I need a logo for my commercial photography business.
Looking for a standalone logo that can be eventually placed on to business cards and watermarking on images. I would like it to be relatively minimal without too much flair. In fact, it should be pretty ‘commercial’ and straight to business feeling..but with an edge to it. Bold, but not too much in-your-face.
Although I specialize in sports portraiture and commercial photography, I don’t think there should be a need for sports theme at all. That goes the same with camera icons incorporated into the logo – if it’s something subtle then maybe I’ll like it. Otherwise, keeping it simple to my brand would be best.
No ‘handwriting’ or script type font.
The AC is capitalized. There should be some sort of separation between AC and HAWK.
The HAWK should be capitalized but I’m game to see it in other forms. All of it is a part of my name.
If there is a ‘hawk’ image incorporated into it – I would think that a simple silhouette or inverse image would work better than anything with too much detail onto it.
Also thinking that the image would be able to fit in a square or a portrait oriented rectangular shape. – not too tall though.
Icons that I seem to drawn towards include: DC shoes, RVCA, United Nude, MoMA,
Would also need as a file version with a transparent background so I can paste it onto images via Photoshop. Bonus if image works well when opacity is lowered down a bit for image watermarking.
I’m thinking of simple black and white or use of grayscale colour scheme. IF there is an accent colour – I would pick something bright like orange but used very sparingly.
I look forward to seeing some wicked designs.
