We'd like that to be a designer decision, informed by the fact that we would like to use the logo in the following ways:
1. In the top-left of our website.
2. As a branded signature in the footer of each of our client's websites (i.e. "powered by GeekSalt")
3. We'd like to use a portion of the logo as the favicon for all websites that we create.
4. If we ever require business cards, we'll use the logo there too, but this is less necessary.
For these reasons, although the logo will be colourful, we'll need a version that will work at low resolution (perhaps as low as 16px or 32px high) and that will work at the footer of a site regardless of its design.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We want to convey the fact that we're a couple of experienced engineers (geeks) who understand the needs of the restaurant industry, so our current placeholder logo is a stylised salt shaker next to a courier font, with the company name expressed as one word, perhaps with capitalised letters (as in "GeekSalt" or "geekSalt" or "geeksalt"). However, we are *very* open to any sort of interpretation that will work for our target market.
