Do you have additional info or links you want to share?

I started to design a logo myself I will include the assets and a couple of the end versions. I would like someone to run with the idea and elaborate with it! I'm open to different interpretations the one thing that I would like to stay with is using a silhouette of a bald person. I don't want the bald person to reflect any specific race or ethnicity. I would like this to appeal to bald headed people in general. I would like a crown in the logo. I don't think that the crown on the top of the head works because I believe that it doesn't show the person being bald. It doesn't show the baldness. I am open to putting the crown in different locations. My focus is that I want to make the baldness and the crown bold! they do not have to be connected per say in the visual but the visual has to demonstrate that the crown and the baldness are connected and BOLD!

Designers are able to use any of the assets that I'm providing but no one is required to use any of them. I am open to all ideas based on your creative aptitude. All ideas are welcome even if they are far beyond the example that I have created.

Here are a few examples of crowns. I do not want it to look evil, I would like it to say I'm badass.

Most of the entries up to this point have been very creative and have opened up a bunch of different possibilities. All of the work that has been put in up to this point has made us rethink what we would like to see as the end result to our logo.

We would like to keep the original colors, black, silver and the blue that has a link in the original post. We have come to the conclusion that simple is better. For instance, like apple logo or the nike logo or the under armor logo. What we have realized is that the logo has to be identifiable at any size. For instance the logo will be used on the labeling of clothes. This means it has to be identifiable at an inch or an inch and a half in diameter.

Most of the logos that have been presented to us are unidentifiable at the smaller size. We do like the side profiles that have been presented to us but we do not like the side profiles of the raw pictures that we sent. Also what we have realized is that we are going to use different parts of the logo for business cards, the web, and advertise in different places. For instance, when we are going to use the logo for the clothing label we just want to use the silhouette and the crown.

Please continue on with your work! We are looking forward to future entries and your creativity.
