The logo will be primarily displayed on the web, but should work well in print too, possibly in mono.
The design should be modern and stylish, and not "Chintzy".
We quite like the idea of incorporating flowers of some sort. We have thought of Cherry Blossom, but also considered Day Lilly due to the symbolism. We are open to other suggestions.
The design should incorporate the name "Izzy's Mum", and possibly the web address http://www.izzysmum.co.uk (although it would be nice if this could be easily removed)
It would be nice if the picture-part of the logo would work (or could be extended to work) as a wallpaper on the edges of the site (possibly inverted). I'm not sure if I've made sense here - ask if you need more.
We like the following design as inspiration, in particular the colours, but are open to suggestions:
Please don't include any stock imagery or clipart.
I'm fairly flexible on file format. Would like a vector version for print, and a layered web format. Needs to be easily importable into Fireworks as that's what I use day to day.
