I have attached 2 rough designs I would like you to base this off of. I would like you to create something similar, but that does not look so basic and dated.
I would like the text to be in a sans font. The font should be easy to read with wider stance, heavier weight letters.
The logo needs to be black and white (no colors). It needs to look good on a light and dark background.
I would like the text displayed left aligned and stacked one word over the other (like in the attached designs).
I would like circles and lines forming an L shape around the text to show how referrals work.
The logo should look balanced and clean.
Not busy and abstract.
I will give priority to those who have been creative by taking my dot and line concept for the icon and turning it into something more modern.
I am looking to demonstrate how referrals work - it starts with you meeting 1 client, they send a friend your way and that friend has to potential to refer another client. I was to illustrate the power of a referral network.
For example, you could make the circles look like gears, or just the center of the circles. You could use a chain or link design in place of dots and circles.
