Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

I am a professional video director and social media strategist. I want to communicate my approach to digital media production and marketing through this logo, which is very aggressive, clean, modern, and dominant. I like a minimalistic approach. I do not like too many lines extremely small details, I want it to be recognizable and modern.

Also, I would not mind someone trying to incorporate an abstract image or icon to further communicate what I look to communicate. While I want the logo to include "Mike Clum" which is my name, I might also consider seeing an animal or abstract icon image to be my icon. An example of this is releasesunglasses.com, which will be listed below with a variety of websites that I like the branding and logo of.

Here are a list of websites that I like the branding and logo of:

This logo must be very clean and simple.

I do not want anything which shows the type of business I do, this simple is for me as a business individual to suit my personality and evolve with me overtime as my services change.

I do not want color, just black and white, and maybe a small accent color of yellow or red, but used very sparingly.

I might animate the logo in my video reel or intro..

See this video for an example of the look and feel of video I try to make: https://vimeo.com/50953715

Use this as inspiration to create the clean and modern logo "Mike Clum"

Please stay away from typical "MC" concepts. While if you can pull something creative, original, and iconic off using the letters MC and then "Mike Clum" feel free to try, but I really really do not want a normal logo.

This is something I would like to use the rest of my life that is ICONIC. I'd rather see you guys go for something off the wall and different and completely fail than to make something typical that I could get any random designer to draw up for me.

Most of the entires so far look very similar. Keep trying creative things.

The links and logos I included are to inspire you on the feel I want, not necessarily the exact look.

Try something CRAZY!

Try something new.

So far I have one logo that is "OK" to me. The majority of these do not fit the brand I am looking to create.

I want something truly original, something that I couldn't make myself. Remember, I am a video director, a creative type, I could probably go in photoshop or whatever and make the majority of these logos. I wouldn't hire a professional to do amatuer work and I need the creativity and artisty to come to life for this project. I am more focused on the ART of this than the font or my name, whatever, I want something that I am proud of not just a logo that I can use on a business card.

I am a 20 year old entreprenuer who has incredible things in my future if I continue the work I have in the past 2 years and I want something that I could have stick with me for years to come, and so far none of the logos I would be proud to put by my name. Yes, I could use them, but it would be merely just to get by in business and that is not my approach. I need something iconic, innovative, something that I've never ever seen before that is artistic, simple, and truly one of a kind.

The creative who can come up with this will win this bid.
