This is for a site called Mastodons.com which doesn't exist yet.
A mastodon is like a wooly mammoth, you can look it up online to find pictures of it.
This site is going to be used as a catch-all website for all of my various projects, so it will be a blog, it will highlight my books, it will have business strategies and consulting, it will have information about the various classes that I'm teaching, etc.
The tagline will be Mastodons: Big Hairy Ideas
I want the energy to be both professional and fun at the same time, neither a dry corporate feel or a whimsical childish look.
It must have an illustration of a Mastodon in it, preferably looking forward, not turned sideways. Getting the image of the Mastodon right is the most important part. Note, many designers have tried squeezing a lightbulb in with the mastodon to represent ideas. Good thinking, but I don't want a lightbulb in the image, just a mastodon.
