Based on our polling numbers of a select group of business owners, images with a business person did better than images with a Rhino. So, we are definitely open to ideas that don't have a Rhino head at all and have more of a feel towards "chat" and "boss" to them.
An idea for the "Chat" part: Somehow I'd like to incorporate email, SMS Text and a phone call in the logo as we use all three when we follow up with potential customers thru conversational marketing. It's all about starting that conversation so maybe there are three different chat bubbles that overlap with one for each.
For the Boss part: Thinking a suit and tie or somehow showing authority. Maybe even a Mob Boss type of design.
We are going to need the logo designed in such a way that it can be put on Hats, shirts, jackets, etc. So, small gaps or little thin pieces don't transfer well to printed materials, so please leave out of the designs.
The logo needs to be able to be put in solid black or white so it can be used in a variety of different backgrounds so shading isn't necessary.
Wildcard: If nothing like what I described above gets your creative juices flowing, then design something else that comes to your mind when you think "Chat Boss". I'm open to new ideas!!
