I am looking for a logo to represent both my company and myself.
I would love for the logo to consist of both typeface and an icon. I am open to the abbreviation "SLC" as part of the design as well.
I don't want any animals or personified characters of any kind. I'd like for it to be clean and simple, yet distinctive. No more than three colors in the entire logo.
It also needs to be scalable to different sizes and media (e.g., business cards, polo shirts, posters, etc.)
Some examples of logos I like are:
Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/ - I love that the arrow goes from "A to Z" and is in the shape of a smile. Simple, but it says a lot.
Field Notes Brand http://fieldnotesbrand.com/ - They took two words, a basic black font, and a brown background and turned it into an instantly recognizable brand among their followers.
99designs.com's logo is also a great example of a logo that is simple, yet effective at bringing what they do to life.
Sony, BBC, YouTube, and Pandora are other logos that I think are great.
Please feel free to experiment with colors, but I don't want anything neon.
The file types I need are: .ai (CMYK), .eps, .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
