The final logo should be clean, non-techincal or computer feeling as our primary appeal to our audience is of a technical nature, but rather of a cost-reduction and business "balancing spreadsheet" nature.
We have identified what we feel is an excellent layout of icon placement in relation to the ITLynk name.
We have selected the direction of a stylized puffin to capture the personality of ITLynk in the form of a memorable character that is more relaxed that a straight-laced logo. (For inspiration, see the implementation of the frog illustrative art for http://www.freepbx.org/freepbx )
The stylized puffin should be cleaned up with an illustrative flare and be cleanly executed so it works as a logo mark.
We envision a 3-color logo using black/grey, orange and blue (puffin's feet). Current colors can certainly be adjusted.
See attached files for logo layout and large puffin art to be refined.
