I am launching a new business & my new life as THE LIFE RECONSTRUCTIONIST. I've been a construction litigator for many years & now want to live my purpose & make a difference in the world.
As an only child, after my mother's death from Alzheimer's it felt as though the rug had been pulled out from under me. This major life event became an opportunity to recreate my life & relationships while learning about compassion & gratitude - and got through it with an unfailing sense of humor. I want to guide others through that process; having them see that it is during darkest times the greatest growth and possibilities await. My tagline may be "navigating life's difficulties with a dollop of compassion and a wallop of humor." I'm a combination of strength, compassion, safety and funny and I LOVE LIFE!
For a sense of my "voice" to to: http://lostmymomburiedmymind.blogsp…chive.html
People who inherently have a positive outlook and love of life, but who have recently gone through a major life transition/difficulty and want to regain a toe-hold on their lives and come out the other side with a greater love of themselves and their lives - to reconstruct what felt like it was torn away.
I want a logo to represent my speaking/coaching/life design brand - THE LIFE RECONSTRUCTIONIST
Some of the images I've been toying with are an acorn (possibility of new life, breaking through hardness into the magnificence of an oak tree - plus my Mom' nickname for me). I love this image: http://island11.files.wordpress.com…crets3.jpg
But I'm open to a great, unique idea that really captures me, my message and attracts the clients I'm targeting.
A few things to think about:
1. No Cartoons - not cheap, childish
2. Elegant but not cold
3. Warmth, joy, smoothing BUT NOT DULL zzzzz
I'm more interested in a logo, but offer this if it helps. I can always use thee colors on the website if I have a logo I love that work. Here is an example of the feel/colors I like:
Here is an example of what I definitely do not like:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Would prefer no stock images or clip art in the logo.
