I'd like a graphical image next to the words Reservoir Research Partners. I would ideally like the logo on the left. Still not sure of the font but want to experiment with all lower case. Font ideas: perhaps a rounded style -- a polished version of Microsoft Word fonts Calibri or Segoe, or see financial website links below.
Very abstractly conveying a well or water or depth of some sort would be great; I am tentatively interested in two color combos: 1) bright sky blue and soft gray or 2) blue and a sunny orange. The business name most likely needs to be dark/black, but I'm open to ideas. The website for Barclays, a large international banking firm, has more or less the shade of blue I'm looking for (bright sky blue) and is an example of a dignified, professional logo to use as a reference:
* Here is a hedge fund logo that is in the right genre:
* Here is a website/logo of a similar business to mine that I like:
I've attached low-res thumbnail files of some photographs I might purchase and post on a web page for a sense of what could be adjacent to my logo.
Format: As you advise, vector format like Adobe Photoshop/Adobe Illustrator. But I don't own that program. So it would be great to also be able to view it on a file readable on most off the shelf Windows-based PCs.
