We'd love to do a riff on the old game genie design that I've attached. While creating our own unique brand identity as a grip strength equipment and chalk company.
I played around with it in the "grip genie" version with yellow, orange and blue. We'd love the character in the game genie logo, just our own version (maybe geometric). The trademark and patents have been abandoned for the Game Genie long ago.
Genie character should be masculine, geometric if possible and in a grip strength post that fluidly integrates with the logo. We don't want common fitness and bodybuilding poses for the genie. Grip is focused on hands. If he could be more of a "figure" rather than based on huge, defined muscles and physique, similar to the shadow of a genie on the game genie logo.
The grip genie logo should be retro/classic styling and Integrate with the genie in an organic matter.
We'd love easily readable and compact design that could translate onto products, social media or be adapted into a smaller "genie" that represents the company as a whole without text needed.
