Hi there! I'm Joe, a photographer from Ireland, and I'm rebranding my photography business. I shoot weddings and art/design work, and my clients tend to be young, creative people who are passionate about whatever they are doing, whether it's their wedding day, or their next big design project, and they are always very in the know when it comes to current design trends etc. I'd really like a logo that is a fusion of clean, modern design styles, with a natural theme, contrasting modern/geometric design with an organic subject matter. I love adventures and the outdoors, and my clients tend to move very easily between the modern tech/urban space and the natural world.
Don't worry to much about incorporating the name into the logo, the idea would be that the image/logo could become a brand that doesn't need written text, as every photographer has basically the same company name!
What I really want is an image that could stand alone on a print in your super-hipster living room! To sum up, I love line drawings, symmetry, nature, animals (I'm a fan of geometric animal heads, though no stags please!), mountains, foxes, and anything that has a sense of balance to it.
Hope that word salad helps!
