How Michael Vlessides started their logo design journey

Company name

teXtmen writing seminars

Overview

Michael Vlessides has been creating written copy for a range of clients for 20+ years. From magazines to brochures to best-selling books, I've written it all!

Now I'm taking my message on the road, with a business designed to help professionals of all stripe improve their written communication and e-etiquette skills in the Twitter Age, when the written word is more important -- and more abused! -- than ever.

I'm excited by the amount of creative brain power 99designs can harness, and will provide lots of feedback for the duration of this guaranteed competition.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

teXtmen will provide half-day, full-day, and weekend-long communication seminars to professionals young and old alike who use the written word in their day-to-day business activities, whether by snail mail, e-mail, text messaging, or social/professional networking web sites.

Clients will likely hail from a variety of professions. In all cases, though, they will prove intelligent and discerning. With this in mind, the company logo needs to be fun and creative, but not trite.

Requirements

I envision the logo with the word 'teXtmen' most prominent, with 'writing seminars' secondary, either underneath or otherwise subordinated.

Clearly, we are playing off the superhero theme here, but you must be careful not to go overboard, for a couple of reasons:
1) If the logo appears too much like the X Men movie/comic logo, there will be copyright infringement issues to deal with, any nobody wants that!
2) Too much superhero says cheap and goofy, and that is not the message I want to convey.

Clients need to see the teXtmen logo and instantly recognize yes, this is something fun and creative, but rock-solid professional, experienced, and serious at the same time.

Only the X in teXtmen is capitalized; the initial 'w' in writing and 's' in seminars are lower case.

I'm open to anything with regard to color scheme, but don't really see this as an overly colorful logo. Black should be fairly prominent.

This logo will be used on business cards, letterhead, and the company website, so it needs to be be suitable for a variety of media.

This likely goes without saying, but the final product needs to be, at a minimum, an Illustrator vectored eps file, as well as jpg, pdf, and tiff.

I am also considering adding the following tag line to the business card, so you can add this if you're feeling adventurous:
Saving the written world, one dangling participle at a time...
