Our Ideas and Additional Information:

For us, "Internet" is a verb. Hence the Internet works. No noun, not just a PC nor server, connection, open nor online software, but something that you do. Alone and together. A lifestyle, always on, work online, a platform that gives you opportunities. Your options. Not the factory is important, not the office, not the job, but you, your knowledge, your interests, your life, your work / life balance, your tools, the way you work. Internet within companies is used solely for websites and web shops: static. Our services consist of a more dynamic use of internet within companies, supporting social, cognitive and creative processes.

Seen as Persona: girl, 25 years, sporty, sexy but intelligent and knowledgeable. Prettyt smile, fun to hang out with. Internet addict for work and social reasons. Always online. Apple user.

Note 1: we would like to make a favicon out of (a detail from) the logo.

Note 2: tagline "internetwerken" is in Dutch and should stay in Dutch. Translated it's like: "working online", "internet work", "internet works".

Company name is now completely written in capitals, but in logo that's not necessary.

Thanks everyone so far. We're happily suprised by the speed of delivery :) We just ranked the input. Current leading logos are simple yet sophisticated. We figured out that a recognizable icon is important to us. The text "internetwerken" is sometimes hard to read. Might be slightly bigger.

Keep up the good work!

@Mare: she's still single and happy!

Thanks again everyone!

We're happy to see we're now entering "the 3d-zone". We notice that green and grey are dominant colors so far. At least in the designs we like most. Is purple/grey also an option? Or any other combination matching the briefing?

CU,
Sam.

Thanks everyone so far.

Our preferences are a simple bi-color logo with recognizable icon. We want to use the icon seperatley from logo for presentations etc. Probably in 3D. The icon might representent our global sourcing strategy, as well as our network model of cooperation. So open, transparant, worldwide, innovative, global combinations.

With still 5 days to go, we hope for some more knock-out designs!

Sam & Hjalmar!

Once again thanks everyone for the effort you're putting in. Great!

We would like to see what an additional color does to the top ranked designs.
And also a bicolor orange/purple, orange/black, red/black?
Looking forward to see some more great work!
