It is about a company building websites, and rich internet applications, also cross media products. Good looking, good working projects are pretty important, but it is not a design company, but work is done with other design companies to reach a high level of quality. The focus lies on websites or applications, which are fun to use, enjoyable, easy, simple to use. The keywords are: intelligent, intuitive, innovative, interactive. And that is also where the logo is coming from, 4i = IV I = IVI.
The claim is not clear, but for now we can work with the 4 parameters / words:
intelligent, intuitive, innocative and interactive
If that changes, we do it ourself, or get back to the designer.
The target audience are agencies with a high level of design expectaitions for their own projects, as well as clients with a high interest of getting a complete working (in terms of effective, enjoyable,...) product (website, application,...). Potential clients are looking for software development, but also for complete projects, where we will handle the design process with our external partners.
The logo is mainly for digital media. The logo will also be used on cards, invoices or such, but fax etc. is not important, so it can be colorful, 3d or whatever. (Monochrom is an option too ;))
I attached screenshots of the old logo which was developed with the idea to have modules. Another idea one could use for a logo is to have something plugable, the clients get's something which works out of the bugs / he plugs in and he can use it right away.
The logo should also work inside of applications as a branding item.
For the design, what you see in the screenshots is too classic, I imagine something more crazy, interesting. As the whole thing will be developed further for website design as well as for application layout, having it on a clean background is probably important, white background. The logo should be outstanding, recognizable. It can be also done with more colors, if it's nice, suprise us with something crazy, funny, outstanding. Maybe also upload rough sketches for quicker feedback before working on details.
The typeface should be clear and simple, nothing romantic.
