I'm looking for a simple, elegant, and with a timeless and classic design. I'm looking for a design identity that shows my work and brand has character and soul.
The sand dollar or a slender starfish is what I have in mind. I've attached what seems to be the best clip art version of a sand dollar I could find on the internet. The starfish is my own drawing. I would need something similar to these...or better.
It will be used as a branding iron and stamp on wood work, leather work, and as a metal stamp. It needs to be easily used on a CNC machine, printable on a 3-D printer, and easily outlined for etching or carving. For this reason, the lines can't be too close to each other.
Must be scalable. It needs to be effective from as small as 1" stamp to a poster size without losing detail.
Ideally something that is "color-versatile" where it can be printed with black ink or metallic ink, and be reversed (ie. black and white positive/negative)
It will be used as a stamp on high-end items.
I'm open to suggestions, ideas, and advice (including an alternative logo).
