Industry

Technology

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Seamlessly integrated technologies
#2 - Technical excellence
#3 - Dedication to customer service and satisfaction

Our Target Audience:

For software development and IT outsourcing services, target audience is virtually any business requiring these services.
For US Customs and EDI web-based services, target audience would be marine container terminals and ocean carriers.

The term "Legato" is a music term meaning "smoothly connected" (as in networking, etc.)

Color Preferences

Blue, white, grey, black, primarily, but not strictly limited to these.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Because "Legato" is a musical term, my existing extremely simple logo is done in a times italic font in all lower case, consistent with how it would be seen on sheet music. In music, ff a passage is to be played "legato", it is denoted with a slur over or under a series of notes - this could also be incorporated into the logo.

My existing logo (on a very poor web site) is at www.legatotech.com. This site does not represent all of the company's products and services and will be completely redesigned soon.

I want to thank everyone for their entries.

Given how cumbersome and slow this site is, it's taking too much time for me to comment on every entry. If your entry gets moved to the "not interested" column and there is no comment, it means that it's not really what we're looking for and that we have no suggestions on how to improve it to get close.

Again I apologize for not being able to leave feedback on every entry, but logotournament needs to work on this site to make it easier or contest holders to manage received entries.

Thanks everyone for all of your work on this logo so far. There are truly a lot of talented designers out there.

After seeing your entries and comments, the team here has decided that we would ideally like a logo that includes an "icon" or symbol that we can use either with the company name text or stand-alone (as a favorites icon, etc). The general message we're trying to convey with the icon is "technologies smoothly connected". We have come to like the color schemes in our #1 and #2 ranked entries, but we're tech geeks, not artists, so what do we know? We may also extend the contest if necessary, so it's not too late to get your ideas in.

Thanks again for all of your entries and we look forward to seeing your new ideas!

Wow! We were told that a lot of entries would come in toward the end of the contest, but we never expected this many! Thanks everyone for all of the great ideas!

That being said, I have to once again point out that with the slow speed of this site and the cumbersome UI, it's very difficult and time-consuming to comment on every designer's entries. It's difficult and slow to navigate between leaving feedback and ranking entries, so if your entry gets moved to the "not interested" section, it means that it wasn't what we were looking for and we don't really have any helpful feedback to leave - but please try another idea!

Thanks again for all of your entries!
