We need the logo to contain something regarding cleaning. We were thinking a broom and a mop crossing. They shouldn’t be colored, but be the solid profile of the objects. Outline of these objects: http://wikiclipart.com/broom-clipart_23513/, in this style: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.co…b618e5.jpg.
We like some of the mountain designs, in particular the ones that used the real mountains as the profile (this is an example from a designer from an earlier round: https://99designs.com/logo-business…ntries/79). If you choose to use mountains, please make sure they are modeled after the real deal. Here are more images of the Sandias from various angles (but we do like the profile submitted earlier by message): https://www.google.com/search?q=san…ns+sunset&
There are many business in Albuquerque with the word Sandia in the name. The designs that had very large fonts for just the word Sandia may be confusing for prospects. We’d like the 3 words of Sandia Green Clean to be of equal size and emphasis. So that it will be easier to discern that we are a cleaning company.
The slogan has been revised to “Claim Your Weekend”, instead of reclaim.
If possible, incorporate a leaf into the text somehow/where. We thought of a dot for the i in Sandia, or maybe one of the A’s.
For the colors, we like turquoise and yellow. The greens may work better as lime green, something fresh as in “fresh and clean”. Here is the state license plate for instance: https://www.google.com/search?q=lea…nse+plate&
We’d like the logo to be enclosed. We saw a good designs with a hexagon, a diamond, or a circle. The shape isn’t particular. The enclosure/outline could contain the broom and mop profiles (instead of the cross).
The logo will eventually be embroidered or screen printed on uniforms, so please keep that in mind when using smaller fonts.
The mountains need to reflect the actual Sandia mountains in some way or another. The company is named after a mountain range called the Sandias. It means watermelon in Spanish (please don't use watermelons in the design). Here's an image of the mountain range: https://b.thumbs.redditmedia.com/G2…MDNmuc.png. Feel free to incorporate the outline into the design.
Also, this is our first contest on 99 Designs, but we're hoping to form a relationship with the winning designer to work on future efforts that will include vehicle decals, car toppers, door hangers, and other marketing materials in the near future.
