I'm looking for someone to create a logo for a start up travel company, Amikoo Travel. Amikoo (Ah-me-koh) is used by Mayans to refer to their friend or important friend.
We provide trips to young travelers aged 18-30 something. We focus more on the experience, than just arriving to a hotel and having 100% of the day booked with tourist activities. We offer more of a cultural and local experience (visiting archaeological sites, staying at boutique hotels, eating at smaller local restaurants, etc).
Our first trip is in the Riviera Maya, and we are working on trips in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, and other surrounding areas. We hope to expand to more cities and countries in the near future.
Apart from trips, we also want to put our logo/icon on merchandise (backpacks, hats, shirts, etc).
We'd like a logo with an icon, which ties into our company and/or name, and is easily associated with travel, without being super cliche. Some ideas: suitcases, globes, maps, BUT we'd much rather have a unique touch to it. Another idea is having the logo as a patch.
We are looking for someone to help us with all our future designer needs as well.
