About Your Company
O.A.M. stands for "Over-Active Mind". The purpose of OAM Meditation is to provide a genuine, authentic, NO BULLSHIT introduction into spirituality. No "third eye" or new-age "vibration" verbage, no religious affiliations, and no "cult-leader" personalities!!! OAM is CENTERED AROUND PRACTICES. It is a carefully crafted modern take on spirituality.
In one sentence:
OAM is an entrepreneurial endeavor steadfast on delivering tools (in the form of non-traditional, classical yoga) that turn your "over-active mind" working for you rather than against you.
(OAM seeks to deliver these tools both online and in-person)
To summarize OAM's PRACTICES into one sentence: "everything is determined by your breath". Kriya Yoga is the crown jewel, weapon of choice, to accomplish OAM's mission of life and breath control. Kriya Yoga is sitting posture meditation: "classical yoga".

Top 3 Things
Striking. Humble. Simple. Perfect example is Yin-Yang, (or other religious symbols like Jainism symbol), or the robust ASU Sundevil pitchfork or humble Impact Theory logo.
To give you some context, this is what you need to know:
- I fucking care
- before this application, I spent a lot of time doing this only this only to realise I suck and can't do this on my own. But I care enough to keep trying anyway.
- This project, my comapny and my business, WILL change peoples lives. The design that you submit could be a symbol people that people look to with warmth in their heart and tears in their eyes. This opportunity means a lot to me.
... word to the wise, (after dozens of failures I have learned a few things):
1. Geometry is important
2. There is a constant war between familiarity and novelty. To win this war is to create a genius logo.
3. logo design is hard
Now, before we get too carried away, here is generally what I am looking for -->
I changed to a design focused on SYMMETRY after watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQjcqEE37jA&t=350s
and this article convinced me I needed something simple and striking: https://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2013/03/4-essential-rules-of-effective-logo-design/
In case I didn't make myself clear yet: I AM OPEN TO ANY AND ALL DESIGN CONCEPTS. (because I really don't know exactly what OAM will look like in a single geometry).
With that said, out of everything I have , the design concept I love the most is: a cirlce... with something inside.
As you can see with some of the designs that I have attached, I like the idea of using the three letters of my company name, "OAM" in my logo. Unfortunatly all of my designs that I have attached have FAILED. The closest one that had the most potential is the "baby changing station logo".
***I like the idea of my logo looking subconsciously familiar, even if the familiarity has nothing to do with yoga!***
If you get stuck, try google image searching "kriya yoga symbol" to get a feel for the traditional "kriya yoga" geometry (teardrop geometry).
Look through some of my inspirations and design concepts that I have attached.
some final notes...
- I love the whole enigma of a black hole and an "event horizon". I feel to incorporate that would be magic. (I believe it captures a lot of what my company is about)
So that's it! Stomp around, play, create and above all, build something magical...
Blessings to you, and thanks for some of your time!!!
