I'd like for the logo to be character based. I'd like a scene with a fabulous woman in a cosmopolitan, shiny, modern cartoon style who's happy and loving her life. I want the text of the logo to be boldly incorporated into the scene with "Anyce Grayly's" to be above and much smaller than "Diamond Divas" preferably in a cursive script. Diamond Divas should be most prominent and bold in sans serif font, except maybe the Ds could be more cursive if that works? If the text can reference diamonds, that'd be great.
EDIT: I'd prefer if the scene can be encapsulated somehow. I don't want a bit border or anything like that, not in a circle or emblem that kind of thing, just a simple background so you know where the logo begins and ends. The girl should be sassy and chic, fun-loving and classy. She should have a premium, luxury feel.
IMPORTANT: You MUST be available for ongoing work. This will be the logo but I will need you to develop other situations with this character and other logos that match this one but for different groups. I'm keen to build a relationship with you and look forward to working together for a long time.
Styles I like:

I'd like to see something like this for diamond divas.
WHAT I WANT FROM THE COMPETITION:
1. Please use the competition round 1 to design a logo for "Diamond Divas" as described above.
After the finalists have been selected, I'll ask for another logo, in the same style of the "Diamond Divas" but this will be for "Crystal Chicks".
2. "Crystal Chicks" logo. "Anyce Grayly's" will be the same as diamond divas. The 'Crystal Chicks" will be in the same/similar style as "Diamond Divas" but will be differentiated to be more crystal than diamond. I see diamonds as being more black/white and crystal being more bright rainbow/white. The colour scheme should lighten up and be a bit brighter with colour. The girl should be in a different pose, more everyday, fun and casual than Diamond Divas.
I'm asking for this now, because I need to see your ability to adapt the brand to new products for working with you ongoing.
After choosing the finalist I will need:
3. Files in all formats with transparent backgrounds, including editable
4. Colour logos
5. Monotone version of logos
6. Facebook Cover - Diamond Divas text logo with extended scene of character
7. Twitter Cover - Diamond Divas with extended scene of character
8. Youtube Cover - Diamond Divas with extended scene of character
9. Social Media Profile Pic - Diamond Divas character face only, no logo, or with a small DD in one corner
AFTER THE CONTEST:
I will need illustrations for blog posts of the character a couple of times per month
Illustrations with the Crystal Chicks character in various scenes for a book/online program (progressively within the next 2-12 weeks)
Illustrations with the Diamond Divas character in various scenes for a book/online program (progressively within the next 4-16 weeks)
More logos to come in the same theme
Ad-hoc designs to go on print, merchandise, and I don't know what yet!
I REALLY want you to be a part of the team and we'll be working with you closely moving forward. I appreciate what you do, and you'll be fairly compensated for what you produce for us, having said that, keeping the budget under control is also an important consideration. :) Looking forward to working with you!
