    Hi everyone,

    This post isn't asking any of you to design me a logo, more some advice and creative input I require. I have just purchased an old police house which I'm converting into a B&B. I want to stick with the theme of vintage police, so things like a truncheon and police hat. The issue I'm having is thinking of how I could possibly assemble this to pop and stand out. I understand it's a fairly unique asking, but if anyone should have any creative and good advice it's all of you on this forum.

    The obvious one that springs to my mind is the old blue lamp you used to see on the side of the police station. Just a simple
    illustration next to the name.

    Alternatively, the name could be on a police badge, but the lettering might be a bit small.

    Ok - this is interesting and you can some fun.

    First step into logo design is research - here's a link to a google image search, not joking - it's something to consider and pick a shape and style that you like.

    Next step would be to research B&B Logos -

    Your next step is to pick a couple of styles you like.

    Then sketch your logo ideas on paper.

    Post your sketches here - and if you feel like you really like 3 or 4 of them, then have a go at turning them into vectors.

    Remember the rule "KISS" - "keep it simple stupid"

    If you're a Doctor Who fan, how about designing a front entrance porch in the style of an old police telephone box?

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you to each and every one of you for getting back to me so swiftly. I apologise about taking so long to respond, I've been in the process of renovating this property which has been taking all of my time. I've been thinking about what I want, and in all honesty I want simplicity. This vector is what I want, but obviously with more text for the name of the business. As my profession isn't in graphic design, I'm trying to recreate this victor but not with much success. I would have gone for things such as police badges, although this is a very old British property and I have asked many of the older generation what they associate with an old police house, and they all come back with the blue light. If any of you have any creative suggestions on the best way I could possibly recreate this, I am open to each and every one of your suggestions. Once again, apologies about taking so long to respond. If this is too much hassle, I will just pay a company to do this for me, it's just I have Photoshop and am trying to save some money by doing it myself.

    Personally, I think something a bit more stylised would look better, quite small, sat next to the name.
