Did not previously notice (nor properly utilize) this notes section.
Several submissions came in that focused on the traditional Spartan (Corinthian) helmet to convey the Spartan association. Too commonly used in many industries.
I am hoping for a clean, simple design that focuses more on the Lambda Symbol and ROUND Shield (as pictured in the uploads). The uploaded Images and information is largely for contextual meaning.
Use of a line to indicate the circle of a shield is not mandatory. Traditional greek design, like the shield held by the pictured statue and gold shield (uploaded), or Laurel Wreaths to IMPLY a circle (SHIELD) is welcome.
Also, serif Lambda is also preferred, but as with all design elements I am flexible and willing to defer to plausible judgment of the designer.
A conveyance of simplicity and elegance combined with strength and efficiency is what I desire in this design.
Thank you!, in advance.
