How Centennial Solutions started their logo design journey
Our real estate investing company needs a logo bad! We're growing and need to make our company a brand. We need an impressive logo for our website, business cards, stationary, other misc. marketing items. Thanks in advance for your hard work!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We're a small real estate investing company in beautiful Washington state near the Puget Sound. We're looking to grow and need a logo that represents our character and distinguishes us form the competition. We're a hard working, professional, down-to-earth bunch and want our logo to express that. We buy and sell residential and commercial properties and the logo will be common for both so no houses or skyscrapers please.
Logo can be clean, simple, geometric or more complex and include symbolism to the word "centennial". You're probably thinking "Centennial, what the heck does that symbolize?" The dictionary definition of "centennial" is:
1. Of or relating to an age or period of 100 years.2. Occurring once every 100 years: a centennial commemoration.3. Of or relating to a 100th anniversary.4. A 100th anniversary or a celebration of it.
So I'll try and explain what it means to me, without sounding too sentimental or cheesy. It represents success over time, overcoming obstacles, being innovative, and new beginnings. So if that can be conveyed in a logo, have at it.
Designs should include our name and incorporate the colors used on our website, which is under construction: http://www.centennialsolutions.com.
I'm no logo designer, that's why I'm here. So please feel free to ask question or give suggestions. Thanks again!
