We're looking for a logo to use on our website and materials for a company called Uncharted Investing.
We're looking for something professional since we are in the finance industry and customers will trust us to invest their money. It should appear interesting, smart, and modern to younger investors (like a startup) but very important that it's also professional, trustworthy, confident, and experienced to older investors (like a bank). Overall, it should lean more heavily towards a bank than a startup.
We'd like to naturally "fit in" with the existing Finance industry but also "stand out" as a slightly more modern company than our competitors. We want something mostly clean and simple, with more emphasis on the words "Uncharted Investing" than on additional icons / graphics that accompany the words.
Please don't hesitate to message us with any questions - we're here to help you create a great logo!
UPDATE: If you're including a graphic, I think we prefer to have it placed to the left of the text or integrated into the text, rather than placed on top of the text.
