I am a web designer looking after http://www.kingsfordcross.com. Normally my clients provide me with a logo and I work off that but this time they don't have a logo so I need some creative designs for the logo as I just don't have the time right now to do create it. I have done some initial work which can be used or thrown out if think it's rubbish. I don't mind :)
Kingsford Cross is a new build apartment complex. High end big apartments and town houses. The apartments will have very high specification interiors and targetted at single professionals, business people flying in from England on a regular basis, airline pilots & cabin crew and definitely young married couples looking for a first home. The key word to describe the apartment complex is quality.
In 1932 a guy called William Kingsford-Smith made the first east west transatlantic flight from Portmarnock, Ireland to Newfoundland in Canada. His aeroplane was called the Southern Cross. Hence the name of the complex - Kingsford Cross. Portmarnock is on the coast and is an affluent suburban area beside the sea about 10 miles north of the capital and close to the country's biggest airport.
If you visit http://www.kingsfordcross.com/logo.htm you'll see some fonts I like and some initial attempts I made to create a logo. There could be a problem with the website in the next day or so which is being fixed if you can't access the link above try this one: http://220.127.116.11/~gemst49/logo.htm.
This should give some idea as to what I'm looking for - only a bit classier. You can use other fonts if you like but see below for a note... Abstract or cutouts or background images of the aerolane will also be considered but I'd like to keep the basic shape of the real aeroplane if possible.
In terms of colour I have no preference. I personally favour Gold, Green and Light Blue but I'm not bothered that much. This is new apartment complex and it's a green field site so go nuts but keep quality and class as the theme - the cheapest apartment will be about $500,000 so imagine seeing your logo on the gate of the complex as you drive up... it's got to reflect the class of the complex.
The logo MUST work in both Black and White and Colour and I'd like high resolution files in TIFF, JPG and GIF if possible for both black and white and colour versions for PRINT media and WEB media. If you choose to use a font that I don't already have then you must also be able to send me the font for further use on the website and print media.
