We sell to a wide variety of customers since we sell items such as comics (to a fairly young audience) and very detailed collectable toy soldiers (to a more mature audience). Therefore, we need something that will have a pleasing look to both sets of ages.
Our target audience is mostly male but there are some female fans of the comic area of the business.
My current thoughts are possibly something along the lines of a shield or an emblem although I am open to any ideas. - Since the competition started the shield/emblem ideas have been too simple so I would like to move away from this unless the designs could be of a more complex level. Please see above example logos.
It would be good to see some detail around the soldiers that we sell in the logo somewhere if possible. Ideas for the type of soldiers we sell can be seen by doing a google images search for "del prado cavalry of the napoleonic wars" or "del prado men at war". Alternativeley you can find images on our website (Newtoncollectables.co.uk in the "Toy Soldier" area)
I would like the name of the company (Newton Collectables) incorporated somewhere in the logo.
Our website NewtonCollectables.co.uk is available for you to look at. Please do not try too hard to fit in around the current background of the website, I recognise that this is very colourful and it is possible that we could change the header background to compliment the new logo.
