Ideas & concepts

Something clean that signals responsive design and yet incorporates a retro feel of authenticity, perhaps with a font such as American Typewriter. Looking more for something signifying strength, integrity. The paper equivalent would be a heavy, grainy stock with more of a natural hue. There is room here to play with using "5" "5th" or Fifth. The logo does not have to be literal - it does not absolutely have to actual read "Fifth Estate Media" as long as it's provocative and conveys something interesting that might make authors want that logo on their nonfiction books. It's really a symbol of quality nonfiction content. I like the idea of a circle.

Additional Design Inspirations

User upload:

Using a symbol that conveys the name is preferable to actually using the full name. Example: The White Squirrel magazine logo doesn't show a squirrel (that would be too obvious); the word "White" is in white letters over a black acorn - very clever and thoughtful.
