Please - help me find my new identity.... (and sorry for the long text)..
So - this is me:
I know media production. Every kind of it. TV (live&recorded), Webvideo, Radio/Audio. Also I worked with a lot of professional websites.
And I have been an editor for years. I know my job.
I'm looking for a logo for my freelancing life. I will call it "Produktionspilot". (english=production pilot). (maybe PP sometimes, but I don't know about that right now.)
Back to topic:
I'm the "pilot of the production". (In german "Produktion" is also a word for "media production".)
In short: I'm the freelancing guy in a tv-production that "get's it all together". I'll take responsibility.
I'm very good at organization and project management.
Strenghts: years of work behind me. I'm reliabile. I'm a autodidact. I always know "what to do next". I'm passionate. I'm independente. I've got a big network of people that I need. Camera guys, makeup artists, cutter, etc... I'm a "worker" _and_ a "consultant".
And I am quiet embarrased about all these things I have to write about me ;-) It sounds so cocky....
There are 2 target audiences:
First, simple: companies that need a guy like me . I'm for hire.
Second: customers that need good project management and/or knowledge in my area of expertise, guidance.
In general, they are creative and professional people.
My goal: To show that I am the person that they need. I know every step of a projects way. Contentwise and in organization.
I can get the customers project "trough it". From A to Z. Easily. I want to stress out reliability and a kind of "know it all"-feel.
In my thoughts (which may change afterwards ;), the logo (gfx & type) should be themed about the "pilot" thing in my name.
The projects I want to work in are "TV" & "movie-production". That sould be the focus - IF some inspiration is needed besides the "pilot/airplane"-thing.
As I mentiond before: With the metapher of being the "pilot of the project", I want to show, that I know "it all". I know my machine (technics), I know the crew and I know how to "land the thing".
In the end, me, the "Produktionspilot", should represent a nice, reliable guy who knows everything about "tv-production". Maybe a stylized character in a plane? I don't know and I don't want to be too specific.. because thats why I am writing this: I need your creativity.
I'm also very open for "simple, sleek designs". No plane/pilot-stuff needed. A nice typo and/or clear visuals - that's what makes me happy :-)
I like clear visuals. No 3D stuff. I like clever ideas that are implemented intelligently.
Please feel free to experiment with colours.
Please do not use a stock image or clip-art in the logo.
Please not too "technical" or "future/matrix-style".. Seen enough of that.
If you got any questions: please ask!
