Logo types to explore
**NEW DESIGN BRIEF**. The original first Brief will be in lower case letters. The NEW BRIEF #2 will be in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. For designers just coming to this Contest, feel free to design to both Briefs, but I am wanting to now see some new designs listed in the #2 BRIEF. I Do Want: *A logo that has a 3D look and feel to it. Or at least has dimension and weight to the design. Needs to look good with three or four colors, and also in just one color. SAME FOR BRIEF #2. *Like the logo to contain the business name obviously, but also possibly a graphic that could stand alone. Maybe above, or beside the name. #2 - NOW LOOKING FOR AN EMBLEM STYLE LOGO THAT CONTAINS BOTH NAME AND GRAPHIC IN A PICTORIAL ELEMENT OR SHAPE. *A2 to be more dominate than the words Realty Group. Unless they are together under a graphical element. #2 - THE A2 DOES NOT NEED TO BE LARGER THAN THE BUSINESS NAME. REDUCE THE VISUAL EMPHASIS ON THE A2. *Please no Clip Art of Houses, Roof Tops, Windows, and other generic items. Looking for more of an original, artistic, stylistic, abstract logo of something representing real estate. SAME FOR BRIEF #2. WOULD ADD THAT THE DESIGN CAN HAVE AN ILLUSTRATIVE FEEL TO IT. *Like the idea of incorporating a very subtle, abstract Camera Lens shape/element to the design. Possibly as the background of the A2, or the graphic I mentioned above. Must be subtle, don't want the lens to be thick in weight or be super obvious, as that is NOT the main function of this business. Selling real estate is the focus. No aperture leaf designs, just looking for a subtle round shape of lens, possible glass element. SAME IN #2. BUT NOW I AM ADDING NEW "ENVIRONMENTAL" ELEMENTS TO POSSIBLY ENHANCE THE DESIGN. BECAUSE I LIVE AND WORK IN THE SEATTLE AREA, YOU CAN ADD ONE, OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS TO YOUR DESIGN. DO NOT NEED TO ADD ALL OF THEM, BUT PROBABALY A FEW OF THEM: -MOUNTAINS, SNOW CAPPED OR NOT. -SUN OR MOON PEAKING OVER MOUNTAIN RANGE. POSSIBLE RAY OF LIGHT COMING FROM SUN OVER MOUNTAINS. -EVERGREEN LOOKING TREES -LAKE OR RIVER -WATERFALL -MULTIPLE ROOF TOPS IN THE DISTANCE. LIKE SEEING A NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE DISTANCE. JUST A "POSSIBLE" DESIGN SUGGESTION: I SEE A EMBLEM STYLE LOGO, USING A CAMERA LENS AS THE LARGE, ROUND MAIN SHAPE OF THE EMBLEM. OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. CAN BE ROUND, BUT OTHER SHAPES CAN BE ADDED. WITHIN THAT LENS IS A ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE THAT POSSIBLY SHOWS A LONG RANGE VIEW OF SOME HOUSES AND/OR ROOF TOPS, SURROUNDED BY TREES, WITH SOME WATER POSSIBLY NEARBY (NOT REQUIRED). FOLLOWED BY A MOUNTAIN RANGE IN THE BACKGROUND, WITH A SUN OR MOON JUST COMING UP OVER THE MOUNTAINS. PICTURE YOURSELF STANDING ON A RIDGE SOMEWHERE AND SEEING THAT SCENE IN THE DISTANCE. THIS VISUAL IS ALL INSIDE THE LENS. THE BUSINESS NAME NEEDS TO SURROUND THE LENS, OR PLACED IN A BANNER ACROSS THE LENS, OR THE BOTTOM OF LENS. OR WHATEVER LOOKS BEST TO YOU. AGAIN, THAT IS JUST "ONE IDEA". FEEL FREE TO COME UP WITH YOUR OWN VISION. ALL THOSE ELEMENTS REPRESENT SEATTLE AND WASHINGTON STATE, WHERE PEOPLE BUY THE HOMES WE ARE SELLING. MY NEW POINT IS, I DONT NECESSARLY WANT THE LOGO TO BE ALL ABOUT A BIG PICTURE/DESIGN OF A HOUSE, OR MULTIPLE HOUSES. THE HOUSES NOW CAN BE A SMALL PART OF THE OVERALL SCENE. NOT THE ABSOLUTE MAIN FOCUS, LIKE WE ARE SEEING IN MOST DESIGNS TO THIS POINT. SEND ME PRIVATE MESSAGES IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. *The possible lens element does not have to be a full, round circle. Maybe just 3/4's, as it incorporates with the words. Or maybe it is the full circle, creating a round graphical element/symbol. Whatever you think looks best. *Red is the primary color. NOT burgundy or maroon. *Still want to convey a luxury/classy product. I Do Not Want: *Anything that looks like clip art houses, roof tops, doors, windows, etc. If I wanted that, I could design the logo myself. I am looking for your skill and creativity to make this logo stand out from most real estate logos. So many of them all look the same, or variations of each other. *NO clip art camera lenses, etc. Must be a very subtle, original element to the logo. *No thin line fonts. This logo will appear on For Sale signs, etc., and needs to be readable and recognizable when people are driving by a home. SAME FOR BRIEF #2. FINAL NOTES: *Please show me logo on a White background to start. After I narrow down the entries, I'll want to also see some final entries on a Black and Red backgrounds. *If the design gets too busy or crowded, I may eliminate the "slogan" I have included in this brief. *If I find more logo examples to upload, I will notify you. *Do not copy the logos I uploaded. I like different parts of each logo, but there is not one that is the perfect choice. I am not looking for you to duplicate exactly how they designed their logos. *To recap, when you look at finished logo, I want there to be a subtle element of real estate......and a VERY subtle element of video/photography. I'm guessing maybe a camera lens. But.... *.....if you have a better, more creative, more out-of-the-box idea for this logo, I'd LOVE to see it. Bonus points for original ideas, and it's OK to be a little different from this brief!! I'm open to it. ADDITIONAL NOTES on 09/30/14: * It is a Capital A and the number 2. Together, as in: A2 Thank you in advance!!
