I have just uploaded a mock up that I roughly made quick. I also uploaded one with notes pointing out the things I like about the design.
This is not a end all, be all design but I think it portrays the direction I want to go with this much better than normal comments.
1. The font. I want a bold strong font. Something that portrays durability but is also easy to read, lower case (besides first letter) and more classic/traditional Not modern. "chair" and the chair legs should be an off black and the "up" and Exclamation pt (chair seat & back) should be a darker red but lighter than burgundy. What I put is pretty good but it can be better, think of it as inspiration.
2. Chair. Please try and put shadowing as I've noticed it make it look much better. Within the chair and on the floor is best for now. But one of the biggest problems I think I am having is seeing the exclamation point vs. the chair. It is not the easiest to distinguish so please keep that in mind to make it as obvious as possible to see "!" without sacrificing the chair design.
3. Formation. Although I don't love the idea it allows us to use a bigger chair/exclamation point if we put "Up" under "chair" and make the exclamation pt/chair the size of both lines. Since it is really is the centerpiece and should make it easier to distinguish if it is bigger.
Please let me know if you have any questions! I want to try and finish this up within 5 days. Thank you so much for your patience and hard work, you are all very very talented!!
We want a typeface logo that says “Chair Up !” and the exclamation point “!” looks like a chair (see pics attached.) Very similar to what stubb hub does in their logo except instead of a ticket, we want a chair.
The font of Chair Up should be something simple with a sturdy and Bold strong structure similar to Quora, LinkedIn, and Open table.. We would like a dark red, A little lighter than burgundy similar to Quora’s red. (See attached)
Since the name of our company is a play on Cheer up, if you can get creative and add something like a smile under the words or somewhere in the logo it would be a bonus but we really don’t want something cheesy or too much going on so its not a necessity. You could for example put the “U” of “Up” under the word chair and make it the smile though. Also would consider making the “h” from Chair up in the shape of a side-view chair and scrapping the other ideas if it can be done nicely.
