We would really like to see designs based upon logo ideas as seen in this great link - http://www.communicationagency.com/
(We like most of the examples here and especially ones with acronyms in gray color and the top left corner or top right corners of the acronym having a picture of connected or not connected squares that depicts databases)
Also, the full name of our company need not be in the logo name.
A few keywords that represent our sustainability consulting business and which we would in some way like to see incorporated within the designed logo are;
Database (can also be depicted as a cylindrical stack as shown in the Lucid DB logo design or as horizontal bars)
Reliability and scalability
Life Cycle thinking
We want a clean and sophisticated looking logo, not boring, not amateurish, something mature that conveys the technicality as well as the environmental significance and importance of our work.
The logo should express 'technical' or 'database' incorporated into a design that portrays an element of 'sustainability'.
We are hoping for a simple image such as the pre consultants logo attached to the brief - with our name as a part of it or within it, that conveys the purpose of our work.
Need the cleanness of a corporate logo - something professional looking, can be abstract.
Please do not restrain yourself to the Word mark logo type, we also would love to see samples of Pictorial or Abstract mark logos!
