How Strangeloop started their button or icon journey
We are a dynamic tech company that, while small, is emerging as a thought leader in the web acceleration industry. We develop and sell solutions that are designed to make websites faster.
We recently launched Site Optimizer, a family of solutions that are designed to make websites dramatically faster. Site Optimizer has already been implemented by some high-profile companies, and we’re getting a lot of attention in the mainstream tech media. This is the time for us to brand our solutions and hit the ground running.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The audience will be technical for the most part, but executives and marketing people will also see our materials.
While our business is high tech, we do not want something that looks overly high tech. We want something fairly simple with a modern look that is not over-the-top web 2.0.
We need three icons for our Site Optimizer products and service:
1. Site Optimizer appliance – A hardware device that physically sits in our customer's network.
2. Virtual Site Optimizer – Software that is installed on a virtual machine.
3. Site Optimizer service – A website acceleration service we provide through the "cloud" (over the internet).
We would like the icons to coordinate with the look of our site (http://www.strangeloopnetworks.com). The icons do not have to be in our colours, but they must coordinate with our colours:
Super Dark Grey: C=68 M=49 Y=62 K=55
Dark Grey: C=68 M=49 Y=61 K=31
Light Grey: C=52 M=35 Y=45 K=4
Blue: C=76 M=49 Y=0 K=62
Light Blue: C=52 M=33 Y=0 K=0
Orange: C=0 M=66 Y=87 K=0
** Please note that the images that we are looking for are icons and NOT buttons. We'd like to use these icons in both print and web. Take a look at our website and what we currently have in our product heading for more info. http://strangeloopnetworks.com/products/
