-It's important to me that the font is readable-ie: not highly curlicued cursive or scribbled type of font. But that doesn't mean the font needs to be boring. Try to convey the adjectives described at the beginning of my brief with the font.
-I like simple, powerful images versus complicated, cerebral graphics with a lot going on. Check out my inspirations above. All are pretty simple, whether abstract or realistic.
-I seem to measure high on more feminine versus masculine feel, so make sure fonts and graphics are not too angular and masculine.
-colors I like are blues, light purples such as lavender/blue, grey, pale yellow, maybe brown if it's used in a way I like--more gently (such as the bicycle or giraffe above) and lots of white. I'd have to be convinced about green since I see that everywhere with therapists.
-please stay away from very cliched therapy images such as trees, which symbolize "growth" (not so much what I'm trying to emphasize).
-some image ideas might be to play on the idea of water and also a safe haven, so houses or something like that. Hearts and more abstract hugging figures are also ok. I like watercolor images and the watery feel of those might go well with the name "brookhaven". But I'd like to see your ideas as well.
-don't be afraid to show more than one concept, for example one more retro and one more modern.
-if I love your logo, you will likely be offered the opportunity to work on other upcoming design projects I'll need including business cards, brochures, web graphics for a site and social media.
Thank you! Excited to see your designs.
