I've attached a file I've crudely manipulated with my mediocre skills into a tolerable but less than acceptable logo. Feel free to base your design off this file or to do something entirely different. That said, here's a few guidelines:
1. Two Bears are not teddy bears, bears drinking beer, or bears with tool belts and hammers. Nor are they aggressive bears ready to disembowel my clients. They are not Pepsi polar bears, cuddly baby bears, or even more cuddly baby panda bears. I'm more interested in brown bears or grizzly bears, with a demeanor you might find in their more-or-less graceful and natural state outside your door in Alaska (or watching late-night Discovery channel).
2. If there are bear representations, I'm tending toward silhouettes or line drawings as opposed to the photo-realistic end of the spectrum. The bears should not be facing one another UNLESS they are separated by text or graphics. Otherwise, it looks like Two Romantic Bears Remodeling. Lastly, if each bear is a different size and/or in a different position, then it looks better than simply mirrored or copied bear images
3. The design should look good with a white background (unlike attached), since this is the most likely color for business cards, letterhead and my box truck side panels.
4. The design should be no more than 3 times wider than its height.
5. The font should be readable from a distance. No overly elaborate script.
6. The logo must have "Two Bears Remodeling" somewhere in it. No need to mention location or services offered, etc.
7. Don't show a representation of houses, mountains, sun, trees, etc in the logo.
8. Make a logo for my target audience, not for trades people. Think wine with Asian fusion, not pizza and subs topped with sawdust.
