I am launching two new websites and need final logos ASAP. Professionally I work a bit in Adobe Illustrator but I'm not a skilled designer. I've come up with some VERY ROUGH ideas (seen here). Ideally I'd like to find someone who can give these ideas more unity, smarter color (maybe some gradient), & greater life/depth........&/or......start over from scratch. These two sites will co-exist with each other SO the logos should carry similar visual themes - they should look like sister-sites. This is one project NOT two.
I like bold and bright colors and text BUT also appreciate simplicity. The taglines are important to me. I know they make the logos more crowded but they carry important messages. The fonts I've used so far are Heavitas and a 2 Futura fonts. I'm not married to these fonts, they're just what I thought looked okay for these very rough drafts.
I am a small one man show and am on a fairly small budget - hence my decision to post on CL. Please consider this when bidding the project. I totally expect to pay someone $30+ per hour for real time design work. I'm not looking for a handout, just and excellent VALUE.
I need a logo I feel excellent about moving forward. What are your ideas? How can you make these logos look classy, iconic, and great? Please feel free to criticize what I have so far. Highly skilled and talented designers ONLY need apply. Please share your thoughts, in addition to sample work, contact information and a rough estimate of cost. Serious and skilled only need apply. I intend to make a hire today or tomorrow. Let's go!!
