Brand Name


we previously had a 99designs contest for the logo which ended brilliantly! See the results of our PREVIOUS logo contest at


a Logo that visually conveys the idea that is a site for..

  • System Administrators
  • IT Professionals

In other words, people who work with and troubleshoot *servers* and *networks* professionally, for a living. This is NOT a site for regular desktop/laptop computer users, but for real pros!

Don't Wants
  • Avoid generic cliche "computer" or "server" themes please!
  • Pick DIFFERENT colors than the existing logo
  • Exploring thematic similarity between the logo and the logo is encouraged (but do use different colors)
