I need a logo for an adventure travel blog. The brand name is ‘in the name of adventure .com. It’s geared towards people whose aspirations of adventure override their instinctive need for comfort or safety–bare bones, warts-and-all sort of stuff. Having said that, I don't want anything too loud or overbearing. Less Bear Grylls/Survivor, more backpacker/free spirited vibe. Given that it’s a blog, I’d like a logo with a personal feel – less glossy and commercial, more stylised/artistic.
Although the brand name is a URL, I’d like at least some spacing between ‘in the name of adventure .com’ (perhaps with the ‘.com’ directly beneath and in smaller text as seems to be fairly common). As for the layout, I’d prefer an image followed by text rather than the all-in-one style logo. One minor dilemma is that the logo has to fit into a space of 480 x 100 pixels (which could be a bit of a challenge give the length of the name).
Stylistically, I’d like the logo to be black and white (white background). The usual travel-related images (globes, planes, mountains) will suffice although something more creative would be ideal–I’m open to suggestion. I’m quite keen on some sort of eroded texture (examples below) given that the blog is about travelling rough. Again, the font should be fairly informal…perhaps even cursive/handwritten. Just suggestions though. I’ll happily consider all creative input.
Cheers. Please feel free to message me.
