I'm a one man show and. Generally speaking, I'm providing management services to my clients (build up new or reorganize existing businesses). I'm working with C-level executives, senior management or members of the Board of Directors of medium to large companies.
But... I'm rebranding my one-man-company to "the crazy one" and I'm looking for a logo that reflects not what I do, but what I believe in.
I'm a freethinker and I don't care about status symbols, job titles & positions, image, money, etc. The only thing I care is to achieve the objective (don't measure me by my positions, measure me by my results). I'm a rebel and I hate formalism and internal politics. I'm refusing to follow nonsensical processes and rules. I prefer transparency and getting straight to the point. Even when meeting CEOs or BoD members of large & global organization, I never wear a tie. I cannot be forced to follow a certain path, I can only be convinced to do so.
Nothing describes my believes better than the "think different" advertisement of Apple:
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
If a single icon / symbolic logo can be found to capture the "think different" manifest of apple... that would be my favorite logo.
btw: not an apple as symbol as this is already associated with Apple.
