We are looking for a professional logo that's a bit of fun but also serious. We are starting a high-end professional development studio that specialises in developing apps. We don't make anything else, just apps. From mobile and using the hand as a input device hence the name handstand studios.
We have started with the idea of a hand doing some kind of handstand (or thumb stand and 2 fingers or more sticking out) possibly in some kind of graphic way. Think breakdancing / parkour as a possibility.
At the moment we are undecided whether to use handstand studio or handstand studios. Options on either of these will be considered.
I think of it as a witty approach that's a bit tongue in cheek with understated humour that's clever, but not so obvious that its childish. E.g. If you look carefully at the fedex logo there is a hidden arrow in the EX letters negative space. This is a bit unexpected and witty, its more about the approach than hiding stuff in letters for clarity sake.
Look at this:
The logo will be used across all normal elements, mostly on screen and at the beginning of each App we build. So this is a key consideration will it look good on a screen. We like simple bold designs.
While we have chosen this name any other ideas might be considered.
Good luck. Happy designing.
