Project description

We need a logo that will express our contemporary outlook and style but classic service. A mixed-font logo would be preferable. Logo should have sophistication and be able to fit well into not only a bridal magazine but any fashion magazine well. We don't want something overly feminine. We like many logos from wedding photographers in our industry. The logo should not be too "crafty" looking, have more of a clean look, not "cartoony."

**Please see the attached file for logos that we like as inspiration.

OTHER DETAILS

Would ultimately like the logo to have two components, a written out Mink Makeup + Hair (preferable with Mink on its own line or in its own distinct font) and a logo image or letter M or seal above it. **But am open to other interpretations.

No wedding-related icons should be included, needs to be able to fit just as easily into a fashion magazine
The logo should be able to look good in its original colors and in all white, too
The logo should have the word "MINK" on its own line of text separate from "Makeup + Hair"
Can place "Mink" in all caps if that seems to work better
Can interchange the plus sign in our name with a & if it works better
Mink Makeup + Hair name should be in a neutral color (black, grey, taupe) but the "M" of mink could be a different color than the rest (again using a different neutral or other color) but Makeup + Hair should be neutral tones.
We are looking for either a creative way to write the M in Mink or a Calligraphic M above the whole name, or a "seal" above the name, and are open to any other creative mixes to express in images our name
The name Mink comes from a condensed form of "Melanie's Ink" - this might provide some inspiration but does not necessarily have to be a factor in the logo creation
Can mix fonts between “Mink” and “Makeup + Hair”
Above all, it must look classy and sophisticated with a slight creative edge and pretty clean-looking

Comments

  • There are elements here that I quite like. I'm not certain that the seal is there yet..it needs a little less traditional edge. While I did rate the #66 logo high it's still not the right fit because I do prefer the typeface of logo like #85 and #78. please see http://www.freddauzat.com/#1158754/Logos-selecta for more inspiration on aesthetic I like. Ultimately I need the logo to still look clean and simple with a little creative edge. It must fit equally well into a fashion magazine with it's mixed typeface and still look contemporary.
  • While I did rate logo #66 high, it's still not 100% what I'm looking for in the font. please see http://www.freddauzat.com/#1158754/Logos-selecta for more inspiration on aesthetic I like.

  • While I did rate logo #6 fairly high, it's still not 100% because while I like the font it's still not quite the right fit for me. please see http://www.freddauzat.com/#1158754/Logos-selecta for more inspiration on aesthetic I like.

  • Please see notes for #98.
  • I really appreciate the aesthetic here and the creativity. It's just too busy. the Whole concept should still appear simple but have that creative edge (e.g. love the "sunburst" lines you used in the circle as it doesn't make anything look too busy while enhancing the creative look). With that said...I do need Mink Makeup + Hair to be outside of a seal.

  • Interesting but still not the right M fit. While I did rate logo #66 high, it's still not quite the right fit. The font is still not 100%.

  • Jey
    Dear CH, Please give me our opinion for my design. Thank's.
  • SCH
    Hi CH, Thank you for the valuable information, i hope that i have got it right on my design this time around.
  • changed the font of "makeup & hair" read your comment and revering to website but not sure what to make of that: colors ? you want 1 single texline or?
  • About #86 Thank you again for your feedback! I went with a seal design, using more of a curvy font for the "M" like in the example website you have provided. Keeping with the same layout of the other font. I do have more font choices as well as ideas. Thank you again!
  • I really like your experimentation with the seal, love the circle with lighter border. I'm just not in love with the M, but definitely a cool idea...I have another site that I'd like you to reference: http://vi.sualize.us/cmuller007/ink/ the Lefthand most images in the top two rows have an aesthetic that my new website will be like. Please keep this in mind when designing.
