Update: Would like to keep the color palette simple, so I am avoid designs with 5 or more colors and gradients.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
Update 2: We want to make sure the logo will also work as an icon and a favicon, so it makes sense to have the graphic element separable from the name and tagline.
Update: We want to make sure the bridge motif is in the logo. Working in clouds doesn't hurt, as long as they don't end up looking like a potato. Abstract designs or designs with the "EB" initials feel a little generic in comparison and we are rejecting those.
It's nice if the cloud(s) hint a relationship with Amazon Cloud and the like. Don't want it to get overly complex. We're a technology company, so it shouldn't look old fashioned.
