Industry: Child AND Elderly Care - serving only healthcare workers
Note: Soft, Easy-to-digest, Earthy and Whimsical, Feminine and Welcoming are all good ways to describe the color palette I'm looking for.
Brand is feminine so SLIGHT curves no sharp rigid corners or edges. Clean, modern but not trendy, timeless yet fun.
Connecting these individual family 'pods' to 'single actor' babysitters is the main focus that the logo needs to portray.
Letter V that is:
Idea #1: V connected by dots and lines
Idea #2: Solid V that portrays a connection or many connections
Swan that resembles a V in the body shape
.png file attached is a drawing my sister made for the icon. Using this as a starting point and iterating from there would be fantastic. The problem I have with this icon is that it is TOO curvy, the abstract fingers look too much like tentacles instead of a hand cupping the swinging baby, and it resembles a mother and 1 child - not connecting 'pods' to 'single actors'.
You DO NOT have to use this hand drawn icon as a basis for any abstract design, I'M OPEN TO ALL ABSTRACT DESIGNS, which includes anything that you come up with on your own given the description of the Village brand.
I'm open to any and all designs that consider the Village brand as described above, so please don't let my current ideas discourage you from creating something different and unique :)
