Ok, this is where it gets interesting. I want to make sure that my logo doesn't scare off individuals that have limited experience with firearms. In fact, those are the individuals that I want to target. It should be attractive to 21-45 year olds, and be female friendly (but not pink and frilly). I offer my courses free of charge to victims of sexual assault, domestic abuse, and other violent crimes, so it is very important that the logo is not threatening.
I do need a business card as well, so if I choose your design, and we work well together, there could be an extra $100 for a business card design. I will also be looking for a website design that would be an extra $500. That being said, please focus on the logo for this contest.
Other than that, let's see what you come up with. I will be checking and posting feedback daily (often multiple times a day). Please feel free to resubmit with changes after reviewing my comments. I'm very excited to see your ideas!
