I am not afraid of something extremely simple, in fact would welcome it.
**What I really need is an icon, since I know I want to use a simple, sans serif font for my name. It's the symbol that I need your help with. No cameras, film strips or eyes, please!
beware of this! here's a funny observation of the cliche of photographers' logos:
A few fonts that I would like to AVOID, please:
designs and identities that I like:
sarahrhoads.com (for innovation, boldness, & use of Helvetica)
http://www.jeremylawsonphotography.com/blog.cfm -- I love the bold, high-contrast look of his identity. It's a little too rock-and-roll for me somehow, but it made me stop in my tracks the first time I saw it.
styles that don't work for me:
frilly, girly, cutesy, emo/etsy-ish looking
things that look like scrapbook pages
no pink or Tiffany blue
favorite logos of colleagues are attached
You can see my current logo and style of photography at:
Thanks for taking time to read this -- I can't wait to see your designs!
