Seeking to develop personal brand for ministry and professional platform (http://www.CoreyCarlisle.org).
Open to variations in name:
-Dr. Corey Carlisle
Optional Slogan: Live Passionately
While I'm seeking to brand my personal name, the name of my LLC is Touchstone Ministries. I would like to somehow represent the concept of a touchstone in the logo if possible (see update).
"A touchstone is a small tablet of dark stone such as fieldstone, slate, or lydite, used for assaying precious metal alloys...As a metaphor, a touchstone refers to any physical or intellectual measure by which the validity or merit of a concept can be tested."
Attached is the current logo for my business I put together (to update at another time). Would like to maintaining the owl theme, but the main emphasis is on stylizing my name.
Below are other designs I like, particularly the layout (i.e., a stand-alone graphic with name to the side).
As the main graphic, I'm thinking some sort of owl etched onto a dark stone (as a shield or maybe the owl's head as type of stone???) with a mark of gold (maybe the slogan in gold: Live Passionately). My name to the side or below.
I’m discovering my preferred logo type is one with a “pictorial mark.” As such, the owl/touchstone theme will be the key feature, and the name/slogan will simply complement this graphic.
I'm also looking for a "strong quiet type" logo, one that can say a lot with only a little.
Here are a few owl logos that I like.
