The logo needs to fit in with the current website design at http://www.montanaprogrammer.com (so you could play off the colors that are used in the website). However, there is a chance that I will change the website design to use a lighter background soon (so it needs to work with a light or dark background).
The logo needs to have the full text in the logo: MontanaProgrammer.com . But it can contain other graphics/elements that complement these words.
Since the website has the word Montana in it, you could use an outline of the state of Montana or a photo/drawing of mountains (preferable option). But I would not consider these requirements. I'm open to other options that relate to the beauty of Montana.
Another option would be to create some artistic element that plays off of the word "Programmer".
I would like the logo to be more horizontal than vertical. For example, I want these letters to be on one line: MontanaProgrammer.com .
I don't want anything too flashy. Simple is a word that comes to mind, but also professional.
When people see the logo, I want them to feel like the website is a very popular and high demand website.
I included a few photographs I've taken of Montana that you can use as an option. You do not have to use these. If you use photos, you do not have to limit yourself to these as well...these are just options
