Hello! I'm an acupuncturist and massage therapist looking to brand a new business model that focuses on athletes: "Athlete Repair Service." My staff will include others in alternative medicine such as Shiatsu, possibly sports nutrition, other forms of bodywork.
Athlete Repair Service
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Looking first for a logo that can be applied to all media (cards, web -.Mac, letterhead).
I generally like simpler fonts but am open to others. I want to create a strong, clean, professional look so no fonts like Mistral please.
The logo itself can be more fun or abstract, figurative or not. My personality and bedside manner is very fun (see: thepindoctorshow.com). Our new office is in a funky converted garage turned loft. So, something unusual is fine.
I like bold contrasting colors. Eye catching, like soccer and cycling clothes. Red and Blue seems to be in my mind. But I also like orange shades with red. We have a theme of a checker pattern that we have used on our wall (deep red and copper--based on a Japanese screen)
Interested in branding the whole package so I'd be open to working with winning designer for more than logo.
- Item 1...
- Logo should feature the words: Athlete Repair Service; perhaps a version with Athlete Repair Service.com. Would be great if the logo could stand alone as well (without text) but that is secondary.
- As mentioned above, bold colors, I especially like the visual contrast of royal blue and red. Sporty like soccer/cycling clothes, yet simple. Nothing too intricate.
- I mentioned a checkered pattern but please don't feel stuck on that idea. Dots, stripes, chevrons, or none of these...
Wacky, hard to read fonts like Mistral, etc.
We're an edgy business of alternative medicine working with half-crazy athletes, so nothing that says safe suburban healthcare. I think many designs with athletic figures in silouette have this feel. We do not want that.
