Like I mentioned above: eye-catching and hip for the programmer types but don't scare away the business people.
Looking for text plus a unique icon. If the icon and text are merged into one symbol that's acceptable (like Starbucks and Harley-Davidson) but NOT necessary. The icon will be used in key branding situations: twitter icon, favicon, etc.
The logo will be used on the site, in business cards, stickers, shirts, maybe even expo banners. A vector format that I can scale for these varied media would be excellent, or a number of layered PSDs at different sizes / DPI.
Looking for a fresh, interesting design. Not cute or cartoony. Needs to have a professional feel but also appeal to software nerds like me. That's a challenge!
Matte design please. Little or no shiny reflections, but gradients are fine.
No dollar signs and other "get-rich-quick" style items
No clip-art (especially cheesy clip-art looking stuff. You know what I mean)
No overly complex designs.
All icons must be your own creation/design - they can not be from a third party source or stock icons.
Please include in deliverable:
- fonts that are part of the design
- vector file or PSDs at different sizes and a large high DPI (300) version for large print projects.
Thanks for considering this project!
