Needs and suggestions
Firm name is Cornerstone Wealth Management, Inc. Very long name for a logo, especially when you add in current "V" image. This current look does not work well for lots of things like Icon, shorts, mugs, etc.
For logo, can focus on "Cornerstone" name only, or "CWM" only, or "CWMI" only. For business cards and other stationary in the future, want to add in the entire firm name.
Colors: The colors we currently use seem agreeable to clients (familiar, earthy, rich), and us. But, very open to alternative colors that are more contemporary. Or adjustments to the current color theme. In my heard, I love the eco-friendly green colors use in many designs today, but the name does not seem to lend Itself to the green. You are welcome to attempt that. I am very open.
Avoid cliché elements (line chart or bar chart showing growth, money, columns, bulls and bears, Wall Street.
I am looking for three variations of application:
Black and White
Reserve Black and White
I have a list of other marketing material/collateral. I hope to find a good designer I can work with to execute on these. I hope this is a good start.
I consider myself to have an eye for creativity, just not a hand for it.
Thank you, and good luck!
