How Benvie started their button or icon journey

Summary

Four icons are needed for the categories of Web Design, Web Development, E-Commerce, and Internet Marketing. These icons will appear in two places: on the homepage as watermarks BEHIND the text describing that particular services, and on a services page next to the header for that category.

Company name

Ingenuity Studios

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

The purpose of the icons is to add flair and presence to the page while not looking overly gaudy and overly complex. The website which these icons will be used on is http://www.ingenuitystudios.net. The methodology behind the web design company I am creating is simple, clean, professional and I want that expressed with these icons. On the homepage they will be a subtle enhancement as watermarks which become more saturated on mouse hover. On the services page they will anchor the text describing each category. I do want them to be colorful (appropriate for each icon) but also simple.

The concepts for each icon are as follows:
- Web Design - Art Palette. Example: http://www2.istockphoto.com/file_th…ted-3d.jpg
- Web Development: Gears. Example: http://www2.istockphoto.com/file_th…wheels.jpg
- E-Commerce: Shopping Cart. Example: http://www2.istockphoto.com/file_th…-carts.jpg
- Internet Marketing: Graph. Example: http://www2.istockphoto.com/file_th…iagram.jpg
The examples above are just to give you a concept of what I'm looking for. Don't feel obliged to copy them closely or anything, it's just the concept for each that I'm interested in.

On the homepage the space available for each is roughly 225x150px (reference http://www.ingenuitystudios.net while designing). On the services page the size will be roughly half that. What you produce will I presume be a much larger size and I will scale it down, but keep those dimensions in mind when designing.

Wants

- Simple, clean, professional
- Consistent look
- Good use of color
- Vector art look and feel
- Usable as both watermark and normal
- Usable at both largish dimensions (225x150) and smaller (maybe 112x75 or 75x50)

Don't want

- No monochrome designs
- No words, just icons
