SGreene got their new logo & business card by running a design contest:
New logo and business card wanted for Sarah Greene Photography
Check out SGreene's Logo & business card contest…
I am a serious photographer that has a large volume of landscape photos city-scape pictures from the U.S. and around the world. However, I would like to start targeting commercial and real estate companies to take photos for their business operations. I can also do head shots/families, but prefer not making that my main business. I'm going to be targeting a Midwest U.S. crowd - very nature-rich, environmentally-friendly, water/lake-friendly area of the country. However, many of my shots are around the world - I'm an adventure-travel lover. So in my pictures I like to encourage people to enjoy life and go...to wherever they want to explore next. That's my playful side certainly ... but I have to keep in mind my other profession. I'm a lawyer by trade so I still have to maintain a certain professionalism and unfortunately some seriousness in everything I do. I'd like a nice balance of playful/trendy/modern but that also shows that I'm serious about being a photographer and that I know what I'm doing.
Other color requirements
I am open minded about colors (I originally said green, blue, orange, yellow) but I don't like everything I saw so far so I'm going to be more open minded about the colors (and your suggestions). The colors are going to go on a business card and on a website. I'm going to want the logo to be versatile to show up on a dark photo (switch to white) or a light photo. If I use it on letterhead/business cards, I just want it to stand out a bit. I want something original. I like color, but still want it professional/classy/trendy/modern.
The following three photos I attached are just a few samples of my work. I took these photos last week throughout Oregon. They are not to be used in the logo really - just to show some of what I do. The other examples are what I found on the web to show some of what I like and why: June Card: color palette, different text/font, some of it bold/not, a little playful, unique Jennifer: like look/texture of the font (seems original/interesting); the tree is okay; I'd like some color Marcos Felipe: I'm surprised I like this so much, but it is different, unique and bold; it is a little too loud for what I'm looking for, but I do like it. The black/yellow isn't so bad, but I think I would want a softer palette. The image with lots of designs: I like the Jennifer Marrion and Belle Anabelle design: Marrion for the color palette, that it is in a blocked design and is unique in a classical way but not too much detail; I also like the font; the belle annabelle one is also interesting - I like the font and the lower case, the brown is okay ***Caffe Moak: This design is just cool: I love the color palette, it is unique, original, different, catches my eye ( I don't know if in the design world it is unique/original but I like it); It works well for the business card shown. I like the abstract design and when I looked online for examples or similar ones did now show up like many others. Hunter Sprague: This one is also cool. It is unique, trendy, catches the eye and I like the font, don't necessarily mind that it is all black/white but wouldn't mind some color. Jasper: I like this because it is simple, bold, and I like the text/font. It is totally different from the reasons why I like Caffe Moak and Hunter (which is why I could be troubling designers - I am sorry!) ... It is the lawyer v. photographer in me Clayton: I like the color palette (black/blue/white); It is simple/sleek and somewhat interesting **Finessence: I like the pattern on this business card - I really want an abstract pattern (this will probably come in the later stages for the bus card) but I want some abstract pattern of something on my card. I also like the color palette. I think I like the teals, blues, yellows, oranges, gray Sara Morris: This is simple and more playful, but I like the playful feel and the font of it. I'd want some color but I think it works well as a photog logo **John Charles: I really like this logo; I like the black, orange, yellow, white color palette; I like the font - also how it fades in and out of light/dark/boldness; I like the different bold background other than white; and I like the logo of his initials Fresh: I think this is unique, interesting and original; I like the image, it makes me smile and I like the orange shades of color a lot Jamie Calder: There isn't much of a logo here on this business card other than the initials in the background, but I like the orange/gray/neutral tones and the I also like the font of the card - it's professional but still somewhat playful Ana photography: I like the slanted logo on the business card, the yellow/orange/gray color palette and colored edges, and the texture of what it looks like. Clint: I feel a theme going - I also like the gray/yellow color palette, the blocked look of the logo, the simple/sleek look of it Amiely: I like this logo for a photog - it is playful, I like the text, I like the color palette and how some parts are in bold - it makes me smile which I want to make people do with my photos :) Lines: For some reason this stuck out to me just because it is unique and different and original - I like it a lot because I'm looking for some abstract design on the back of my business card - whether that is incorporated into the logo design is completely an option right now. I'm open to suggestions. **Kirk Smith: I like this card a lot also and I'm somewhat surprised b/c it is only in black/white/gray. It is simple, sleek, cool looking and professional. I'm wondering what something different (totally original of course) would look like in a yellow or orange tones with gray or neutral tones look like that with my business name in it. Peter Ivancak: I think this is unique - I like how they did the dots with "pi" in lowercase. It makes it interesting an b/c of that, I don't mind the black/white. **Lachlan Burrell: Unique, original design before the name; I like the font/typeface - it is interesting, and I like the color palette BCP: This is one where I don't mind an image of a camera being used - is is discrete, not obvious and more abstract The orange one: just makes me happy - like the colors and is more unique Hope these suggestions on what I like help. -Sarah
