How thenerd started their logo design journey

Summary

Hi there, I've had requests from people to do some java training so I want to create a site to do this. First step is I'll need a logo, then in a subsequent contest, I'll need a wordpress template.

Brand name

leadingcoder.com

Description

Desired Style:
Bold, primary, digg, apple, orb, slashdot

Accepted File Formats:
Vector Formats (.eps, .pdf or .ai)

Because this training is hopefully going to turn people into a leading coder, I called the site leadingcoder.com. The logo is for leading coder, we can leave out the com. I'm not sure whether the words look better together or apart, actually I'll leave it up to you.

Like I said, once I'm happy with the result of this contest and have chosen a winner, then I'm going to go on to create a coded design contest for an overall design that would need to be a wordpress template. I thought I'd start with the logo though.

 

Designs that inspire me:

Digg, Apple, Slashdot, Orb

People that go to this site potentially also go to:

Slashdot, O'Reilly, Facebook

A bunch of words:

human,hi-tech, in-position, not cliche computer, smart, intelligent, simplicity, optimistic, open, competitive, elegant, reliable, back to basics

Anything else:

Bold primary colours? I'm open to having some shapes, some image component to the logo etc, up to you. I'll let you know when I like it or when I don't.  You can do that funky web 2.0 gradiented/aqua style/reflection stuff if that's your bag, I quite like that, but I want a logo that will endure past fads.  You don't have to do one like that.  Up to you.

I'm looking forward to what you come up with!
