I am a very strong individual, mentally and physically. I believe things should be done right the first time. That's why I need your help. I know you are all professionals and I will leave my blog logo in the hands of pros.
My target audience are males in their teens to late 20's. Therefore, my logo should reflect an mature, but active audience. I provide helpful articles to those wishing to use boxing seriously as a workout routine. I have a synthesis writing style that aims to provoke thinking and motivation. Being a boxing blog, I need a logo that is active like my audience. Professionalism is what I am about and I want to lead my audience by example.
Being a former web designer, I understand the importance of artistic freedom but there are a few things I'd like you to consider. I would like a logo to be professional and clean. This blog will last for years and timeless designs are more than welcomed.
My blog is located http://southpawslugger.com/ and you can see the current theme. The graphics that are currently on the blog do their best to look professional. I would like a logo that matches my current theme's but it is not a big deal. The logo is the brand image and I can adjust my theme around it.
The logo must be done in vector. Sorry, no raster designs will be accepted. Just letting you know. I want to be able to resize the logo in the future if I choose to change themes.
No ".com" in the logo please.
In summary, keep it professional, clean, active, and in vector. You know what I am about and what the site is about. Use your artistic freedom to bring my blog to life. Don't forget, be creative. Thank you to all!
