UPDATED BELOW. Please read all the way through:
This is a heart-centered energy business. We want to project that in our logo. We have some general ideas of what we might be looking for. We would like to see what creative ideas you come up with, and work together to find that perfect expression of our business.
We are a heart-centered energy business helping people to facilitate self-healing and connecting with their heart center. This helps to open the intuition, so that people can heal themselves, flow their lives, and discover their true voice and purpose. The colors of the logo are very important to us. The logo should contain green, pink, and purple. Other colors are optional.
The heart charka is the central chakra located between the lower and the upper chakras, it is the midpoint, and the energy work we do helps facilitate the opening and flow of energy between the lower and upper chakras. The heart chakra symbol contains a circle with 12 lotus petals around it. Any variation or representation of this should take that into consideration, ie., should have 12 petals or rays or however you choose to represent that. it can be 6 with 6 in between as well. If using a half-circle, for example, then the 12 petals, though not all included, should still be represented. see visual examples.
The colors we have chosen represent:
Green - The heart chakra
Pink - The higher heart chakra
Purple – Third eye/crown charka - Intuition
White space can be used as well, this represents the crown chakra
Black or shades of grey can be tastefully included as well
Teal can be used as a small accent as well
We would like the logo to represent the movement from the heart to the higher heart chakra, as well as the balance of energy between the two. The green represents the masculine aspects of the heart. The pink represents the feminine. This can then flow into the purple, as the intuition begins to open once the heart centered energy begins to clear and open up. So the flow should be from green to pink to purple, or purple to pink to green.
We would like to see some designs using script lettering, but it should be fairly simple script. Not too flowy. We’d like to see example of all three colors used in the lettering as well. Higher – Green, Heart – Pink, Center – Purple, or Higher – Purple, Heart – Pink, Center – Green. If using one color for the lettering, we would like it to be purple. Black or shades of grey may also be used.
We would like to see some watercolor or brushstrokes ideas as well.
We would like at some point to be able to use “HHC” as an acronym, so if the first letters could be “highlighted” in some way, we’d love to see ideas for that.
We would also like the logo to be flexible enough to where we can easily replace “Center” with other words, such as “Reiki” or Crystals” or “Yoga” etc., as in “Higher Heart Reiki” or “Higher Heart Crystals”. We’re not asking for those versions in this contest, just for the flexibility of this logo to reflect the ability to do this in the future.
We will include some quick sketches of ideas we’ve had, and are also including some pictures of crystals that represent the energy we are looking for.
We do love seeing your comments about the inspiration and thought that goes into your designs as well. We greatly appreciate the thought, effort, creativity, and particularly the energy you are putting into this for us. Thank you for your efforts!
