How FXTrade started their logo design journey
FXTrade is an FX margin trading company based in Japan. We want to be recognized as a professional, dynamic and a leading company. The brand needs to look corporate.
FXTRADE, FXTRADE JAPAN
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The logo should be a modified font in a shade of dark blue or dark grey as main colour. Famous logos we like are: "Scottrade", "Visa". We are also interested in seeing an icon created out of the "FX" or a stylized "X". Examples of sites doing this are http://www.fxonline.co.jp/en, http://www.flextrade.com/, and http://www.ebs.com/products/. We would like to see two versions of the logo, one just FXTRADE and the other adding JAPAN. All letters should be in uppercase. The "JAPAN" should be somehwhere below the main logo as we don't want it too long, and it should be much smaller than the "FXTRADE".
Modified font type
Bold font + Italic
Professional / corporate
Clean and well brandable
Must be flat (ie. no 3d or swirly letters)
Too much artwork
