Attached screenshots from logos I like. I'm looking for an end result with this kind of look. Simplicity is a big factor, professionalism and trust are next.
Urban Linker - has a look I like and is in the same business space
Gild - I like the simplicity of it with an icon - so actually, I would like Talent Fountain in something simple with a distinct icon (some kind of fountain)
Links to other logos:
(I just like the lines, not the stars, not the colors)
(I like the way the logo is between the two words which could work for Talent Fountain, the logo however is less refined than I would like)
(I like the fountain icon, perhaps without the curls at the end of the lines)
There is also one particularity about all of these. I don't have the talentfountain domain so I'm using talent.vc and I like that because it's shorter and it also symbolizes a product I will be offering to venture backed growth companies. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I thought I would put it in the brief.
