So I'm trying to make a logo that:

  1. Represents two initials: L and R ;
  2. The L is supposed to look somehow like a bird, you will see in the photo;
  3. The letter R is going to be a lowercase "r" that's actually the L letter flipped on the floor, looking like an r but a shadow for the L letter(bird) at the same time.
  4. The idea of the logo is "freedom" , hence the bird.

  5. I'm trying to make it as simple as possible. Don't know if I should make it Black & White or add some color. I'm open to new ideas.

    The problem is, I truly don't know how to make this actually look good because i'm supposed to make the r as if it's a shadow, so I must make it look like a light is behind the L and that creates the shadow, making the photo look kind of 3D. If you could suggest me anything I could do to make it look good I would highly appreciate it! I am working in Photoshop CS6. (The logo is not necessarily supposed to be in a circle) enter image description here

  • I had no idea that was supposed to be a bird until I read that it was supposed to be a bird. I don't mean to imply that's a "bad" thing, but the bird concept is quite obscure. – Scott Feb 15 at 21:01

Instead of shadow you could play with reflection in water like this examples:

  • Thanks! That's a really good suggestion, haven't thought about that :) – ChrispysTrips Feb 15 at 16:12

    This answer is a nice tip, especially the second option, because a gradient or blur is not a good idea to be part of a logo. – Rafael Feb 15 at 17:13
