I am a young blacksmith, who needs a logo. It will not only be a company logo, but also on my touchmark - that goes onto everything i make. It needs to be simple, recognizable and classical. I like the idea of it being about my family crest - a dexter hand holding a dagger. It would need to be fairly classical - not too modern, and include my motto - Stricta Parata neci.
Ideally it would be able to still look good on my touchmark (so about max 20mm squared). My nickname is Magnus - Burner of tents. Maybe work that in with blacksmithing?
I should mention, my company is called Magnus Blacksmithing.
