As noted above my company is a consulting engineering business which provides services to local people and others, split approximately 50/50. I am looking for a clean modern design for my logo, a logo which says creative and professional. I do not want any of the stereotypical thing you would find in a engineering logo such as the outline of a building, a crane, a ruler, a compass, gears, big block lettering, angular shapes or big colourful shapes. The logo should sit well against a light or dark background. The use of colour is welcome, the wording element of logo should be a different colour from the design element and the MOL portion of the name should be slightly different colour or type to the Engineers portion, for example MOL in black, Engineers in gray.
My company is based in Kenmare in the South West of Ireland, there is a arch suspension bridge in the town which is recognisable to both local and tourists alike which I would like to have incorporated into my logo. I have attached three photos of the bridge. The link to Google street view is as follows if you want to have a look at the surrounding area
However I do not want a replica of the bridge in the logo (I have attached two example logos of what I do not want Kenmare Heritage Town and Kenmare Golf Club), I just want enough of the shape incorporated into the logo design to suggest the bridge so that a person can pick up on it. By incorporating the bridge into the logo it links my company to the area and it is also a link to engineering. The link below shown a previous logo design done for another company, if you look at the design brief you will see that they also wanted a local bridge incorporated into their logo, but the bridge is only hinted at in the design.
I have attached some examples of logos which I quite like.
I have attached a sketch of the bridge which may be of some use.
All that being said I am open to your creative ideas even if they go against some of the brief above.
Also I do not need the envelope design from the brand identity pack, instead I would like you to create an advertising sign. Basically this will include the logo and contact information. This sign would be put up on projects we are working on to advertise this fact to passing members of the public.
