We're an entertainment development & production company looking for a funky, modern, minimalist logo for Siren Features, LLC. The logo can just use the word "Siren". The term is described here, on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siren. We're looking for something clean and simple, not too ornate. We'll need to use it on a website, business cards, letterhead, etc.
We would like something minimalist - so in that sense modern - but since the term (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siren) has classic origins, some classic touches would be nice. I'll leave it up to the designers - I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity. We think it's a fun, beautiful name, and the logo should be in keeping with that sense of it.
Wikipedia description (but I'd recommend visiting the page - pretty interesting):
In Greek mythology, the Sirens (Greek singular: Σειρήν Seirēn; Greek plural: Σειρῆνες Seirēnes) were three dangerous bird-women, portrayed as seductresses
Sailors who sailed near were compelled by the Sirens' enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast.
The sirens of Greek mythology are sometimes portrayed in later folklore as mermaid-like; in fact, some languages use the same word for both bird and fish creatures, such as the Maltese word 'sirena'.
The term "siren song" refers to an appeal that is hard to resist but that, if heeded, will lead to a bad result.
- Siren should be written somewhere, but nothing is etched in stone. I'm just looking for something inspiring.
- It should condense well - so it looks good on a business card (that's next).
Updated: I like some of the one's I've rated - 2 in particular. What might be interesting is something kind of like a cross between the starbucks woman and Munch's scream (http://www.oxideradio.co.uk/shows/c…ian_music/)
- A logo too ornate.
