Industry

Internet

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Powerful
#2 - Intelligent / Logical
#3 - Simplicity

Our Target Audience:

Prospective clients which are usually small businesses but will also include medium sized businesses.

Color Preferences

I'm pretty open on colors.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

I don't really have any ideas, hence me coming here :) As indicated above, I like logos with pictoral or abstract marks in them. If it scales well into a favicon, then that's a bonus. However, please don't limit the submissions to only ones that will scale as I don't require it do so.

Style

Wordmark

Stylized type that may include small abstract or pictorial elements.
Pictorial Mark

Literal or representative imagery is used to symbolize the brand.
Abstract Mark

Abstract shapes and symbols convey an idea or feeling.
Famous Logos displayed under fair use to enrich the general publics' knowledge of graphic design.

A note to the artists: I like icons that have a 3 dimensional appearance to them, or at least use gradients.

Also, even though I put the sliders fairly close to neutral, I didn't mean for the logo to be neutral. The ones that I would move a good deal farther out are: colorful, serious, and refined. I'd move exotic and sporty a little farther out.

Since I'm really bad and describing what I like, I've put together a collection of logos on this site that appealed to me. You can view them here: http://www.msbware.com/misc/logos.html

why didn't you pm mare ulahts? trying to point it out publicly isn't the way to go. you should have pm'd mare or tyler to let them know of the similarities. but in my opinion, its just a common shape for logo design now.
