Second time working with Dmitry, and just when I thought he couldn't any better, he wow'd me again. I said it before, I'll say it again:
THE BEST DESIGNER ON THIS PLATFORM. PERIOD. Hire him already!
How Joshua D. Rogers started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
What’s your company slogan?
No slogan, but we do want to incorporate a treatment of our initials: J & L. Will upload.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is a crest for our family and for use on letterpress invites, note cards, etc.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We want to incorporate the following symbols into our crest. We picked symbols we think will work, but open to suggestions. Want it to be as simple as possible, few lines. limited detail, etc. so it's easy to replicate on letterpress, napkins, other treatments, etc. See Parliament logo for example:
DO NOT BE LIMITED TO THE SYMBOLS WE ARE INITIALLY THINKING OF. IF YOU HAVE CREATIVE SYMBOLS THAT CAN REPRESENT THE BELOW VALUES, PLEASE COME UP WITH NEW IDEAS!!!!
- Wisdom (owl head like attached...main image, should be largest with the others maybe contained w/in the head like an old crest)
- Pursuit of learning (open book....)
- Love of art (paintbrush...)
- Service to others (hand with heart in middle...)
- Perseverance (ox head...)
- Determination (geranium...)
- Travel (compass...)
Attached are two VERY crude sample sketches too. Sample #1 has elements separated, while #2 combines some of them (art & learning, ox and geranium) which might be cleaner. Again, open to options for a classic, timeless, simple yet sophisticated design.
