I have attached a few examples of EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Please be sure to look so you can save yourself a lot of time.
My logo needs to look like it could be the sister publication to any major newspaper (think Wall Street Times, Washington Post, etc.) so think: PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATION.
However, as you can see in the two attached examples for "Metropolitan Minute" the designer took a great professional, newsprint-looking font then added the faint cityscape in the background! AWESOME--Just what I'm looking for--except it needs to be something related to weight loss....
In the other two examples for "Hometown News" and "Florida Today" the designer used a bird for the "H" and in a solar looking thing for the "O". I like this concept too. So if you have some creative idea around it that's cool.
I'm considering adding the tagline: Lose Weight, Not Energy so if you want to include that, I think that would be good.
Things I like: Black and Red colors, crisp, bold fonts, easy to read...
Things I don't like: Nothing "cute" or "trying to be funny", no images of snoring people, again I really want it to be as professional and look newsworthy and as credible as possible.
Thanks so much and please let me know if you have any questions!
P.S.-- I'm planning to redo the entire site to be more information based, so what I have up now is not what the new design will be like at all...
