Thank you sharing your talent with this blind design contest!
Layout: We are low-budget (we help people on donation) and name recognition will be important in order for people to find us. We want to accent the Bliss. We like logos on the left with the name on the right.
Negative Space: We love clever and subtle use of negative space! We think it's fabulous when our eye has to study just a bit to uncover a delicious hidden secret. :-)
Symbols: A seed stratifying/becoming an abundant or unexpected tree; light; a spark of light; fire/flame; ray(s) of warm or bright light, hints at a heart - but not too similar to the one at http://www.thework.com, open hands, and/or a photon. The following shapes (or hints at them): circle, heart, squircle, ellipse.
Fonts: Sans serif or a light serif. Limit script fonts.
Neutral: A friendly reminder, we want it to have mass appeal - not exclusively for females or males.
Colors: We like green, orange, yellow/golden and browns. We are open to a tiny bit of gradient but please refrain from putting it throughout the company name.
Universality: This belong to all - please ensure design does not exclusively align with on particular religion or faith-based group.
Intention: Our comments are meant to be encouraging and helpful. If they come across otherwise then please let us know!
We are committed to updating this design brief as the contest rolls along.
Thank you! We really love and appreciate your support.
