Thoughts / Ideas / Characteristics / Themes for the logo:
* Finland and Finnish (color scheme is navy blue and white - check out the Finnish flag)
* skier and skiing - check out the sample logo
* playful and a little quirky (this is a video game company after all)
* would like a small stylized human character integrated into the logo to act as a mascot for future marketing and branding
* the human character should be stylized in a manner similar to a city informational sign (i.e. like the character in a bathroom, toilet or handicapped sign)
* optional: smoking (not directly illustrated but stylized via bubbles so as to not promote smoking itself) - note: the bubbles sometimes throws off the visual balance of the logo so this is optional
* need 3 logos in total: 1) a logo that DOES NOT say the full name of "Turunen Games" (incorporating just the "T" of Turunen perhaps); 2) a logo of the entire name "Turunen Games"; 3) a logo that combines the 2 logos above
* the winning design will likely be converted into follow-on work - a powerpoint template, a business card template and 1-page website splash page will all be required in the near future
* IMPORTANT NOTE: Have a concept that breaks any/all of the above requirements but is totally cool? I definitely want to see it!
