We like the GoDaddy logo for its slightly whimsical tone. Our rough ideas is that we'd have a photogher head holding a camera, in a cartoon-like sketch similar to Godaddy. Not trying to duplicate GoDaddy, just like the casual feeling. Could just be head, 35mm camera, and hands holding it.
Please keep in mind we'd like to embroider this logo on PHOTO vests for wearing at conferences, so the design shouldn't be TOO intricate that it will not embroider easily.
We're happy to discuss and throw ideas around, this is a process, and we will pay well for good work. Much work after this to design all other aspects of our marketing.
**Please note though, we're open to all design ideas, the above it just what we've thrown around at this office!
