The logo of "NoteSummit: The Premiere" has to communicate
Sponsors will be looking to a high level of sophistication from the people attending this event (and future Note Summits)
2) Simple and Strong
A bit of a bare-bones type logo - the kind that can be emblazoned onto a high-quality leather padfolio or fine pen - with bold letters that stand out clearly from a distance, or on a 10-foot wide banner on a stage
Investing right means investing smart - and there are a lot of scams out there. The NoteSummit is an event where you can admire who you meet and trust what you learn.
After all, this is the first event of its kind. This needs to balance against the need for trustworthiness - radical designs beware - this will be a brand that people will grow to recognize and revere. Attendance will be mandatory for any and all who consider themselves novices or cognoscenti. Think of Warren Buffett's annual Omaha event - except in this case it will be reverence more for the event, the panelists and participants, rather than of a single individual.
We have no idea what logos to emulate this off of, but be aware that logos in our circle of companies include http://www.notebuyingprofits.com, and the notekruncher logo in an earlier project.
Your excellence and creative brilliance is welcome.
