I am in the early days of a new self-employed business doing rope access and rigging (predominantly for aerial circus, theatre and dance), and I need a logo!

I have a blog for what I've been doing so far (which I haven't updated much as I keep forgetting to take any photos): http://greysquirrelevents.blogspot.co.uk/

I know there are some great artistic types on here, and I'd love to get one of you to design me a logo please :) I'm happy to pay a small fee (or send some UK vegan treats to you if you prefer!) I'm basically looking for something which emphasises the agility/climbing skills of grey squirrels along with the name of the company. Let me know if you have any questions!

What sort of things are you needing it for? Blog and business cards? Posters? What kind of style do you like? Simple, a few muted colours of something more elaborate or flamboyant?

At the moment, I'd be using it for my blog, invoices and business cards. I'd be looking for something in a few muted colours or monochrome rather than anything too technicolour :) For style, this is a drawing I like, but I'd be looking for something more of a squirrel in action (and would be happy to consider other styles depending on the artist) and with the words 'Grey Squirrel Events' incorporated somewhere:

That is a cool looking drawing, but I suspect that the detail would not reproduce well when shrunk down for small items like business cards. And it could be difficult to adapt to black and white applications like invoices (consider that even if you print your invoices in colour that they would often be photocopied). That is not to say that you can't make a logo in the style you showed, but I'd take a look at some more logos for inspiration to see if there are any alternatives styles that appeal to you. Here are a couple places you could start with: http://www.pinterest.com/nachhalltiges/logo-with-animal/ and http://www.pinterest.com/squish_creative/animal-logos/.

Thanks :) I'm actually just considering having a go myself, even though I haven't done anything remotely arty since I dropped fine art at college nearly 10 years ago! I'm thinking of including some kind of item of PPE as well as the squirrel to make it more relevant to the business. The problem right now is finding the time.

That is truly amazing. I'm not sure what people would say if started to put that on my invoices though. Only one way to find out!
