I'm calling the company Pink Stallion, because my last name (Hengst) means Stallion in Dutch. And because I'm a homo. (Pink). Please note that the design does not need to feature a horse head. If you have a great treatment for one, I'd love to see it. But feel free to take inspiration from other places - in fact - I encourage it. Horse shoes, hitching posts, noses, horse mouths, etc.
Id like a design (icon) that could also stand alone from the words at times. I'm also generally looking for a font without serifs that is written in either all caps or all lower case.
I'd like to see a few neon inspired concepts.
I'm seekin a bold design that can stand out in a community that has a lot of other players also producing events. Our average consumer tends to be a little more mature - 30 to 55 - and is a bit more established in life. They likely own a home, have a partner (or are married), tend to be male, and are hungry for social events that appeal to them and their friends. This logo will likely be used on postcard, posters, and promotional materials widely - and most also stand out on social media, because this is where are most likely to engage with our audiences.
We love things that are inspired by Art Deco - and there are some really cool Deco/Masculine/Bold horse images that can be found on the internet. We're also not in a place where things need to be that literally a "Stallion", We're fun and playful - and edgy at times. Fun is encouraged.
We've worked to design a few logos ourselves (attached), and I am not 100% set on the ones we created. Most think it looks too much like a chess piece. I'm looking for some designers to come up with something that could be used in conjunction with a drag show, a live queer rocker performing with a 5 piece band, or a day at the farm for local LGBTQ families.
