The logo should be a play on the words, rather than the words and then a separate icon/avatar.
What I was thinking, personally, is that the word G R W T H should have some sort of effect/animation within the letter 'W' which symbolizes growth/growing, for example (just an example and not necessarily what I want to see in the logo, please be creative) if each point on either side of the W were to be arrows pointing upwards as if on a growth chart etc. Yet again, just an idea to illustrate the type of concept I'm chasing.
The background colour of the logo was mentioned in the previous page where 99designs asked for colours. ffd92a as the background, the font to be black.
Font I'm considering would be something similar to GERMANIA BOLD font. Something classy and simple. See the BALENCIAGA logo and ALEXANDER WANG for other examples of similar style fonts that look great. The word G R W T H should have spacing between letters, as it is written, please adjust spacing distance as you see fit/what looks best.
Lastly, please do your research on the brands that I have mentioned, as well as every ounce of detail included here. Simply taking the concept of the points on the W literally and proceeding to submit a half-assed logo will be a waste of both yours and my own time. Please take your time to produce something you are artistically proud of and can say you truly worked hard to provide value, and of course in doing this you will be paid in full dividends by securing my preferred choice in the job. Win-win.
