I've been working on a bunch of different ideas for a company I work for called Balyolu (www.balyolu.com) for a new logo. Balyolu leads walking tours in Northeastern Turkey that are centered around food and honey tasting experiences in rural areas. It's a social business. The profits that are generated through the tourism company are reinvested into the rural communities where Balyolu works - helping to start small scale women's businesses around honey, wax, and other bee related products (i.e. cosmetics).
I've struggled a lot with designing a logo. We'd like it to be round so it can fit on round products like lip glosses and honey jars. It should convey that it is a modern company but with roots in history, that it is about travel and movement, and that it is in the east. It should be bold, easy to read, and timeless.
