The attached screenshot is just something we thought might work well in some shape or form, but is in no way mandatory :-)
We like the idea of using black and red, maybe blue, but we're open to any other suggestions.
We're thinking of a shape that's more square than rectangular (see attached logo's).
It would be great if you could incorporate a guitar somewhere in the logo.
Our target market is young adults, though our customer list varies from teens to middle-aged. We would like to use the logo on Facebook, so something that can incorporate well into a profile pic of 200 x 600 (so a horizontal banner shape won't work).
Since we're a guitar tuition site our target audience are all obviously interested in music, more contemporary style than anything else.
We quite like Emblem style logos.
It's important that the logo looks really professional but that it's not way too serious. The Coetzee AV logo that I've attached is one of our other companies and we love the style and overall attitude of the logo, so something in that direction would be great. It's cool, a bit daring and I like the attitude of it.
We need a logo that's classic, yet bold and powerful.
I hope that makes sense! :-)
P.S. We would need the source files .psd's etc of the winning design.
