We're looking for a fairly simple, uncomplicated and uncluttered logo shaped somewhat like this one:
What I mean by that is that we're looking for the centerpiece / universally recognizable part of our logo to be the emblem above our company name, as opposed to a company name that's tied into the logo. More examples of what I mean:
Now, more specifically, we'd like the emblem to be a lifelike medieval sword clutched in a fist pointing upwards and to the side, like so:
Alittle bit more upwards though, as in "that way, TO WAR!" Also, thesword should be a little thicker (not of an unrealistic or cartoonish size though)as to have a more imposing presence that wouldlook good as an emblem.
Oh and we also need a nice business card to put the logo on, so please include that too, but focus on making the logo: it's easy to just put a good logo on a nice business card template. :)
