I extended this contest because I just wasn't seeing enough of what I wanted so I also edited this brief. Please bring new ideas to the table!
My design should be beautiful, refined, sophisticated, and a bit mysterious (not hokey, overdone, or immature). I want an inspired feeling - so that people can sense the power of the environment I'm trying to create through my work. People coming to my shop should feel carried away to another time and place and empowered, inspired, and emotionally transformed. There is an ancient tribal element to what I'm doing too - native and indigenous in a way that is still feminine, curious, and sexy. My target audience is middle-aged (often wealthy) women who want to be inspired to become more beautiful, elegant, and mysterious. They should look at this logo and think I WANT THAT.
Please err on the side of simplicity; one thing I definitely don't want is for my logo to look like a tacky tattoo. This is my brand and it's critical to me that it capture the earthy sophistication of my work. Please see my etsy shop so that what you create echoes my own vision of beauty.
Fonts are really important to me. Nothing too stock, and nothing too scripty or overdone. I want something unusual and I like to see multiple options. Please, no funky stars or crystals.
Thank you so much in advance for your work. I hope you're inspired too. I love to convo so if you have question let me know.
