A graphic, and text.
Human, soft, pastel, fun, smile and smart would be core words.
This will be used on a business card. And be a temporary web Logo. web might be more important for now.
Alpha could be a symbol for Alpha, it could be the Alpha dog
( not a goofy cartoon, or aggressive snear) and not a blind guy with a golden lab. 8-).. ya maybe nix the alpha dog.
Alpha, hopefully, it's the first thing that people will think of when social media promotion comes to mind, (alpha lightbulb?)
so maybe just an interesting take on the alpha symbol above/ beside 'Alpha Social Media' text in a unique(ish) web 2.0 font.. possibly a fatter rounded version of Helvetica.
If the font had more of a hand drawn 'feel' to it, would give a sense of personal touch.
tie a graphic with , people, fun, simple gradient colors and shapes that are humanistic, simple, cool, fun combinations.
I'm thinking orange/ red pastels, maybe orange/ blue,
I like/LOVE typography, but that might be too much for my teensy budget. (sorry typography lovers 8-( )
I like bulgy graphics with hard edges, easy to read but not too fat.
