Hello, I mentioned that I want blue or black in the logo. That would be good but it does not absolutely have to contain these colours. Overall I am not too stuck on colour but these are my preferred.
As for the design I would like to have a mascot character. He should be a formal gentleman type figure… think suit, hat, formally dressed kind of guy. He should also be"cute" or friendly looking, somewhat "cartoonie" is good. The main thing is that he is memorable and somehow gets people's attention and they remember the logo.
I have a large emphasis on friendly, courteous, and honest relations with my customers. Winning my customer's TRUST is of utmost IMPORTANCE in this business, since I am working in their homes. This is why I would like to go with the personal feel that a mascot figure in the logo provides.
HINT: Do an internet search for "trust facial features" You will get a lot of info on what type of mascot will convey trust and honesty.
The mascot could be in full body form, or it could be just a face. Anything from a simple graphic to more complex are all options.. silhouette type sketch ranging to detailed picture… just have to experiment.
My main audience is female home owners, many with young kids and pets. Also there are older people. The logo should also convey that I am a premium service, the best in town at what I do, somewhat upscale while still friendly.
UPDATE: I decided to make the contest blind since there was some copying going on. I would love to see some great original designs.
Thank- you for checking out my contest. I must honestly say I feel guilty that so many will put in the time and not get paid. I see so much God- given talent and ability around here that I am amazed and intrigued. There is no way I could ever do this myself. I hope that if you enter my contest that it will allow you to hone your skills, and first and foremost enjoy what you do so well!
