Stress Free Start
I am a Developmental Therapist in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). I have 18 years experience in the field of infant massage therapy and parent edcuation. I am currently the Director of the Tender Touch program (touch therapy education for parents on how to touch/interact with their premature baby)in the NICU at a large hospital in Kansas City, MO. My company, Stress Free Start, has been started to increase awareness about the many negative effects of stress on a developing infant's brain, nervous system and relationship with their family. I also educate about how touch/massage help promote relaxation, nurturing, bonding and attachment and therefore, can help to cement the family bond and help prevent abuse and neglect.
Medical personnel who are working in either the Newborn Nursery (well babies) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU; medically fragile/premature babies). I also will be looking to market to educators who work in the field of preventing abuse and neglect and in parent education.
I am seeking a logo design that is somewhat "childish" or "kidlike" in nature; perhaps a cartoon or simple line drawing. I don't want it to be serious looking but rather, somewhat whimsical so that it appeals to people who work in the baby business. It can reflect a really relaxed baby and can include 2 parents or be a baby on its own. I am attaching an example of a logo done for a friend of mine through 99designs that is similiar to what I am looking for.
It should be something "soft" that will reflect the company goal of promoting bonding/attachment, nurturing touch and stress reduction.
I am also very open to creativity; my company is somewhat esoteric by nature so I am also looking for some direction creatively.
