You can view my current site @ http://www.daycationdecks.ca/ as well as the newer site (which is currently under development) @ http://www.daycationdecks.com/. The logo should work well with the design and layout of the new site. A linear design may fit better into the header area as well as be easier to incorporate into future brand identity products such as letterhead, business cards, etc. Also, please see the above examples of logos that I liked. Simplicity while maximizing impact and clarity to my customers is ideal.
The logo image attached is the current logo that I have been using. While I like certain elements it does not work well with the overall design of my site nor the colours of my brand. I like bold powerful text styles such as the one used in this logo. I also like the symbol as I feel it represents my services well, although i feel that it is very generic and the colours do not work well with my brand. I feel that the symbol should showcase my services to a degree. The existing symbol does a fantastic job of this as it has four sections, each of which showcases a product that I install (i.e. stone, brick, wood, landscaping). Any new symbol that is incorporated into the logo ideally should showcase this same type of literal message so that it clearly dictates to my customers and target audience what exactly my specialties and services are.
The image attached is the main image that I use to represent my brand both on my website as well as on social media. I really like the colours in this photo and it is my inspiration for the new website design as well as for the colours I would like to associate with the new logo design.
To be clear; I DO NOT WANT THE SYMBOL TO SIMPLY BE A FANCY LETTER D OR DD's.
Also; Lets experiment a little bit with the font and creating more of a wordmark style logo as opposed to everyone just using the exact same font style. Something a little more unique yet simple, such as the TURRANO logo above uses a different font to add depth to the logo.
If adding a new entry, please be creative and add something that is not nearly identical to all of the other submissions.
