We are looking for a professional image to use as a brand. We've got a full color logo already, but we are looking for a vector image we can use to identify our company without having to write the full company name. The brand must be simple enough to be identified when shrunk down yet classy and professional.
The company name is Nominal Records. It is a record label. Our initial idea is to have a shield (like a family crest) and the letters N and R in it. Maybe with some embellishments on top, or a dragon, or something. We don't want it to be tacky, too busy, or trashy. This is a professional company. The brand must be vector or similar so it can be easily placed into different backgrounds. It must be high res so it can be printed. We want this to be very identifiable (like the Nike swoosh).
You can send me mock-ups if you wish (feel free to watermark them or security code them). The budget is tight for us in the marketing department, but we are working on getting a higher budget. Good work will be rewarded with more opportunities. Thanks.
