Slogan

Communicating Technology Clearly (TM)

What We Do

We provide Consulting, Education and Staffing for Advanced Technologies - supporting Voice, Data, Wireless networks for Civilian, Government, and Defense Department customers.

Industry

Technology

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Competence in Advanced Technologies -
#2 - Knowledge Transfer - new information will be easily understood/supported
#3 - High-Quality Engineering Support

Our Target Audience:

Decision makers who will look over many different companies who are fighting to offer Advanced Technologies services. These decision makers are usually Males, 30-65, with higher income. Most have an engineering or technical background and are keenly concerned with competence (versus "wanna be" consultants). They will often have many jobs to do simultaneously and they need (for themselves or their staff members) to have efficient and complete support (consulting, training, staffing) on the latest technology changes (like the latest version of IP - Internet Protocol). They are traditionally very conservative, since poor or bad decisions can negatively affect the entire enterprise as well as their job!!! They are usually worldly - since their operations can span several time-zones or even continents.

Color Preferences

YES: Blue, Black, Green - add highlight of a brighter color (yellow? red?) - no pastels! Color should suggest stability, integrity, ready-to-fight (military) - yet show a calm competence

This is my first time doing this - so if I'm not quick-to-respond, please be patient...I'm not a graphics person (obviously)

Thank you for continuing to offer ideas - the font/typeface that we like is the top 7 ranked submissions.
Thank you for the continued flow of ideas - since I'm not a graphics artist I feel like I'm a blind person being lead-around by "seeing" guides...and that you're helping me experience new ideas...thanks!!!!

We have extended the contest by 7 days due to several office problems (stolen and damaged equipment).

THANK YOU for the great submissions!!!

1) Please notice the ones we have top-ranked - we believe that engineering/military people would see these as: clean, distinctive, simple, "advanced"
2) We are changing the 'tag line' to: "Support - Educate - Consult" (with 'dots' between the words instead of "dashes") - so we may discuss with the winner some last-minute tweaks (thus the higher-prize for the tournament)
3) We will be able to offer more-detailed responses in the next day or two.

THANK YOU!!!!

That's some bad luck! Glad you're back - designing without getting directions is both frustrating and ineffective.

We're now entering the 'Judging' Phase...thank you for all the VERY creative ideas. We will be contacting the finalists and asking for a couple of tweaks. We've been told we have 7 days to select the "winner" and to download final files (and approve payment)...so if we're reading this incorrectly, please forgive us (we're learning along the way!!!)...

I wish we could select SEVERAL logos...so THANK YOU for the great work and wonderful ideas!!!
