The logo just needs to be of the name "Graham English." It has to fit many situations, i.e. be able to add different modifiers like "The Graham English Show" or "The Graham English Style Files" or something like that.
1) We're thinking about a black and white color scheme, maybe with some red. Perhaps even colorless: http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/136604/Colorless. 2) We need to have a SANS SERIF font, but bold and easy to read.
The vibe should be eclectic and introspective. It needs to be serious, meditative, and artistic. A mix of rock and jazz... but more jazz than rock.
drab, boring, difficult to read, SERIF, don't want it to be difficult to use in multiple formats.
