NoteSummit: The Premiere
Investor education company in the financial services industry hosting a series of events to help "level the playing field" between institutional money managers and entrepreneurial investors. This is the premiere event of its kind - targeting a new breed of investor altogether.
1. The Millionaire Next Door: educated, hard-working, individualistic, iconoclastic investor looking for an informational and strategic "edge" in order to create an income stream different than he/she is used to.
2. The Opportunist: hungry, shot down by corporate America, looking for the new new thing - but is a little cautious about taking risks, likes to see proof that something works before trying it.
3. The Pro: "in the game" already, and looking to perfect his strategy, network with like-minded denizens of the "Note Investor" crowd
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.
