Go to our website to see what we are trying to achieve. http://www.monumentphoto.com
We want the logo to say we are a high end, service based studio.
We would like one element of the logo to be usable for our prints such as a signature stamp on the bottom corner of each of our prints but not the entire logo. This is so there is brand continuity between the website, business cards and final prints. Maybe our company initials or other ways to do this.
We like earth tones generally but am open to ideas as long as they match our site well.
For our audience we do not want lace, flowery, or cartoon logos.
We like aspect ratios that are more rectangular and not as square because we think they may look better on the website but play around with it.
We are looking for all vector artwork as a file that we can use in a variety of manners. Illustrator files are fine as .eps or .ai No PSDs.
Monument Photography's name started out because we loved Monument Valley Utah, so don't think of Monument as a statue. We are open to any ideas but don't feel like you need to include any element of "monuments" in the design it is simply not needed.
Be free to experiment and think outside the box, we are all about fun in this industry!
