How Richard Ring started their logo design journey

Company name

Richard Ring

Overview

Hello, my name is Richard Ring and I work in Financial IT. Right now I am transitioning jobs from Tokyo, Japan to (hopefully) London, UK. My field right now is in Account Management and I am looking to transition into Project Management when I relocate. To help facilitate that I am looking to create a clean Name Logo to help with my 'Personal Brand,' not only for job hunting but for MBA applications and to just establish myself as a person of interest in the Industry.

Some of the keywords I have been described as in Branding Surveys are:

Personal Attributes:
Self-motivated
Driven
Honest
Intelligent
Organized

Greatest Strengths:
Organizing (content, activities)
Managing time
Solving problems
Developing ideas
Growing professionally
Making decisions

To be clear, I am looking to represent myself, ie. the above characteristics, through my Logo and my personal Brand. Some of the other things that interest me at work are finding efficient solutions to old problems and motivating co-workers on a team to get the job done well.

On a personal side I am an American who has lived in Japan for the last 4 years and am looking to broaden my international feeling by moving to Europe and working for several years before returning to Asia or even the US again. I also take a deep interest in fitness and bodybuilding, but this is not something I need to show in my logo.

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

My target audience is professionals in the Finance industry. I have attached a document of 'Logos.jpg' from a Finance in Tokyo Fun Run T-Shirt where most of the Financial Industry players are represented in a red background and white logo text. These are the types of companies I am looking to employe at and influence. My logo needs to be something that these well established companies would respect and show interest in.

Individually, the people in those companies I am targeting would be middle to upper management and recruitment officers. It needs to capture their attention and make them look at what I have to offer. I am also looking to influence my peers but I feel that if I am able to make a good impression with the decision makers of an organization, through the logo, then that should cover the impression of a coworker as well.

Requirements

The logo text should include the words: Richard Ring

The logo should look good in black and white or in color.

The logo should incorporate my full name and not any nick names.

The logo should have space underneath it to add a catch phrase or few words (see the Ernst & Young logo in Logos.jpg). This should be editable as I change professions or direction. Or removable if I need it to be.

The logo should not JUST be my name in fancy text, I would like a shape or some sort of design object to accent it.

My goal with the logo to to then make Stationary (for Resumes, Thank you/Cover Letters, Business Cards, etc...). So it should be something that would look good on print and is scable. Vector Art is a Plus and the .PSD is a must so I can make any necessary changes.

A variety of colors would be great. I am looking for classical colors such as Grey-tones, blacks, whites, blues, greens, reds but nothing too crazy or Cartoony. I am appealing to upper-class Financial Institutions so it needs to not feel childish.

Everything else is up to the artist! I have put a picture of myself to help you get a feel for who I am (DSC_4177_W.JPG) if you want any other sources for inspiration let me know!
