Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Hands / Touch / Healing- perhaps a graceful, stylized hand
#2 - Love - perhaps the palm of the hand can have an elegant "heart" shape
#3 - Astrological symbolism - very subtle.

Our Target Audience:

People who are injured or in chronic pain. Could be any age or gender. Target 35 year old women. NOTE: The industry is actually "Medical" or "Professional Services" but I want the logo to have a beauty salon elegance.

Color Preferences

Green, Blue, Neutral Earthtone shades (brown)

Thank you to everyone for your submissions so far. We are very excited about the contest and look forward to having an amazing design in the end. We will comment as much as possible and continually update the rankings to keep everyone posted as to what we like.

Designers a few key points so far...

1) We are looking for earth tones or muted colors.
2) We are looking for a simple, clean yet very classy logo. Please try to stay away from anything too busy.
3) We want an illustrated, stylized mark, but it needs to be recognized as having: HAND, HEART SHAPE, ZODIAC SYMBOLOGY or CELESTIAL
4) We are looking for dimension in the design. The logo should have depth and not look flat.

Thanks again and please let us know if you have any questions!

Great 2nd round! I'm still not seeing the HEART + HAND + SYMBOLS that I am looking for.

The hands are a little "creepy"... they should be loving and soft, since they'll be advertsing massage.

#31 I really like the font and style, but the handshake is too "business". I realize that it creates a heart shape which is great, but I would prefer if somehow they hands could be open, like giving a massage...

The heart/hand symbols you guys are coming up with is great. I would prefer the heart to NOT be upside-down though.

#75 That heart/hand symbol is very close to what I had in mind! Great use of colors. Although I do think background designs complicate the image, and the sunshine too. I like the shading on #70, but can you do something different with the font?

#55 that symbol is great. Overall the mark could use a bit more color and "boldness".

#31 I love that font! LOVE IT!

#67 that is really cool.

#76 nice. Can you do a hand in the middle instead of an... (alien head?)

#50 The colored arcs that surround the hand seem out of place.

#77 that is very good. I wish the "heart" were more heart shaped.

#92, I like the new font, but we just can't use Papyrus! :) The shadows can be too much without the background!
#84 is really good. I wish there was a way to encapsulate the hands so they don't just end.
