Today I would like to ask your advice on finalizing a logo for a service I will be offering soon. Photo restoration is a very important service and something I feel very strongly about. I can’t say exactly why I got away from it but I am jumping back into it this year. I am brushing up on my skills and I am also volunteering for a not for profit organization called Operation Photo Rescue.
I started a logo prototype right before the holidays and now I am looking at color ideas and any other advice anyone cares to offer. I went for a retro look as I am sure many of the projects I will take on will involve photos from days long gone by. The original prototype above is a gray scale image which is how I work. I first work only in black and white (and gray). Then once the structural design is finished I work with color schemes.
Above are my initial color ideas. I also changed the sparkle graphic in the logo from the original. Color scheme 1 uses brown tones to indicate an old style, sephia toned photograph. Color schemes 2 and 3 use blue as the dominant color. I like the blue as it represents to me the idea of cleaning, and freshness. But, I also gravitate toward blue colors and fear my personal preference might override a better color solution.
So let em know what you think!
