The Thinking Man's Logic

Describe your company and organization and target audience

My company is based around philosophy teachings. As of now, I mainly deal with producing video lectures but I will soon be advancing to books and merch. My Close-Minded Philosophy logic, is a critical thinking concept where adherents take into account different aspects of a situation before committing to acting on/believing in it.
In short, my followers dont merely go with the flow without weighing their decisions against their own ethics, morals, values etc.

The design should have the following

I definitely want the logo to convey a concept, I am very "open" and unattached to any particular ideas so have at it. It should have the words "Close-Minded Philosophy" in/on it. Im not opposed to a graphic of the mind, however, Im not married to it.
This is definitely a contest of creativity.
My philosophy concept is about paying close attention to what goes into your mind. Its NOT about being opposed to new things. It merely looks at new things thru a filter before obliging.

This logo will be used for

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
  • Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)

This design should not have this in the entries

Close-Minded Philosophy dosent mean that your not open to new ideas, so no handcuffs or dead bolt locks, etc. because that gives the wrong impression. My company is about analyzing ideas before committing to them NOT being shut off from new thoughts/learning. So nothing that looks depriving will work.

Colors to use in the design

I would like to see a copy of all submissions (1) in color (1) in black & white.
