How Ewan MacLeod started their logo design journey

Summary

Hi there, I need a logo that will work nicely across our web and TV shows. I need the design to be bold and reasonably simple so that it'll work on multiple media: The web, video, clothing, printed materials. I'm thinking one or two colours featuring a mobile handset and a TV -- and most probably the words 'mobile developer tv', but I defer completely to your expertise and suggestions.

Company name

Mobile Developer TV

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

The logo will form the identity for Mobile Developer TV -- that is, a website (http://www.mobiledeveloper.tv) and at the front of every video we produce. 

We'll be using the logo on all sorts of materials including our clothing -- when we're at conferences or events, our crew will be wearing jackets featuring the logo, so the logo should be instantly recognisable, bold, clearly understood -- and quite simple so it can be eaisly stitched/printed.  Also, in some cases we will need to super-impose a watermark of the logo on some videos -- so it should still work in black/white.

About the site/show:  Our concept is simple: We will interview the best and the brightest of the world's mobile application developers (iPhone, Android, Nokia and so on).  Each interview will be between 5 and 10 minutes long. 

Logo ideas:  I think it would be good to feature some kind of TV element, perhaps fused with a mobile phone handset.  I'd also like to have a logo that can be used separately from it's text.  I'm envisioning a 'mark' (or graphic) of some kind, next to the words 'Mobile Developer TV' or similar.  It'd be good of the mark would standalone so it could be used as a Twitter icon, website icon, and so on. 

If you think 'Mobile Developer TV' is just too much of a mouthful, don't be afraid to try variations on 'MDTV' or similar.

Wants

- Bold design, easily recognisable, simple
- Should work across multiple media (screen, video, clothing)
- I think text should probably be in capitals 
- I'd like to see a typeface choice that is quite thick/bold because it'll need to work nicely on video (Compression from Youtube and mobile video isn't kind to complicated graphics)
- One or two colours -- by all means use multiple colours.
- Bright
- Should work in black and white too
- Consider the logo displayed full screen on the video; and also bottom left of the video -- whether it's scaled huge or small, it should still be identifiable.

Don't want

- If you're looking to include a mobile phone element, try and keep it generic and easily recognisable as a mobile handset (e.g. an aerial, a keypad, screen). 
- A complicated design won't work
