We are looking for a playful illustration of a pit bull head. We are not looking for a cartoon type of drawing but can use simple lines and shading. We are only looking for a head illustration and do not want the full body of a dog. The dog should not portray any of the negative connotations that are sometimes associated with pit bulls including such things as snarling teeth, aggressive look, cropped ears, spiked collars, etc. Playful characteristics such as a round eyes, large smile, floppy ears and tongue would be ideal. Although the word 'Love' is in the rescue's name, we do not have to have a heart in the logo. We are ok if a heart can be incorporated without feeling forced. We are really looking for a design that appeals to both women and men equally which can be a challenge with the word ‘love’ in the name.
Secondly, we are looking for the typography treatment to be just as strong as the dog. The font type and font treatment should be very legible and clean and prefer a sans-serif or legible script font. Our thought is to have the PittieLove Rescue text to the right of the dog head illustration but are not set on this if the design would be better with the font beneath the dog head. Would prefer not to have text above and below or circling around the head.
At this time we do not have any specific color requests but would suggest modern and neutral colors. We also do not want pink as the primary color.
Logo design will be used on the following: Primary branding of rescue, website, social media, apparel, event banners, mailers, letterhead, and business cards.
