We require a new logo for our music store: "Macron Music"
We are running a music shop, that is the market leader in our area of 300,000 people 50km north of Sydney/Australia:
http://www.macronmusic.com.au (founded in 1977)
The immediate reason for updating our logo is the opening of a new large store and that our logo is now 33 years old and also a bit hard to read on light boxes.
We are going to move to a new location "Mega store" with double floor space (800m2) and the addition of a large music school with 12 individual teaching rooms and an auditorium.
Where will logo be used?:
1) Light boxes at the road on shop front etc. Large signs on shop-front
2) Stationary, catalogues etc.
3) and very important: There will be a 4 meter (14 foot) high guitar at the road front.( Will look like a Hard Rock Cafë guitar sign) -- Logo should look good on guitar!
4) Another important point to know is the meaning of the word MACRON: It is the name for an accent over vowels. It is ahorizontal bar over a letter:
That could lead to an idea to use the ā in the logo.
Ā,or ā, is a grapheme, a Latin A with a macron, is used in several orthographies. e.g. mācron music
The attached file "BIG GUITAR needs Macron logo" is not the real guitar but just a photoshopped imagination of how it could look.
In regard to clip art, I also love something with a star or percussion instrument in it
