pressman that you can use as reference as to what (traditional) pressman wear ie flat cap, apron, blue jeans etc... for the chimp character.
Also here are 2 links to sites that have logos that I really like.
