Titan Consulting Group, Inc. is an IT consulting company founded in 2001 in southeastern Michigan. We are changing our company name to a dba of Titan Solutions in order to update our company image and reflect growing commercial software product offerings. We provide IT services such as system management, software development, web application development, e-commerce, and business process design and automation. We also offer three commercial software products: Metridoc(r) a document management solution, Folder Watcher a utility that launches processes based on file system activity (e.g. file created in a folder), and Smplify a CSLA code generation solution. We are a Microsoft Partner and belong to the Apple iPhone/iPad software developer program. We felt that "Titan Consulting Group" was a bit of an old naming convention and our current logo was dated as well. So we need a great new logo to go along with our new company business name. Our web site is in a state of suspension but you can view our existing logo(s) at http://www.titanconsultinggroup.com. This logo project will be followed up with a web site design project.
Small to medium sized businesses and independent or small group software development companies. We want our target audience to see the logo and think that our company is experienced, capable, solid, reliable, trustworthy, knows technology, and is current.
(I'm running out of room so I'll start the Requirements section here.)
===== Requirements ======
We would like a vector logo (ai) that can be used on a web site, software About dialogs, possibly an icon, on our letterhead, business cards, and on our company apparel (shirts and jackets). We want color and black/white versions.
The company name actually came from the movie, "Remember the Titans", because of the feeling we had watching the movie, the teamwork, and success. It also occurred to me after that a "Titan" was my high school mascot. That being said we have always shied away from titan, spartans, and other gladiator type symbols. We also know that Titan is the name of one of Saturn's moons and we have shied away from that symbolism as well. I'm not saying you can't submit it, but you would have to overcome that obstacle in order to win.
We would prefer a meaningful abstract vector logo (ai). What do I mean by "meaningful abstract" (sort of an oximoron)? Well if you take a box and make a great logo then I would consider that abstract. However if a box making company uses that logo -- it just became meaningful. So although it is not necessary it would be great if the logo had some meaning -- almost like a twist. Similiar to the movie "The Sixth Sense" where you might not see it the first time you look at it, but its all there. Well it doesn't have to be as deep as "The Sixth Sense" and although some meaning would be preferred what we are after is a great looking logo (and we will know that when we see it :) ).
Also, don't get too hung up on the block thing going on in our existing logo -- it is a bit of an overused symbolism in technology companies.
In the past we have used the colors blue and gray (Detroit Lions? I'm not sure where our current colors came from.) but we are not married to any color scheme. We will consider any color scheme, but remember that it will be used on company apparel.
We are looking for something clean, simple, and modern. We like lighting (but it is not necessary). Shadows may look good on a web site, but they will also have to look good on company apparel.
See what you can do. We are open to something creative. Thanks for helping us out and good luck!
