Color Preferences

Keep it to 2-3 colors. Looking for the right gray (cool gray) to mix with the right blue (Ocean, Aqua, Turquoise ). Logo will only be used on a white or a black backdrop. (T-shirts, Hats, Flags, Posters)

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The logo must include WAVES and WNY. Both in ALL CAPS. Preferably also include PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS. This could be in lower case or ALL CAPS.

The following are individual thoughts/lists on the logo but multiple ideas could be combined.
-Prefer for WAVES to be the center point / largest feature of the logo.
-Looking for a unique font for WAVES. Maybe an emphasis on the W as a wave.
-The W and the V could be unique waves in the WAVES name.
-WNY could be added over any portion of WAVES in much smaller font.
-"Est. 2022" could be used in very small font within the logo.
- A "W" alone in an modern font with WAVES, WNY, and PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS additionally elsewhere.

What I liked in my selection of 6 visual inspirations:
Baja Ice House and Grill: WAVES centered as Baja, WNY instead of Icehouse, and PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS instead of & Grill.
Talon Capital: A specific/defined W instead of their T. WAVES instead of Talon PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS underneath.
-The Knothead: Font, Rope use as decor, WNY where (the) is, Water/Waves instead of rope.
-Cody's Gastro Garage: Font and angle of Cody's for WAVES. WNY would be where they have the crossed tools. PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS where they have Gastro Garage. Maybe a boat instead of a car picture.
-Lin-Mark Heating Cooling: Circular Structure, maybe dock lines/ marine rope instead of lines.
-Boardwalk Benefits LLC: Boardwalk font WAVES, A jetboat picture (instead of their pier/sun) above PREMIER BOAT CHARTERS underneath.

The attached 2 files. The digital boat can be used within the logo. The second file is only focusing on the 3 shades of blue I really like for reference, Ignore the design itself.
