To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We'll be happy to credit you for your work. Our audience is other Internet service providers. SP owners are typically self-built technology executives, started with a small amount of money and organically grew their business. They may or may not be educated. Some are more conservative than others but as a rule they are generally more "hip". We will be consulting for them and their clients. We like the name "Helmsman" so feel free to use ship metaphors, etc in the design, because we'll certainly be using them in the taglines, e.g. "We won't steer you wrong", things along those lines. We are a little more professional than some companies in our space.
UPDATE 10/05/2011 - Please don't feel like you need to stick to the ship metaphor; while we're okay with that (ship's wheels, etc), there are a lot of directions one might go there, and you can always go for a more "techie" feel. If you do a google image search for 'packet' or 'tcpdump' or 'BGP FSM' you will have some ideas of the things we work with every day. This isn't a signal that you should abandon the ship metaphor, but don't feel limited by it.
Please also feel free to move away from our suggested colors.
