Seven did a great job of nailing down a great design right from the beginning. I had some minor adjustments made but the overall design really captured what I wanted in the brief. The communication and revision process was very easy. Keep an eye out for their designs in your contest. Highly recommended.
How CapBeacon started their logo design journey
I need a logo for a blog that will provide detailed commentary and analysis on the U.S. banking industry and capital markets. I will be creating custom content for finance/economics professionals and investors. You can see the blog and content at http://www.capitalbeacon.com The site may eventually tie into a bank consulting business. I will also be monetizing the site and want the logo to convey that of an expert in the field of banking and finance. Potential advertisers would be other financial services providers like investment banks, brokers, attorneys, etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a blog logo/header for http://www.capitalbeacon.com that will be incorporated into a WordPress theme. The logo should feature the site name "Capital Beacon" with the subtitle "Banks and Capital". I want the site to convey a sense that the content provides a path for 1.) banks to obtain funding/equity for their businesses and 2.) investors and other market participants to understand the economic factors affecting banks.
- Main title is "Captal Beacon"
- Subtitle "Banks and Capital"
- I am not too set on a color scheme but want something modern and "solid" (like you would expect from a company you would trust your investments with)
- In addtion to the blog, I would like to be able to incorporate it into other blog content like email newsletters and analysis
- Format: I don't know too much about formats but the guidelines advise asking for Vector format because it can be sized without losing quality. So that is what I will ask for!
- I do not want a traditional lighthouse incorporated. It could be a play on that but I lean toward something more modern or even futuristic. Think beams of light rather than what the beams are coming from.
