I do not want a camera incorporated, as I feel this has been overdone in the industry!
Update: I've received a lot of submissions with animals (especially birds) and I didn't realize until running the contest that these don't really speak to me. They are beautiful, but I don't know that the animals represent my business well. Thank you for your efforts!!
My vision for the name is to have the word mini be smaller than the word mama. For the logo, I'd love to explore different geometric and minimalist designs that incorporate children. One vision I had was to take a circle shape and have it be 4 different pie pieces, each one being a different color/representation of a child of a different ethnicity, since I feel very strongly about inclusion and loving all children and families. But it's important to note that I'm not a designer and not sold on this idea exclusively, so I would love to see your interpretation and vision, even if it incorporates something other than children!
The attached files are meant for inspiration to give a sense of the style I like. I love the colors/shapes of the Colibri logo, but do feel it's too busy/not minimalist enough for what I'm looking for. The Wise Wale logo really gives a sense of the minimalist/fun/geometric feel I'm hoping for. The 4 children and diversity & inclusion symposium are also a good feel for the type of design I'm looking for. The other images are attached as some color inspiration. I really love bright/bold colors! Really don't want anything watercolor/gradient, it's been really overplayed in the photography industry.
I'm back and forth on incorporating the slogan, it's not a *must* for me. I do like that it helps to explain to potential clients what I do and why my name incorporates "mini" in it, but depending on how it fits with the design, it's not 100% necessary.
I appreciate your hard work more than you know. I wish I could make my vision come to life, but I know how important it is to seek out the experts when my skills aren't enough! Thank you!!
