FIRST: We are NOT looking for a *new* logo, just a polish/refresh/improvement on the current design. Particularly the "Neil" script (it is my wife’s signature) and the art deco font for "Benton" are elements that should be maintained. (The current design has issues which you can see more clearly below on the sponsorship example image). The important things are the new event materials, however we do not want the current logo (with it's problems) carrying over onto large display pieces. Bottomline: Your work on the logo should be minor/easy.
We want to convey our brand and services... We generally use the categories of Insurance, Risk Management, and Consulting for our services... Our slogan is "Protecting Creators (SM)"... We like the purple... You can learn more about us at our website (neilbenton.com).
I have attached some files and images below that we currently use. We particularly like the purple production shot as it goes with our brand color. The word cloud is something we put together a while back for the back of some thank you cards. Does a good job of capturing a lot of what we do. We'd be happy to have this worked into one of the designs.
The table cloth design should take advantage of the three dimensions once draped, I've included an example below. Draped dimensions given as: 30" L x 72" W x 28" H
Thank you for helping with this project! We’re looking forward to seeing what comes back, and are hoping to establish a relationship with a designer we can work with for future needs!
