Did a 180 to test the waters with my logo. My only vehicle is a Vespa and I work at client's homes, so the logo makes sense locally. Not sure if it makes sense for my web presence. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Simpler, cleaner version:
Murphy's Hub is the name of my freelance business that I am starting on the side of my full-time job as a photography studio manager. I love helping people fix their iPhones, iPads, Macs, iTunes, iPhoto, but it is time I start charging for my time as I am getting very busy on the weekends and nights 'volunteering' as a personal digital concierge. Therefore, I have decided to brand myself and I am launching a companion website broken down into three main services:
1. Concierge (consulting), Education (tips & tricks) . This is the part where I personally help people figure things out and educate people to get the most enjoyment out of their iDevices, etc.
2. Design. I am very proficient in Photoshop (learning Illustrator) and I want to offer pixel design services: album design, greeting cards, flyers, business cards, layouts, etc.
3. Web Design. Ramping up on my web design skills and this will be the last part of the puzzle.
I love typography and vintage, simple old signs, etc. My business is technology, but I want to create a logo that is true to my design style and personal taste. I like simple and clean, but love subtle, clever design elements. I want to create a logo that mixes the vintage style of this course, but somehow make it apparent that my business is helping people.
I have attached several concepts of logos, but I am stuck. I would love some feedback or suggestions. I have been using fonts from Lost Type Co-Op (Geared, Edmund Sands, Wisdom, Mission, etc). My Illustrator skills are getting better (thanks to this course & lynda.com), but I am determined to create a final logo mark that I am happy with. Looking forward to any help. Thanks.
