Regarding the name: Please submit treatments with or without the "LLC" on the end...we haven't decided yet if we'll include it. Feel free to leave it on or off if you choose.
We would like the designers to be creative. We also encourage designers to review out website, http://www.blattfg.com for colors and feel that we like. Take special notice of the "nature" slider at the top of every page above the fold. Our office is very tranquil with lots of nature artwork, and the website design and photos reflect that feel.
We may also request the slogan to be excluded or changed. Feel free to submit a logo without the slogan if you've created something you think doesn't need the slogan (in other words, the slogan is optional in our opinion, and we're still toying with the verbage anyway).
Feel free to create your own slogan if you think you've got something in mind that might speak to us. Keywords we use on the site and in our materials regularly include "financial planning, sound planning, distribution, preservation, protection".
Our clients are typically high-net worth seniors and retirees who were CEO's, business leaders, entrepreneurs, doctors, investors, real estate developers, etc. They want to protect their money. They are nervous about the estate of the economy and want to save and invest every penny safely. Please keep this in mind when toying with colors and the design.
