HI! I am starting my own consulting firm after 12 years in the industry. I am located on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. The west coast of Canada. I grew up here but have been away for a long while and have now relocated back. My original thought for a logo was a windswept arbutus tree on an island, with water, waves and stylized "wind' illustrated some way. I still like that concept but I am open to different interpretations of that theme or brand new ideas. Could drop the island and ocean and just have a tree in the wind, not sure- looking for creative designs that communicate my vision. Key is illustrating wind and west somehow- The logo should be clean, effective, not too busy, and evoke feelings of trust, competence, maturity and nature. Font to work with Office 365.
In addition to the use on business card and logo for web and documents, the logo could be used for screened or embroidered clothing. Also of note, I will be a member of an organization called 1% for the planet. As such I commit 1% of my gross revenue to be allocated to environmental causes. Their logo will be featured on my card.
I know turn this over to the creative 99D community to create something that inspires me, creates strong brand recognition, and looks fantastic!
