Project description

Hi Again Designers, Looking for my 5th logo to be designed here, this time for my own purposes so the feedback and details will be straight from the dragons mouth... or in better words, from mine! After large demand I'm starting my own consulting business and I want the logo to represent the two sides of myself: 1) Proud Nerd/Tech Guru - Been in website dev for over 10 years 2) Professional & Cool at the same time - Extreme Sports player but can talk with executives easily The company name is "The Professional Nerd" and I want a logo that stands out and looks sharp, crisp, and elegant. I want the typeface to be a clean cut Sans-Serif font, no curly typefaces or comic sans please! Colour not too worried about this now because of the logo style. Logo style: I really want something that is a caricature, but without the enormous heads or the like. Please see the attached images for samples I really enjoy! I like the nina-joy (WooThemes) and nerd-pride images the best... nerd-pride is def the style I am looking for, but more of a professional look! -----START of Professional Nerd Style Guideline----- THE NERDS FACIAL FEATURES Want to see two different styles: 1) Clean shaven, no glasses 2) Thin-medium beard, well groomed and defined and again, no glasses! Both of the above facial styles of a guy with short hair, shaved head if possible and looks good. FOR THE BUTTON UP SHIRT: NO POCKET PROTECTOR! Remember... this is a "Cool Nerd", so a nice clean Button up shirt, preferably long sleeve. Thin stripes vertically, half the buttons undone so that the undershirt shows... think Clark Kent/Superman style. I'd like a very small logo of R2D2 on the top left hand side chest area. See this link for an example: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/1389/?srp=9 T-SHIRT UNDERNEATH THE BUTTON UP SHIRT: For the T-Shirt that the "nerd" is wearing, I want to have another Tee Shirt of either: 1) 010101011101 Code 2) "HTML" letters 3) "CSS" letters FOR THE PANTS/SLACKS: Solid color slacks, not baggy, but not too tight. Not rolled up on the bottom, a clean fit just above the shoes. This is similar: http://s7d9.scene7.com/is/image/sheplers/070049_89_p1?hei=575&wid=470&op_sharpen=1&size=470.0,575.0 FOR THE BELT: Let's see if we can get a nice black belt, but for the buckle, a subtle logo from the following Movies/TV Series: 1) A <h1> tag 2) "nix > *" text FOR THE SHOES: Now work/dress shoes... not too shiny, but black in colour. FOR THE HANDS PLACEMENT: I'd like to see two different styles here as well: 1) One hand in his pocket, the other hand holding a SAMSUNG tablet, NOT AN IPAD! 2) Both hands in his pockets -----END of Professional Nerd Style Guideline----- Here's a link to my LinkedIN profile for some background on me if needed and a photo as the characters look I'm trying to get it to match mine.. a bit. http://au.linkedin.com/in/timothylavelle/ Hopefully this isn't information overload and I'm hoping that with all these details, you designers will be able to accurately depict what I'm looking for! As always, any questions at all, PLEASE ASK! PLEASE NOTE: I have cancelled the one-on-one work due to site restrictions. Thanks and really looking forward to the designs. Cheers Tim
