What We Do

We are a public policy and environmental consulting firm.

Industry

Consulting

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Professional
#2 - Innovative
#3 - Modern

Our Target Audience:

Mostly highly-educated school administrators, architects, city officials, environmental consultants. All age groups.

Color Preferences

It must have Green (but can definitely incorporate other colors if necessary).

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The logo should use the company initials in someway "SII" - we are well known by the initials "SII". I would like for the logo to be more "professional" than "cartoon-like". Think of Architecture or Planning firms - they usually have very simple, but dynamic logos.

Great start so far. However, we should really incorporate "SII" somehow in the logo (eg. #2 and #3).

It's not necessary to use "environmental" images as part of the logo. It looks like many of you are using symbols of trees or leaves as part of the design. The environmental consulting is only one part of our company. I'm thinking of a more streamlined (edgy) logo - think Architecture/Design firms.

Did anyone notice that the #1 ranked logo (entry 33) says SSI as opposed to SII. Someone might want to change that.

I'm really pleased by the submissions so far. As you'll see by the top ranked designs, we are looking for a strong design that stays away from the plant/leaf references. As more designs come in I will start giving more detailed feedback - but for now - think "strong" "professional" but edgy is definitely ok as well.
