This will be used primarily on my website which is a minimal one page
site using WooThemes "One Page" theme
(http://demo2.woothemes.com/?name=theonepager). It will most likely
be set against a white, light gray or possibly very light red
background, but that is primarily dependent upon what looks best with
the winning design.
I am open to either of two primary styles: Emblem style or Pictorial
General notes for either style:
Whichever route you go, I prefer that a fish is incorporated in some
fashion, and in both instances I prefer a fish that is more on the
subtle side of things than a fully drawn out fish (hopefully that
makes sense...horse Logo is most similar to what I mean). But, please
do not submit designs where the fish looks similar to the symbol for
a Christian Fish (please google image search that if you don't know
what I mean).
Notes on Emblem style:
Of the two logos shown as examples of the emblem, I prefer general
look and feel of the Lexington Beer, but do want a fish incorporated
in some fashion which is why I also included the Wolf logo.
For Pictorial style:
In the Fish logo I did like the use of the subtle fish hook in the
"y", and also didn't hate the color pallet. I didn't like the fish
itself as much as I did the Horse in its logo. Generally speaking, I
prefer the fish be facing right. Also, if using the Fish logo as
inspiration, I would prefer one that is a bit more serious and less
whimsical. As noted, I did like the Fish Hook in the font, but would
prefer a more subtle design in general.
Again, I'm torn between the Emblem style and the Pictorial style so
please don't hesitate to submit designs in either (or both) styles.
Finally, I've also uploaded an additional file that is an image of
what an actual Gray Snapper looks like. It is there to give you a
general feel of the shape and color patterns of the actual fish the
business is named after (my favorite fish to catch and eat). It is
simply for inspiration.
