Special requests:

Logo/wordmark: Not too boxy/corporate...but clean nonetheless.

I'd like to see word mark all lower case...unless you wow me with something creative. as I state below...possibly uppercase first letter.


Another important thing to consider for the logo itself (standing alone from the word mark)...how does it look inside a profile picture circle on social media sites like Facebook/IG/Twitter? The logo needs to be able to stand alone there as well.


As you read below...think of the pipe as a character...


Some background to help you:


I am a video storyteller. I shoot/edit/write...and help small non-profits as well as larger hospitals and companies tell their story. To be clear going in...I'd like to have fun with this logo...but still with an understanding that we are a video production company in the end. (A logo that can come to life?)



The name of my LLC is Lyrical Pipe Creative. It's based off my Grandfather. The two best words to describe him: wit and wisdom. As a kid I would hang out with him in his basement den, he'd have a pipe in one hand, classical music on the radio and a typewriter nearby to type up a rhyme that would come into his head. So...after a lot of brainstorming, Lyrical Pipe was landed on. When you think of a pipe smoker, you think of a storyteller...and a character. Mark Twain. General MacArthur. But I'm also a musician. My music background helps me be a better storyteller and video editor. My wife is a music teacher. SO...think of the "pipe" in this as almost being its own character. It doesn't necessarily have to be smoke coming from it...but ideas. Music. Stories.


Looking for something both simple and creative here. A static logo that can live as a watermark on a youtube video or a logo that can come alive with a little bit of motion editing. I've included a couple of photos of my Grandpa Bixby and his pipe as a reference for you. That's me as a younger guy with him and my grandmother. That's his actual corncob pipe from the picture, too. The other photos is with the old tape recorder (not necessary for logo) he used to record poems and thoughts. Hope this all helps.

Other fonts: I'm open to font options...but I do like clean. I also like how lyricalpipe.com looks lowercase with the possibility of an Uppercase L that flows in the beginning...I think you could have fun with the word mark.
