I want a logo (text and a mark) that will act as my brand. I'm the media maestro. There's an obvious suggestion of music but it needs to be balanced with video. I always tell people that sound is 60% at least of any good video. A maestro (the wand) is someone who leads, communicates the big picture.
It should also denote some element of fun (although the audience will be corporate to some extent, I think it will be young - 20-35 is my guess) and of course, creativity.
The elements I work with are editing systems, lights (very important to television), cameras, sound, graphics, animation, text. However, I don't want this to be busy. It needs to be fun and elegant (the high quality aspect) and colorful. And it must work for television (not too linear - usually a 9X16 format).
If you go to http://www.youtube.com/presentergold, you'll see an example of video I'm producing for my other company, Presentations Inc. (it's a corporate audience, so not as "fun" as themediamaestro audience).
I have not designed anything else yet so this will stand as the key around which everything else will be built.
