Here's our current logo that we want to reboot:
The new logo needs just this text:
"First National Realty"
AND we need to see one with a tagline, use this tagline: "Non-Affiliated"
For the icon, we can throw away the old one. If you have an idea for a new one, we're open, maybe something with a bit of 3D. Icon isn't required -- strong typography-based logo is preferred. We're open to a wide range of designs and encourage you to be creative.
Colors: navy blue, gold, black, white.
We want to emphasize 'First National' with the 'Realty' secondary... so something like "First National" on one line, then "Realty" on second line (in effect, underlining "First National"). Include trademark (TM) symbol.
Overall mood of the company: elegant, class, professional
Look and feel of logo: polished. Avoid the "web 2.0" look. Need it timeless and versatile. Strong on typography.
http://new.myfonts.com/category/ is a powerful font navigator for ideas.
As with any brand, we would like the logo to be distinctive enough to be recongizable and to help build a brand over time.
Thanks for the creative help! Looking forward to your incredible ideas helping to propel our company forward!
