Secor Strategies, LLC
I provide grant writing, proposal writing, funding development, etc. for Universities, non-profits, and small businesses. I also often take a management role in the Grants I secure. I also provide program management services for projects involving technology. Some of these projects are focused on education, minorities,small businesses, technology transfer, etc. Most of my business ties into programs funded by NASA, Department of Defense, Department of Labor, State of Florida, etc.
My audience is Universities, non-profits, and small businesses seeking to secure federal, state, or foundation-based funding. Also, people who need someone to manage short-term programs on a contract basis.
The landscape is very wide. So I think I need a simple, straightforward logo. Also, I don't want a logo that overly focuses on money, cash, etc. This is not a "I'll get you rich quick" business. Its a professional operation that is capabale of drafting 50-60 page proposals, managing complex programs, and building sustainable funding sources.
Since my business name is Secor Strategies. I currently have a base logo in which I am using a double "S". I am using red for one "S" and blue for the other "S". My business Name is placed next to the double S graphic in a black Law firm like font style.
I like the use of red and blue colors because they are slightly government-esque which my business model is closely aligned with. I am not looking for an over the top Americana design (no flags please). I am open to different font styles for the business name, or incorporating the double "s" directly in the business name. I am also open to anything involving the double "s". It could stand alone, be inside a graphic shape, be a reverse screen, etc.
I am hoping that "Secor" in the business name will stand out to the viewer.
I need a straightforward, professional looking logo. However, I also realize I need to look modern, hip, cutting-edge, etc. (I know this sounds like a typical self-contradicting client ... LOL)
It will need high res jpeg versions for both print and web.
