I am undecided whether just Winston should be the logo, or the full firm name. I am leaning in the direction of just using the word Winston.
Accounting & Financial

People work hard their entire lives and save - yet for the savings to be meaningful - they must be invested wisely and responsibly. We all know people who should be retired but must continue to work. We do our jobs at Winston Capital Partners with energy, discipline, integrity and instinct - so that those who invest with us enjoy a solid return, and can plan the future accordingly. We've always tried to stay sane while others go crazy. That is a competitive advantage. -Charlie Munger 2013 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting We don't have an edge in a lot of ways, but we do have an edge in not getting caught up in what others are doing. -Warren Buffet 2013 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meaning
Logo types to explore
The Winston name is my family name, but it is also a well recognized consumer brand. It's use in a financial application is somewhat new. Other applications have included Harry Winston Diamonds, Winston Cigarettes, the Winston 500 NASCAR race. Winston Churchill the English prime minister may also come to mind. So, there is a very Anglo connotation to the name. It's hard to know whether I want a san serif sleek Winston logo, or something more 19th century British Empire (serif font - wooden ships and mystique). The main idea is that this new Winston financial brand should be editorial - bearing the brand impressions of the past in mind - and making more or less use of those images as the designer sees fit (the key is to consider them even if totally disregarded later). We want to suggest the modern skill set of investing paired with the stodgy conservatism of a different age. The logo has a job to do. If it does its job right, the customer sees the image - and all dialogue begins on the right emotional footing. The logo says, you can trust me, I know how this works out - and I'm here to help you with it - but without being touchy feeley. We represent something finer in the hedge fund industry. I'm not trying to sell images of fly fishing in one's golden years, but neither am I trying to project an image that behind closed doors the hedge fund looks like the movie tron. We are young firm with an old brand - modern skills paired with ancient wisdom. All of these comments may not be specifically relevant to the design - but it's what's in my head. Feel free to check out my linked in profile to get a sense of the person behind the company. Thanks! (also, there are have been a lot of giant versions of the letter 'W' so far. Please stay away from this, we're looking for an abstract object and then the word Winston, and or Winston Capital Partners, LP) Thanks!!
