AFTER 3 DAYS OF EXCELLENT SUBMISSIONS, I AM REVISING MY DESIGN BRIEF AND EXTENDING THIS CONTEST FOR 9 DAYS, FOCUSING ON AN ENTIRELY NEW APPROACH. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO SUBMIT HUNDREDS OF GREAT DESIGNS, THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME CLARIGY MY VISION. PLEASE USE THE ATTACHED IMAGES AS A GUIDE ONLY. The fifth element (of the alchemical 5 elements of earth, air, water, fire and the void) is called "quintessence," which is an empty space where creation emerges. I am a life coach and hand reader who specializes in 4 types (elements) of coaching: relationship (love), stress management (life), meaning and purpose (vision, life path). I have 4 "subsidiary" brands (4 elements), each with a distinct logo and brand identity: (Relationship Remodel , Intimacy Insights, Peace of Mind, Pathways to Purpose). I am creating 5th Element Coaching as a general website that will link to these individual offerings.) Target audience: Men and woman ages 25 - 65. Demographic: urban, suburban, middle and upper middle class. Races & Cultures: All Mindset: Open to holistic, and progressive/alternative thought.
The design should have the following
ALL DESIGNS MUST INCLUDE a FULL CIRCLE Zen brush stroke (SEE ATTACHED IMAGES AS A GUIDE, NOT TO COPY DIRECTLY) either empty in the center, or with limited imagery. (See attached PDF for stock image companies). • Simplicity. NO fonts or details that won’t reduce. (Past submissions had fonts so small they would not be seen on a business card) • Two (2) contrasting blended colors that can transfer to grayscale or one color. • San-serif fonts, large and clear enough to reduce to business card size • 5TH ELEMENT on 1 (one) line, COACHING underneath. • Tag line LOVE • LIFE • MEANING • PURPOSE on the line below 5TH ELEMENT COACHING
