My only target demographic requirement is that it must appeal to women because they seek acupuncture treatment far more often than men. However, I don't want it to turn off men!
The concept of Rhythm Acupuncture is to bring the body back to its natural rhythm of health. There are several rhythms in nature - the inhalation and exhalation of the breath, the changing of the seasons, the cycle of day and night. Similarly, our bodies have natural rhythms. When we become aligned with them, we feel good - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I would like some color in my logo but it must also look good if printed in black and white for use on forms and paperwork. Since my concept is not musical, I do not want any symbols of music such as staff and notes. I also DO NOT want any images of needles because I think it scares people, and I spend a lot of time talking people down from their fear of needles. I am looking for beauty, polished aesthetic, andI want it to evoke the feeling of my concept.
I want to avoid the following colors as main colors - red, orange, yellow.
For the symbol/design, I have a few ideas, but don't limit yourselves to these. I like sacred geometry designs, waves, circles, flowers, and birds.
