1. Two crossing pistols with camera films for magazines and flowers coming out of the gun barrels. I'd love to see someone try this.
2. a very strong font logo / design of just the word "Parkershots" and no symbol.
3. a hand-drawn outline of an elephant's head facing forward with two very simple hand-drawn images of rose heads either side, smaller than the elephant's head. These should be thin lines to keep a soft appearance.
4. a coat of arms either basing it on the actual coat of arms for the name 'Parker' or designing something involving elephants either side.
I would like a logo that combines a classic / fine art feel with, a modern edgy factor to it. As these are two contrasting themes, I appreciate that this may be difficult.
In order to achieve it, one idea I had is to have a classic font, and then with some form of symbol to give the modern edgy side to it.
I love the look of a strong symbol in a logo, but struggle to see how I can incorporate one, as I don’t like the idea of shortening Parkershots to PS, but love the idea of an elephant as my logo. I think either an outline of an elephant or elephant's head or a watercolour look drawing of one as per the attached images.
For the winning design, I would then like to work with the designer for a business card design, stationary, and associated branding.
