I would first like to state that, I am looking for a logo as a brand, not just my business name. Therefore I want an image & overall design that can be trademarked.
Ailm is A in the Celtic Ogham alphabet, but more importantly the symbolism of Ailm has to do with healing of the soul, as well as protection, general healing, purification, guidance, pure energy, clarity, good health, integrity, & objectivity. It is assumed to mean conifer/silver fir or pine & is represented with a cross inside a circle.
Esse is in reference to essential oils & essence.
Ailm is pronounced A-lum & when you say Ailm & Esse it sounds a little like illuminous.
I am very partial to a more hand drawn look as opposed to computer generated images.
Pine cone representation also has a great symbolic meaning. If incorporating the pine cone, the important part to capture is the spiral pattern it creates when you look down on it. This is the important symbolism.
A logo that resembles a stamp, or seal is a design that I have a strong preference for. I like the words to be part of the image in some way, not written out next to an image that is floating above or around it.
Celtic references, such as Celtic knot work would be a relevant inclusion in the logo.
Incorporating a tree such as the conifer/fir/pine would be a nice symbolic reference to Ailm.
Straight lines are not my preference. I prefer curved, arabesque lines, & circles.
Block font is not what I am looking for. I would like to see a softer script style of font.
As to color I would like the logo to have a glowing effect if possible.
