We have an 80% completed redo of our website. You can see it at http://unionchoice.wpengine.com. There is a placeholder logo there using the red and blue colors specified. We would be open to ideas similar to this one (except professional, LOL).
We also really like the logo for the Atlanta United soccer team. You can see the logo in the header of their website: https://www.atlutd.com.
We DO NOT want to use a shield as many law enforcement officers find it offensive when vendors attempt to incorporate a shield.
I am also attaching a copy of the NRA logo. It has a similar feel as the Atlanta United logo. It stays away from the shield but has a similar vibe.
I've also attached the logo we use for another division that does mortgages that we had designed here on 99D. We're very happy with the result of that one and feel it conveys some of the same feeling we are looking for here.
Law enforcement officers are looking for stable, strong, steady, trustworthy partners to trust with their finances. We like clean modern design, but it can't be too far in that direction. It needs to look clean and timeless.
The Corporate name is Union Choice Enterprises BUT we operate under different dba's. Union Choice Financial, Union Choice Realty, Union Choice Luxury. It's important that we can have one logo that features Union Choice but can include the other dba name (financial, realty, luxury, etc).
We are also open to any spectacular ideas you may have. We have an idea of what we want but if you come up with something great, we would like to see it.
