I am a writer with an interest in producing an online magazine/blog. My main intentions are to inform people about the importance of buying products made in America, but I will also be doing a lot of historical/economical/religious and political (Conservative, Libertarian) commentary. What I hope to capture in this logo is "the spirit of America". I would prefer an eagle, but if someone has any other creative or fresh ideas, I am willing to entertain them. Ultimately, the logo will have to be something that can catch the eye of anyone (including a child), so some kind of animated character would be best. I personally had an eagle in mind clawing onto the title "The Patriot" aggressively looking down at something to pounce on. This logo will ultimately be part of a web-site banner so theoretically the script below the logo would be what the eagle would be eyeing. Also, I ironically found the golden eagle more pleasing to the eye than the bald eagle, so if someone would like to take some artistic liberty and use the golden eagle with the colors of the bald eagle, by all means do so. Just as long as the logo fits the theme and the character looks memorable and aggressive, I will be happy.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
An audience of all ages will be viewing the material, but most likely the audience will be very patriotic, more male than female and Conservative/Libertarian by nature.
The logo must contain the title "The Patriot Online" (emphais on the words "The Patriot") and it will also have to contain some kind of animated character (preferably an eagle that looks original, eye catching and threatening).
