I am starting a new enterprise on our farm, Long Creek Pastures, that will market our products (mainly beef) directly to consumers. It is still in it's infancy, but I am wanting to get a logo designed to help build the brand. I don't want it to be super busy, or abstract. I like the colors blue, green, and brown, but am not married to them.
My cows are Belted Galloways, which are black with a white stripe around their bellies (think oreo cookie). I would be OK with incorporating them into the design if it doesn't look cheesy.
I would also think it would be neat to do something with a creek. I'm sure you guys will have better ideas on how to do it than me.
I had another idea to use a cross section of the ground, showing the soil, plant roots, and grass on top with the name faded into the grass . I included a rough sketch for that one.
Here is a link to my blog post that introduced Long Creek Pastures last April.
Then I have a facebook page as well.
