One of my customers needs a new logo for his Yoga centre, the thing is he doesn't want any yoga poses in the Icon. He prefers a simple but strong icon which shows some sort of connection. It's not the spiritual kind of Yoga. Any suggestions?
Brainstorm - things that bend, delicate but strong, organic, etc.
Now translate the found info into symbols and pair with some nice, clean type.
You are getting paid, we are not.
DO YOUR OWN WORK.
You're probably stuck with a lotus then, as you already suggest yourself. Good thing is you can do a lot with it, and it's a very graphic flower in itself.
Only other option I can think of right now would be an Om symbol. Not sure if that's simple enough tough.
The Om symbol has been used a lot as far as I know. I found these recently, strength and triskel might be an option. Personally I think triskel is more simple looking.
Triskel is nice, but is a more universal symbol returning in loads of cultures, so maybe it won't trigger a connection with yoga as quickly. Maybe you could do a third eye kind of thing, it also has a sort of connection with yoga. Not sure if it'll work, but worth a try I'd say
I'll check if it works out, thanks. I was thinking about it some time earlier and came out with something like this. Leaving all the details of the face and only placing the third eye. This is just a very quick sketch what popped into my mind.
Yeah, play around with it a bit. Try adding closed eyes, make the eye slightly more than a dot. Probably starts looking either creepy (like this) or too much Dick Bruna, but yeah.
This might be alright. Maybe turning the eye like this.
maybe some generic lotus flower its pretty easy to do. or you could something like this technique:
