Purple Rhino Promotions
I've owned PRP for 13 years, and I'm still quite young ! Ive had the same old Purple Rhino but now feel he needs a complete image change, a change of appearance a more funkier look but we don't want to look like a one man band, we want to look BIG and professional but just with a funky logo ! We are a Promotional Branded Merchandise Company, our clients range from very large blue chip companies to the small one man band customers who want us to brand and print their company details/logos onto Mugs, Pens, Mousemats, Coasters, Umbrellas, Post it notes, calendars etc... we also print and embroider onto promotional clothing, T.shirts, Sweatshirts, Caps, Polo's, uniforms etc....
Our market is very, very competitive so although our price has to be good, we have to have a logo that stands out from the crowd and people remember us, our Rhino has to stick in peoples heads ! We want to target Advertising, Recruitment companies, people that want their branded name to be advertised onto Umbrellas, Mugs etc... , companies that spend alot on advertising on promo stuff.
Attached is the Rhino we currently have, I feel he looks childish now. My thoughts were perhaps a design of the Rhino charging with four legs but one front leg bent with his hoof looking like its charging with a puff of dust coming back up behind his hoof, head down with maybe puff of steam from his nostrils but not too scary looking ! He can be sat up, stood up, balancing, leaning against something, maybe wearing a t.shirt, I'm not fussed, you can put a waistcoat on him, sunglasses whatever but I just want people to remember THE Purple Rhino - maybe make his belly look big ?! He has to be Purple (mid purples, not mauve), and I love Magenta and Lime Green maybe for the writing - we are known as Purple Rhino Promotions. Our website is currently being done http://www.purplerhino.co.uk We are re-branding our business cards and headed paper so any ideas would be fab ! No more than a 3 colour print. I want to own the copyright of the logo - try not to use stock photos as I won't legally own the design. Can I have him in a pdf/ai/jpeg and any other formats I might need to make him larger or smaller ? I WILL LEAVE THIS ONE UPTO THE EXPERTS OUT THERE ! HAVE FUN !!
