Ivan Amodei - Entertainer/Comedian/Magician
Ivan Amodei is a brilliant magician/comedian and entertainer that has won every award possible for his craft. He entertains mostly corporate clients and celebrities and comedy and magic clubs, and theaters all over the world. We are going to re-design his website and need a icon, unique logo design as a foundation to all the rest of the materials.
Ivan is considered to be the best in his field at his craft.
Want a high-end logo look targeting corporate clients/celebrities and high income clients for personal appearances and shows.
A logo that could be used on materials to sell too (DVDs, Hats, Shirts, etc).
A fun, energetic, dynamic, looking logo, (NOT DARK or gothic like Blaine and Angel) that conveys originality and energy.
We would like to see a text based logo with a unique icon with it. Where they icon could be used and identified separately too. One could play around with the intitials (IA). Something unusual, different and something when someone sees it can say, now that is cool and different.
Imagine a iconic image or graphic that could be projected on a theater curtain before the show begins.
A few uses of that in the same space are http://www.davidblaine.com, his (DB) crissangel.com his use of the (A).
We like http://www.pennandteller.com. It has a unique element of how they used the ampersand sign.
We like http://www.celinedion.com
We like http://www.michaelbuble.com
We like the upper scale feel of Oprah's logo too. See attachment below.
We do NOT want sterotypical magic props used (bunnies, wands, cards, suits to cards, etc.
Currently his old website is http://www.ivanamodei.com. It will be re-designed after a logo is selected.
Masculine colors such as blue, dark blue, black, etc could be used. Logo should be easily understandable as a Black/White version.
We have uploaded some logo idea and as you can see we tend to like/want some sort of line art image too that can become an iconic style to use as well.
Samnple 249.gif is very interesting too.
The duo formosi -big.pnd is also very nice since it gives a feel of invisibility but simplicity and classy at the same time.
Avani logo large.pnd is we really like the stylistic lettering. Does NOT look like a font. But the use of the ribbon to finish off the missing elements in the fonts is creative. The lettering is simple, clean and easy to read.
