I'd like to use the logo on business cards, stationary, as well as for signage. I plan on using this logo indefinitely, so I would like the logo to say we are a "big clinic" when/if I get the chance to expand to other locations in the state of Georgia. As for colors, I'd like to stay away from green as the sole/dominant color, although incorporating green with a combo is fine. I think having blue as a color would be good. For the logo itself, I'd prefer to have a white background, but for the business card/stationary, anything goes.
There are three different approaches/angles to the logo, but if possible, I would prefer angle #1:
1) A classy, regal, and traditional approach, one that conveys a well established business. (I'm not sure if this would work, but I've seen some businesses use a coat of arms? If you guys think of other ways to convey the classy, traditional approach, please try it out, I'm very open to all ideas). (preferred option).
2) A more modern approach. (Possibly using a spine in a modern, fresh way? Also perhaps involve some of the letters or all the words in the business name into part of the design?)
3) I'm not sure how this approach would turn out, but I was thinking there could be a "Georgia" angle. For example, you could possibly incorporate a peach, etc.
I know these 3 different approaches may seem like polar opposites, but I've seen the logos you guys have created on this site, and I can't wait to see how you guys approach the different angles. Thanks in advance!
(AI or PSD file preferred--thanks!!)
