Company or website name

Place Narration

Slogan or Tagline

Global Voice Artist

Describe your company and organization and target audience

The website is Place Narration, but I would like the logo to just be my name, with the tagline below. I am a Voice Artist that does professional voice overs for commercials, videos, eLearning, infographics, multimedia presentations, phone prompts, audiobooks and other professional voice projects that require a female voice.

The design should have the following

THE LOGO: I\'d like it to include elements that are not just words, but play together with the words well. Perhaps a symbolic girl w a microphone, just a microphone, audiowaves or something else cool that communicates or even just symbolizes what I do in a simplified way. I\'d like it to communicate a cool/hip/vintage feel, but also the fact that I am a global professional and worthy of high budget projects (so not silly). I\'d like it to be simple in a way, (I like Evernote\'s logo a lot because of it\'s symbolic style), and to communicate simplicity. By looking at the logo, one should have a very good guess that I am a female voice artist (with a great eye for branding). ;] I would like the words, my name and the tagline, to be somehow made a part of the logo, so it\'s cohesive and not completely separate. Perhaps part of a microphone cord or audio waves play into the words (just an idea, but yours will probably be leagues better than mine)! COLORS: Because the color line wouldn\'t let me right more than a few characters. Here is my full answer for colors: I might like red accents, turquoise accents, vintage-y colors, dark blue accents, but am VERY open to going the vintage-y browns/colors route OR sticking with something that would match the current site. Either would be A-ok. I do like it when primary colors and non-primaries work together with little accents here and there, but not something that looks like a rainbow. In short, I am NOT hard set on colors. I\'d like to see different options, and want to be open-minded to see your (much better) design sense(s) than me! Hopefully the many logos I added in the Dropbox link above will be great inspiration. THANK YOU for participating in this contest! LOGOS I LIKE: I attached a zip file and labeled most of the files with notes in their titles/file names! :] Please find the link here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ezxgjs4eks1d574/Logos%20I%20like.zip This is my site: http://placenarration.com (I know nothing like the logos I\'ve attached. I will change my colors to match whatever the logo ends up being. I just liked the tin cans image, so matched my colors to that for now). I love the vintage-y look of the imagery on this site. Just sharing. http://www.spoteditorial.com/ The logos (and the notes I added in their file titles), that I\'ve attached on the DropBox link above, show MUCH more what I\'m going for and hope to achieve though! Please take a look at them all, if you don\'t mind. FILE DELIVERY: I\'d like the logo to be able to be animated later down the line, so my partner (who\'s an animator) can do something fun with it. I guess this just means I need a layered file. :]
