So, enough preamble! Your challenge, should choose to accept it ...
We need a visual identity.
We need a logo & theme that reflects our values, our passion for technology, our dedication to our clients and our desire to make this world a better place for everyone.
Our logo should be edgy and yet trustworthy. It should be polished and professional, but not staid or boring. It should reflect energy but exude quality.
We plan on using our logo on our website (we're awaiting your winning design for us to complete and publish our new site!), on business cards and on t-shirts so it should render well at small sizes as well as larger sizes.
Our logo should stand out from the page/card and yet should also be able to be rendered in flat-black on white or flat-white on black/dark backgrounds.
I'm a sucker for orange, yellow, black/slate, grey/silver and green. Don't restrict yourself to these colors, but do consider including them. Feel free to suggest color themes you think would work.
Things to avoid:
Regardless of our statements regarding magic above, we don't want overt cartoonish wands, wizards, witches, cats, etc. We don't want to look like a kids' entertainment company!
Other than that, be creative. be organic, be energetic, be suave, be aggressive, but always, ALWAYS ... BE GOOD!
