Firstly, I am not cemented to any of the ideas below! Just wanted to come prepared with some things I already know. . .
#11 (and similar hands interlocked to create a heart)is too literal, and too cheesy for me. I want to appeal to the children and grandchildren of future clients, not just the elderly clients themselves. #12 is okay, but I would want two hands working "in tandem", not the one. And I would want an easier to read, not so scroll-y font. Logo #13 might be one of my favorites, but in different colors. I like that they look like hands sort of, but not too abstract, and not too literal. #14 I also like the abstract hands, but when they are in the same color, it gives the impression they are both hands of the same person, and not sure I like them facing away from each other. Also, the flower makes the design a bit too feminine, and yoga-ey. #16 is another one of my favorites, for similar reasons as #13. On #17, the hands are too abstract. The only reason I would tell that they are hands is because they are grouped with other pictures of hands. #18, I like the idea of the hands creating another design, though this one is also too hindu-yoga-ey for my business. Of the two in #20, they are both too militant (because of the colors? sharp angles? not sure), but I play with the idea of some sort of badge-logo idea. So, #21, #22, and #23 I played with the idea of incorporating the hands in to the text themselves. For instance "In Tandem" I want on the top line, and "Healthcare" on the bottom line. Maybe a letter from the top could be tied to a letter on the bottom with linked hands? Again, I am not sure I want the hands to be TOO literal, and I like the look of them reaching for or supporting another rather than shaking hands. #28, #29, #30, and #31 all are depictions of a partnership, away from the hands idea (which again, I'm not tied to). I think #28 is too simplistic (Definitely don't like the black and red colors). I like that #29 kind of looks like people reaching high together. #30 I wondered about the color palette, and I like the abstractness, but I think it is too childish and playful as-is. #31 is another one of my favorites, though I want to be sure both figures are same size and appear equal, so it doesn't look like an adult-child, or superior relationship. I also don't want a variation of that to turn in to the trendy infinity symbol (its just not right for my brand). Even though my business consults and enlists community resources, I think I like the two figure logo better than a community of figures like in #26, and I want the two figures to be at least slightly different in color.
