I am seeking a logo for a brand that I am considering launching and I would like for it to be more than just text + tagline. That said, perhaps a symbol? a graphic of the first letter of the brand name? a symbol / icon that represent the brand...
A perfect example is "NIKE" and their swoosh; all of their products and services contain the swish. However, some contain the swoosh with "NIKE" but if "NIKE" (the plan text) is not seen anywhere near the swoosh, consumers still know it's a NIKE product.
That's my goal, it is VERY hard and VERY rare for a symbol / icon to identify your brand easily without tonsssss of advertising and investment; but NIKE pulled it off by having several variants of their logo (E.g., the swoosh with or without the "NIKE" text on their products).
This is an extremely simple task for an extremely single brand name (based on the industry). That said, if you do a good job, expect more work to be given to you.
What's required: All fonts used must be 100% FREE so I won't need to license anything. All elements, designs, vectors, shapes must be 100% UNIQUE AND ORIGINAL and NOT "stock" or "free" --- this is for a business, and I don't want to get sued over of a $20 logo.
Finally, I need this in editable AI and/or SVG files at 0% compression levels. Colors used must be provided to me in both CMYK and HEX so printed content must match the content on my website.
*DO NOT ASK FOR MORE THAN MY BUDGET, YOU WILL BE IGNORED AND BLOCKED FOR MY FUTURE PROJECTS.
