I am looking to have a brand symbol created, not so much a word logo. Feel free to include a word logo if you are inspired to do so, but the symbol is the priority. The overall image of the brand is to look clean and sophisticated, but in a way that still embodies art and creativity. As far as colors, stick to black and white as much as you can.
I have include an image of examples that are close to what I am looking for and can be used for inspiration. Use those images instead of the references from the site. The idea is for the symbol to be of a wallflower flower, you decide how literal or abstract it looks; some of the example images display both. I would like it to have smooth single lines, not too many sharp edges. No chunky or boxy shapes. I also like the idea of including a framed box or circle around the flower, like in a few of the example images. Use your judgement if you think it needs that. The actual flower can be of just the flower pedals or also include a stem, I am completely open to both.
For what it's worth, my favorite example is the 5th one from the left...top row. It has palm trees in the background, but just focus on the symbol of it. I also originally thought I wanted this symbol to be based around the golden ratio, but I am not sure any more if it is necessary. Feel free to give that a shot if you would like.
