Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We like the idea of somehow incorporating a skyline into the logo, specifically the city of Syracuse skyline. That and/or possibly creating a skyline with a crane and/or an excavator or big piece of machinery to focus on the "development" part of the real estate. We want the design to feel concrete, like iron. Possibly a textured lettering? I have attached examples of elements we like, but are not completely sold on.
1) Syracuse city sky line
2) We like the idea of this one with the city skyline in a circle and a bull or set of horns in the middle (we just don't like this bull)
3) We like this one, but maybe with a syracuse specific skyline or the crane/machine situation from above?
4) These are some logos we've started with that we like but don't love. The second one with the horns behind the heptagon we like, but maybe if the heptagon felt more solid and was textured like metal or iron possibly.
We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
