Hi, I'm a travel, fine art and commercial photographer. I'm redoing my web site and the last piece of the design will be a reworking of my "name logo". Here's the tricky/challenging part. I am marketing myself to ad agencies and fine art photo collectors and do NOT want to come off as a "business/corporation", but rather as an artist. So that means that my "logo" needs to look non-logo like. In other words I do not want anything that looks like a traditional logo - no extra "things" in the design. Stars, suns, eyes, cameras, etc., I just want a new take on the 3 words: Lorne Resnick Photography. Something interesting with font/color. I want to key on the concept of "artist" and "creativity". My name is unisex, but I'm a male, so I don't want anything to "flowery". I do want the name to look "strong". I want something super creative - but now wildly distracting , so that the only thing your eye keeps going to when you look at the site.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
this logo will mainly be for my website, but I may use it for identity letterhead down the road.
For now, since it must fit into the color scheme on my website here's what I need:
Final size it must "read" at is: 500 pixels wide by 57 pixels high. That's the aspect ratio and space you have to work with. You can see what my name logo looks like now on my website.
It must "fit" into my website. the background color on my website is hex value 222222, so the background for the logo must be the same.
