[Project Complete] - New Logo needed - Portrait Photographer - $200

(Admin code added by Palmer - 3SS00976413229748)

Project Summary:
What text should be included in the main part of the logo?
Kris Doman - Portrait Artist

What type of product or service do you offer?
Portrait Photography - specialty is families and children on location in beautiful scenery in all seasons

How long have you been in business?
19 years

What do you hope to accomplish with your new identity?
I want to rebrand with the seasons as my focus. My tag line is "Art for every season"

What are your long term goals?
To have my brand instantly recognizable and desirable.

When is the deadline for final entries before choosing a designer?
October 22, midnight MST

Audience Profile:
Please describe your existing audience
My ideal client appreciates the arts, has teen children, or grown children with grandchildren. They are not very active on social media. Most of them are women but I do have loyal men clients as well. They are college-graduates and love the outdoors. They are looking for a professional to do the work for them.

Who would you like to add to your audience?
More of the same.

Perception/Tone/Guidelines:
What type of logo would you like?
I don't really want a signature-type logo. I'd like something more graphic.

Do you have any colors in mind for your logo? (if so, why?)
I don't have specific colors in mind, but I want to incorporate the seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter) and colors should directly bring these to mind.

Do you have any specific images or icons in mind that you would definitely like to see incorporated into your logo?
Possibly icons that bring to mind the seasons - flowers, snowflakes, sun rays, leaves, etc... I'm not 100% set on this, though as I want the logo to look professional and not cheesy.

Communication Strategy:
What attributes would you like your logo to reflect about your business?
It should reflect the high-end artistic style of my portraits. I pay special attention to details and composition, and the logo should also do this.

What is your tagline or slogan?
"Art for Every Season"

What is the overall message you are trying to convey to your target audience?
They are going to get a customized, full service portrait experience with great customer service.

Where will your new logo be used?
Website, Stationery, Business cards, print packaging

Competitive Positioning:
Who are your competitors and what do you think about their logos?
Most photographers are using "signature" type logos, that all look similar.

List competitive URLs if possible
http://www.lindsaysalazar.com/
http://www.donpolo.com/
http://www.fausetphotography.com/#!/HOME

What sets you apart from your competitors?
I am a full-service photographer who offers printed portraits that are well-planned and customized to each individual and family. I have over 20 years of experience and continue to educate myself in technical and artistic aspects of the business. I will go to my clients' homes to meet with them. I spend a lot of time finding really beautiful, scenic locations.

Targeted Message:
State a single-minded word or phrase that will appropriately describe your company:
Professional Service and Highest Quality

nhr - I like your three designs but I don't know if I want the symbols to be quite so literal. Is there any way to make them a little more abstract? I don't like the face on the third, but I do like the overall design and concept. Can I see that third one with a different symbol than a face? Also, coincidentally, these are all very similar to my current logo. I was hoping for something fresh and updated, but I'm not sure exactly what that entails. A friend of mine said it this way, and I like her response: "I don't love the little season boxes. It feels too literal and not high-end and classy like you are. I wonder if they could do something with a tree that has leaves on one side and not the other or something a little more abstract like you were saying to represent the seasons..."

Here is a link to my current logo for reference: [IMG] photo krisdoman160603.jpg[/IMG]

artwiki: I really like the direction you are going, but it's a bit too busy. I want something a little more simplified and graphic. Can you also put my name and title above the ground line, and the tag line under the ground line?

UPDATE: I actually really love the tree, and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback on your design. Can you put the seasons in opposite order, though? From spring on the left to winter on the right, with the blowing leaves leading into my name? Also, can you make the purple leaves actual blossoms, and maybe fewer leaves overall?

Thanks so much to everyone who has spent time to enter. I really like the tree as a theme in the last few entries. nhr: I love the tree idea, but the one above is just too full and busy. I'd like something a little more simplified and iconic. im3d: I like the tree in the square, but it looks too much like the Microsoft logo. I'm sure it's the colors that are making me think that. artwiki: I am leaning towards your design at this point, but to give any other designers a chance, I will wait until the 22nd this month to make the final decision. I'd love to see more tree ideas if anyone has them. Thanks again - you are all so talented!

Hello. I envisioned the leaf in this logo changing colors depending on what season it is. Or have a different color leaf on different sections of your website...

Thanks for the revisions, imd3 and artwiki. Glypica, I really like the tree, but I am still looking for something much more simple, and I feel like the second one is too far from my brand. By far, my favorite is the one by you, Taldo. I really like the simplicity and high-end feel! The icon is great, and I really like those fonts.
