Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - High Quality
#2 - Customer Focused
#3 - Passionate about helping your business succeed

Our Target Audience:

Primary audience is small business that need custom programming. Typically this is going to be web programming in Ruby on Rails; jobs tend to be around 4-6 weeks and cost $20,000.

Age is all over the map, most common is probably 30s-40s business owners. My location is near Raleigh, NC, but I telecommute all over the US and Canada. My customers tend to value quality results over cheap solutions. Tend to be technically-minded people.

Color Preferences

I am open to color suggestions.

I've added a comment to the contest, indicating that I am partial to blues and shades of coral and aquaramine.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Another concept that could be included is the idea of craftmanship. I consider myself a Software Craftman. Or possibly an artist, rather than trying to focus on a "technology" type of image.

Thanks Sudhanshu for the submissions. Of the two, I prefer #1.

As a general comment, I don't necessarily feel the need to have the name or the slogan in my logo. I'm leaning towards doing something more artistic with an A and or with the AD initials. But I'm not completely against having the name if I see something that really works with it.

I'm definitely leaning towards the mark like asti provided in #3. Having a hard time deciding which I like better - the larger mark in #3, or the larger text in #4. Currently, I'm liking #3 better.

asti, I also like the colors you've used there. I know I didn't provide any color suggestions, but that's because I haven't done any branding yet, and I'm hoping the logo I go with will help me with that. Those colors are something that could work for me.

Another thought brought about by #3 - I like the way Agile is more prominent than Disciple.

Agile is really what my company is all about. Disciple was influenced by my Christian background, and the way I see it applied here is as one who really believes strongly in this ideology, and wants to spread the knowledge of it.

The 'A' in #10 is appealing to me because I can use that symbol by itself.

I like the way Agile looks. I'm not thrilled with the way Disciple appears though. I'm not sure if it's the font or the spacing or the color, but it's not that appealing to me.

#8, #9 - thanks Sudhanshu, but these don't work for me. Feels kind of like a movie poster :)

#7, I like what you've done with "Fervent Agility" with this one, subtle and off to the side. I would like to see some more color in the logo though.

asti - I'm having a hard time between #14 & #13. I really like what you've done in #14, but i like the integration of the A in #13. I wonder if there's a way to do #14 with that type of integration? Without it looking tacky of course. :)

Hussain - The company name is Agile Disciple (not Discipline) :)

I like the colors and the font in #15, but the combination doesn't really work for me. I don't really like the checkmark swoosh going through the A.

The current top 6 are all pretty much in the running at this time - #13, #28, #12, #24, #23, #27. Is there any particular feedback I could provide to work through some variations on these?

The colors I am leaning towards and have asked a couple of people to experiment with for me are blues(primary), and coral & aquamarine shades(secondary). Now I'm not a color theorist, so hopefully those colors can co-exist peacefully. :)

That's not to say I'm asking people to redesign their logos with different colors of course! I just wanted to provide my opinion on colors. I'm still totally open to completely different colors - but most likely my web page will have the colors I listed.
