The logo graphic needs to work with a somewhat lengthy name: “Southside Place Animal Hospital” but we also want the graphic to be able to stand alone (i.e. look good if we just use the image without the text.)
-We think that a more square shaped logo is preferable to a long rectangular one, but are open to any ideas
-We’d like a dog and cat, and ideally a paw-print incorporated into the design
-We trend towards more modern and clean-cut, not "cutesy" or whimsical
-If multi-colored, I’d also like the graphic to look good when rendered in mono-chrome.
-The logo will be used on business cards and letterhead, but we also plan on doing lots of local sponsorships, so the logo with name will also be appearing on lots of banners, tee-shirts, etc—we need it to be appropriately proportioned so that the logo is eye-catching but the name is also legible.
-I am attaching a word file that contains the above notes plus several images that I found on-line that appeal to me. I probably like the first 2 logos the most.
