Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am developing a startup, which I hope will qualify for non-profit status after I incorporate. It will be an online searchable/filterable directory of mental health and social services. So, the interface will be that a person can select that they want to find services for depression and substance abuse, for adolescents, that have weekend appointments, within 10 miles (for example)...and see counselors, psychologists, support groups, etc, and drill down to a manageable list of contacts. Currently, data is scattered between government sites (that are disorganized, slow, and cumbersome), for-profit listings that preferentially list the most expensive providers, and require a top-down and disorganized decision making process by wading through vague and lingo-heavy descriptions within a certain provider type (like professional counselors only, then psychiatrists only, etc). Basically, I think you should be able to shop for therapy the same way you shop for other goods and services online.

The primary uses of this logo will be for my website, social media accounts, and business cards. I find that a logo that fits into a square, with a picture above words (or integrated into type) is more versatile than something stretched out/elongated. I am looking for a clean, bold, graphic design (not hand-drawn, vintage, cartoonish, or overly detailed), sans-serif type. I like the creative use of negative space and basic black thick lines and sillouettes. Where there is color, I lean toward blue, as I think it is familiar, serious, and professional. I am aware that "see someone" can come across as a dating site, so although I am trying to represent that basically I want people to find someone to have a therapeutic relationship with, I DO NOT WANT anything that is two people too closely arranged/intimate, or has heart-shaped design elements in any way as to be misleading.
