MILA’S FOUNTAIN relies heavily on thematic imagery. Mila, the guardian of the waterfall, is part of an elusive race called "celestials" - immortal beings who come from the stars. They are a secluded race who are intimately connected with the natural world, particularly water. We are therefore looking for elegant cosmic and/or water imagery to be incorporated into the logo. We've had previous designs that incorporate a mixture of this imagery into the "O" of the word "Fountain" (as illustrated in the uploaded graphic). This is an idea we have come to like.
In addition, we are looking for a font that stands out and is unique. Our series is fantasy, but not "typical" fantasy (i.e., not cliche - we don’t want something that looks like we are trying to be LORD OF THE RINGS, for example). It's a dark series with an occasionally threatening and dangerous mood, and is beautifully executed with a focus on sleek, sophisticated filmmaking - something we want to emulate in the logo. We very much like the font of the uploaded graphic, but need someone to take the text to the next level and a evocative official logo. And hey, if you have other ideas... we are, of course, game to see them!
We've also attached two photos to give you an idea of our aesthetic. One is a makeup test we've done for Mila, the other is our waterfall location with the wanderer in silhouette.
