How 99Usr started their logo design journey

Summary

We're starting a new film company called The Alexander Company, and it needs a logo. Our first feature film project, slated to be released in 2011, will be co-produced by an Oscar and Golden Globe-winning producer, so you WILL likely see your work on the silver screen.

Company name

The Alexander Company

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We're looking for a fairly simple, uncomplicated and uncluttered logo shaped somewhat like this one:

What I mean by that is that we're looking for the centerpiece / universally recognizable part of our logo to be the emblem above our company name, as opposed to a company name that's tied into the logo. More examples of what I mean:

DreamWorks

Now, more specifically, we'd like the emblem to be a lifelike medieval sword clutched in a fist pointing upwards and to the side, like so:

http://img242.imageshack.us/img242/…ordsw3.jpg

Alittle bit more upwards though, as in "that way, TO WAR!" Also, thesword should be a little thicker (not of an unrealistic or cartoonish size though)as to have a more imposing presence that wouldlook good as an emblem.

Oh and we also need a nice business card to put the logo on, so please include that too, but focus on making the logo: it's easy to just put a good logo on a nice business card template. :)

Read the 'wants' and 'don't wants' for more info.

Wants

- logo to be simple, uncomplicated and uncluttered (I usually prefer vector logos)
- emblem to be icon-shaped like the first example
- emblem to be the universally recognizable centerpiece of the logo, with 'The Alexander Company' written underneath
- emblem to be an imposing lifelike medieval sword clutched in a fist, pointed upwards and to the side, as if by a general commanding his army to attack in that direction
- overall logo must have an ancient, medieval, lifelike (not cartoonish) look
- logo must be excellent enough to show to hundreds of thousands of people before a movie
- colors of your choice, but I think black on dark gold background (like ancient coins) would look good as one of the options
- do good: more people will see this than anything else you'll ever make :)

Don't want

- no logos that look anything but stellar
- no logos that are too complicated / messy
- nothing techy: this is a logo themed after Alexander the Great, not a logo for a web 2.0 company :)
- nothing unrealistic or cartoonish
