It was great working with the designer, Embunpagi. Response was rapid and on-point. All my suggestions were taken into account and his ability to translate my ideas into reality were greatly appreciated. My company did not have many preconceived notions about our logo design, but are very happy with the results. Thank you.

INFORMATION to consider as you design:
I have uploaded some images that may spark the design. As I said the Camino is a 500 mile trail across northern Spain. The trail is marked with two distinctive marks to follow: a yellow arrow and/or a yellow scallop shell on a background of blue. BUT , DO NOT USE BLUE AS A BACKGROUND COLOR for the overall design. I want clean, simple lines, so incorporate what you will of these colors into the font and icon colors. I do not want a logo with a blue background like the way marks below. DO NOT USE A BLUE BACKGROUND as part of the logo. Use blue in the design, but NOT as a background color.The logo needs to look great layered on a white background on our new website. So do NOT mimic the way marks below that show yellow text on a field of blue , but incorporate the two colors somehow in the font color and icon on a field of white.Note my selection of a sample logo above. If you use the scallop shell in the design, please make it less stylized than the ones in the images I uploaded. Something between the stylized graphic ones here, and an actual representative shell. The two little projections at the back of the shell should be much less noticeable than the ones pictured here, too. FOR THE FONT: I like the idea of using a serif font, like Times New Roman, in all upper case letters with the beginning letters in a larger size. (See new uploaded image #6 below in "Attachments".) Another font I like is the one in the #3 image below. I am recommending the font style not the yellow color, not the overall design of #3 because it does not follow the other guidelines I have given you about using the blue and yellow.
