Feel free to be as creative as you like. I am looking to be inspired! Keep it simple and not too detailed. Play around with colours. I like the colours listed above but am open to new ideas.
Please incorporate the tagline, ‘Mind + Body’. I would like a logo that will work with the tagline and without it.
I want the logo to convey the feel of a luxury brand but also health, wellness, pampering and indulgence.
‘Shamata’ (also spelt shamatha) is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘calm abiding’ and I would like the calm feeling to be reflected in the logo. ‘Shamata Meditation’ (or ‘shamatha meditation’) is a kind of Tibetan Buddhist Meditation and it would be great if the logo could have a link with that or represent east meets west. Ideas that I’ve had include a Lotus flower or a Bodhi tree but they’re just my ideas. This ‘east meets west’ idea is not essential but it may help with some inspiration or creative ideas.
I had a play with the lotus flower idea myself and have attached two examples. This concept isn't quite there - I'm not in love with it - but thought it might help.
I am hoping that one of you talented designers out there can make this happen! I look forward to seeing your creations. Thank you in advance.
