We received a lot of similar looking designs already, might want to mix it up a bit and use different elements/designs. Right now many look very much alike: focusing on putting a ship in the logo with an outside boarder in the shape of a diamond. While we do like some of the designs, we really would love to see a broader variety as we think the theme of our logo embodies much more then just adding a sailboat to a hipster logo.
Some more Information:
We are the pirates of the Venture world. We life by the motto of Steve Jobs: "Why join the Navy if you can be a pirate ?"
We are a young and hip team and want to create the coolest and most badass Venture Capital & Company Builder out there. So we need a logo that reflects our spirit and vision: young,fresh,cool,hipster,stylish and bold. Something we can build our brand around. Maybe something old-school / hipster like?
A cool,clean and hip logo that you wouldn't mind rocking on a snapback or shirt even when you are outside the office. Something you might not expect to be the logo of a Investment company. Maybe something that reminds you more of a lifestyle brand then a company. Because that is what we want to embody - a way of life & thinking.
PS: Might not focus too much on skulls & bones. For example: logo could be something old-school / hipster-like
