This project is two-fold. The first part is creating three logos (they can be similar to each other) centering around three blogs: Curious Gus (for this blog that will be moved to WordPress - http://wwwstuswoodworks.blogspot.com), Gus' Guild (http://gusguild.stuswoodworks.com), and Collecting Gus (still to be developed. Will be focused on collecting Arts and Crafts furniture. Will have a similar look to the other two blogs). We would like the logos to be similar to each other yet stand on their own. The second part is creating a character/icon to represent "Gus". Gus is based on Gustav Stickley (http://www.stickleymuseum.org/craft…ckley.html). We are not looking to recreate him in cartoon form, but would like something that represents him and his legacy to use as a "mascot" which would be part of the logos and as an independent image within the blogs. Please stay within the same color groups as represented on http://www.stuswoodworks.com and http://gusguild.stuswoodworks.com. We would also like to keep the same font, if possible, used in the current Gus' Guild logo (attached to this brief) which is Nickley (http://www.urbanfonts.com/fonts/Nickley.htm)
