We would like a simple, recognizable logo, that shows we sell auto parts. We are looking for a logo that incorporates our business name and also has a strong visual representation of what our business does. "Mike's" should be highlighted whereas "foreign" needs to be downplayed as we sell both foreign and domestic car parts.
"Mike's" "MIKE'S" "MKS" "MiKe'S" "MiKE'S" may be used. In most designs I have seen, the "I" gets lost when all caps are used in MIKE'S.
Incorporation of the recycling symbol with into an automotive design is desirous. We are located in Southern California in Wilmington (between LA and Long Beach) so a beach wave (car surfing), sunset, car driving into/away from sunset, or state of CA with a car or car parts would be interesting.
We also deliver and ship over 90% of our parts so perhaps car parts/car on a delivery truck or with wings shows we send the parts to our customers. (ex. large "Mike's" on back of a truck, small "Foreign" spaced underneath and medium "Auto Parts" between the wheels.
Another idea for our beach area location could be a shark fin or a shark itself to tie into our SoCal location.
