What text should be included in the main part of the logo?
Rafael Javier Photography
What type of product or service do you offer?
I photograph kids birthday parties, weddings, portraits
How long have you been in business?
been doing photography for 2.5 years as a hobby and now I am taking it a lot more serious.
What do you hope to accomplish with your new identity?
I am hoping to create my photography branding with the logo. I need for people to see my photos watermarked and know who shot the photo. The logo needs to say something about me - I love to take candid photojournalist style photography and I love to capture the special moments.
I need for the logo to show professionalism and that i mean serious business when I am shooting.
What are your long term goals?
My long term goal is to perfect my photography skills. I love to capture the moments as they are happening and also create photography that is inspiring. hopefully in a few years I will love to have a nice client base thru references from past clients.
When is the deadline for final entries before choosing a designer?
I am hoping that I've come to the right place to get my logo designed. I am aiming by April 10th 2010 which is three weeks from now which I feel is plenty of time to give all designers an opportunity to show me what they've come up with.
Please describe your existing audience
My existing audience is mainly kids birthday parties and some weddings along with portraits of couples.
Who would you like to add to your audience?
I will love to reach out to more wedding couples and sweet sixteen events and family portraits.
Also I will love to attract clients who truly value photography and want to invest some time and money in it.
What type of logo would you like?
I need a logo that will tell the audience that I am about candid photojournalist style photography and that I am there to seek and capture those memorable moments. A logo that will show that I am serious about the photography and to show professionalism.
I am looking for a logo that is clean & modern.
I've seen logos that contain very nice pleasing reflections below them and within - I will like to see some designs with this incorporated.
See how can my initials RJ (these are my first name and last name initials) be put together to make a unique icon that will stick out to people when I watermark my photos with just the icon. Perhaps the initials RJP may be used as well
Do you have any colors in mind for your logo? (if so, why?)
I am fully opened to any color scheme that you come up with. I love soft and pleasing colors. The following are some colors that I have in mind but again i am opened to some other color scheme. The colors from the logo will be used to color my web site and also will serve as the branding colors.
Dark Orange color - i've been using this color for my current water mark.
Metallic Silver, Black, Silver,
Cherry Red or Dark Red
Some type of soft Blue
Some type of Brown
Do you have any specific images or icons in mind that you would definitely like to see incorporated into your logo?
See how can my initials RJ or RJP be put together to make a unique icon that will stick out to people when I watermark my photos with just the icon.
Nikons have on the right side a hand grid and at the front it has a red rubber piece which is the sign and trademark for Nikon camera bodies - I would like to see how something like this can be used to hint that I use Nikon gear.
What attributes would you like your logo to reflect about your business?
Candid photography, capturing the moments in time. I am here to record your special event thru photography. I am serious about getting the best photos for you.
What is your tagline or slogan?
Capturing memorable moments in time
What is the overall message you are trying to convey to your target audience?
Candid photography, Capturing memorable moments in time
Where will your new logo be used?
My logo will be used in my photography website and blog. I will need to use it to watermark my web images and proofs. I will also use it on my business cards, flyers and perhaps get it printed on fabric such as T-shirts or hats.
I will most likely need to be able to resize the logo as needed.
If the logo has an icon that represents who RJavier Photography is i will like to be able to use that piece to watermark the photos when desired.
Who are your competitors and what do you think about their logos?
There are many photographers world wide but I will say anyone that is within the New York City tri-state area.
List competitive URLs if possible
What sets you apart from your competitors?
State a single-minded word or phrase that will appropriately describe your company:
