I need a logo that is somewhat iconic and can be used in the footer/credits for applications that Springhaus Software creates.
The logo should render well both large and small - I will need to use it as a favorite icon for websites and still want its elements to be distinguishable when viewed in the browser's address bar or bookmarks.
I'm not tied to any particular colors. Bright, "fresh", spring like colors might make sense owing to having Spring in the name - lighter shade of blue, green, orange .. not tied to having any or all of these but I'm interested in seeing what you, the designer, wants to do.
The logo should invoke the sentiment of bringing fresh ideas/applications to the marketplace and to problem-solving.
Keep in mind the meaning of springhouse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springhouse), so feel free to use water elements in the design.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
