GOAL: We are looking for a clever logo that shows that the training and workshops we provide to companies are valuable, practical, and enjoyable.
KEYWORDS: fun, warm, tech, geeky, asymmetrical, computer, lab, sharing knowledge, data, algorithm, (maybe vintage or retro), clever (but not too clever), not too abstract.
- warm and fun (our workshops are practical, interactive, and enjoyable)
- custom (our workshops are customised to the needs of our clients)
- technical and high quality (again, just like our workshops)
WE THINK(!) WE WANT THE LOGO TO:
- be clever by including one or two elements from data or computing (such as a keyboard, zeros and ones) from science (such a flask) or an actual workshop (such as a gear, a wrench, a screwdriver)
- not have too much symmetry
- have the entire name "Data Science Workshops" in the same font and same size. Please include the spaces.
- maybe add ".com" to the name in the logo (we have claimed the domain datascienceworkshops.com)
PREVIOUS 99DESIGNS LOGO'S WE LIKE (from the contest selection page):
- Handmade (because it cleverly includes a hand, has a round element, and the name is part of the imagery)
- Paimsook parasail (because it includes an actual sail, has vintage colours)
- De online fabriek (because it includes a factory, which is fabriek in Dutch)
- Emotiv (because the name has been cleverly integrated with the balloon, playful)
- SpotNinja (because it is fun, clean, unique, and includes a ninja)
- Tour de sky, the classical one (because it is retro, has a round element, and is not symmetrical)
WE DON'T PREFER LOGO'S THAT:
- are entirely symmetrical
- are too abstract
- have too few colors
- could have been made for any company
- only contain the name (we want some imagery)
- change some letters of the name to numbers as it may be confusing to people what our domain is (it is datascienceworkshops.com)
- leave out the spaces in the name (it's quite a long name already)
Thanks! Looking forward to your ideas!
