I am mainly looking for an image that can communicate the business we're in without the name of the business. We're going to keep our logo very simple but we would like an image, maybe a line drawing indicating what we do or communicating our name without the actual words.
You can play with shears, scotch bottles, glasses, ice, or anything else you can think of that would communicate the concept. No razors because this is not an old school barbershop.
The objective is not to create a logo with the name but to create a graphic only that can be used along with the name to brand the company. When you think of a high end men's grooming salon named guybar, what do you see? That's what I want to see.
