There will have to be some balance here between fun/unique and professional. Being in the pet related industry means the logos will typically be pretty fun, but we are also a very high quality cleaning service so we need to project professionalism all the time.
I really like the idea of having a mascot and was thrilled with this logo for my other company: http://99designs.com/logo-design/co…ogo-198249
I am not too creative, though, and have not thought of what this mascot might look like though... I look forward to any ideas you all have.
Thank you all SO much for helping design this logo! I have been tremendously happy with several other contests I have run on here through other companies and look forward to what you can produce. If I like your design the most here, I will likely want to hire you for hourly work after the contest to make tweaks to it and design complementary work such as advertisements and promotional materials. If you do not like working hourly after winning the contest, that is no problem and I totally understand and respect your decision.
Also, please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions or need any clarifications on anything. I will try to be as prompt as possible during this process. Thanks!
