Also, for FB cover page, please be sure to consider Safe zone for both mobile and desktop version! Thanks.
UPDATES for finalists. PLEASE read!!
Already on FB and Twitter, so would love to get an idea how your logo design will be incorporated into my FB cover page and my Twitter header. Anything you can do to help me in this regard (e.g. screen shot of mock up, etc.) would be GREATLY appreciated and will help me choose the final design.
Please view my FB page and Twitter page and Like/Follow me to let me know that you have looked at my social media to see what I have attempted on my own and the aesthetic I am going for. Once you've done that, please message me here and let me know!
For the FB cover page, would love to see white logo on a real image of figs (faded in background). For FB cover page, I would like to see circular logo without slogan so that I can use full tagline separately in a horizontal format. I.e.
Lose the Weight | Find Yourself | Savor the Journey
Also, please subscribe to my blog. I would like to find someone that would follow my blog and work with me on an ongoing basis. :)
I would love it if I can get a WP blog header or home page image *instead of* the YouTube element (if possible/allowed). If so, please message me and let me know.
I am going to attach some more of the attempts I have made in the attachments section to give you ideas of what I'm looking for.
If all goes well, I may use the same designer to create a blog style guide for me. Please let me know if this is something you could do and/or something you have done before.
Please let me know the names of the fonts that you have used (including variants) and if they are free or if I would have to purchase them to use along with my logo.
I need a favicon too, so would love to know your ideas on a matching favicon for the logo before I make my final decision. I know that is not a deliverable for this contest, however.
Please give me some idea of how many variations you will include in the final deliverables. I am hoping for logo in black, white as well as *at least* one colored version. Also on a solid background (black backgroud, white background, colored background) in both a square/circle version.
Glow Fig | Lose the Weight... Find Yourself... Savor the Journey
Glow Fig | Lose the Weight... Savor the Journey
"Considering weight loss surgery? Inspiration and tools to lose the weight, find yourself, SAVOR the journey, and GLOW from the inside out!"
You can see more of what I like (style-wise, in general) on my Pinterest account: https://www.pinterest.com/chantel_arnett/
I'd like to possibly incorporate the idea of a fig hanging down (like an upside down light bulb (the light bulb representing GLOW).
Please do NOT feel like you have to go with that idea if you have a better one. :-)
Also, this will be used mostly for online (at least initially), so I am more worried about the colors looking good online than printed. However, I would also like the logo to be able to be used on a t-shirt as a small brand logo with a larger overall design being the main focus of the t-shirt.
I think I'd like the name on top with the slogan below...
Savor the Journey
I tried (and liked) these font pairings:
A fun pairing: Yellowtail is a fat brush script typeface with a mix of connecting letterforms. Contrasting nicely against the bold and more basic style of Open Sans Bold and Open Sans light.
League Gothic has a distinctive condensed style that has similarities to Archivo Narrow yet offsets well against the round form of Kollektif, acting as a nice barrier between heading and body copy.
A few of my idea/inspirations attached below...
Edited to add: I added a picture to show what I mean about using the brand logo under a t-shirt design.
I'd like the logo to have the text and an image, but if possible, I'd like to be able to use the text by itself too, so that I could show the text on a photo background, as in the first attachment.
*** Future projects for me may include blog header, favicon, etc. as well as t-shirt designs. :-) ***
QUESTION: Is it possible to switch the YouTube background for a blog header or home page image to be used on a WP blog? Instead of, not in addition to...

Thanks!! Excited to see final designs and proposals. :)
