I need to mention that we are wanting to steer clear of having a symbol in the logo. We are looking more for a wordmark logo, one that is mainly a font with maybe a little flair to it, some unique design element. LIke Amazon's logo, it is mainly a typeface but with the added arrow. Or Citigroup with the red curve over the letter "t".

Another thing worth noting is that we would like to see the word Efficiency be more prominent than the word Digital. Maybe make the word Efficiency bold or darker. Or make Digital lighter.

Some suggestions, not mandates.

First off, thanks for all the submissions so far, it's refreshing to see different styles and versions.

Currently, we're liking different styles from some of the submissions so far.

One thing we're pretty certain about is that we are wanting to steer away from all lower case. Capitalizing first letter of each word or using all caps is the direction we'd like to go.

#9 - We're curious to see the words stacked, like how #24 did, and bold the word Efficiency.
#33 - We really like the font choice and layout, but could we see it without the arches?
#10 - We like the symbol, overall layout, and usage of colors. Could we see it with a different font? A more modern serif font.
#12 - Could we see this logo without the symbol and capitalizing the "D" in Digital and "E" in Efficiency?
