Further requirements

I have attached a series of images for reference for the designers. In the section where I was told to upload logos I liked, I uploaded various images that had certain traits which appealed to me. PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT LIKE ANY OF THOSE IMAGES IN THEIR ENTIRETY, I MERELY LIKE ASPECTS OF THOSE DESIGN IDEAS. Below I will detail what I liked about each image.

1. For the logo/business card/letterhead design, there should be a pure black background, complimented by a platinum colour for all text. The ring images are references for the type of platinum colour I'm looking for.

2. The background should be slightly lighter in the center. See the "Alteroy" image that I've attached as a reference.

3. The font used should be similar to the font used in the “Norris and Norris”, “Job Einsteig de”, “Tsevo”, “Palais Petite” images.

4. You should have similar icon/logo placement/positioning in your design, as there is in the “Fundrival” and “Centrum-Prawne” images.

In the section where 99designs asked me, "Do you have any images, sketches or documents that might be helpful?" I attached 4 images. These are the references that I like in terms of the logo for my company.

What I like about these images is that they are abstract, they have a dimension of being circular, and in some instances, i feel like the artist is trying to show a hand, holding a globe/the world. I would like that idea, as well as the reference images for the logo I've attached, to be looked at closely when creating my logo.

If you have any questions about the design, please feel free to email me at I get my emails straight onto my blackberry, so I will be able to give you feedback instantaneously.
