The company name has absolutely nothing to do with accounting! The aim is to stand out from the crowd; be a little different; and to use an image which viewed in a positive way.
You may not know what a kookaburra is - I have attached a few illustrations/pictures. The kookaburra is a large, good looking, and slightly mischievous bird. (Try having a BBQ with a kookaburra nearby. They are meat eaters and will steal your sausages at the slightest chance - even stealing it off your fork as you move it from plate to mouth!).
Kookaburras have a distinctive call - which sounds very similar to a laugh.
The logo should express a sense of cheekiness, of fun. But be serious enough that once the amusement is over, one can be taken seriously. For all you Australians out there, the kookaburra has a larrikin image - a bit unconventional, a bit mischievous, but usually loyal and with good solid values.
Colours? The bird is brown, white (off white perhaps) with this striking blue on their wings. I am not a fan of the colour brown, and if we are looking at colours from the bird, then the blue and the white are preferable. I could live with eg a simple brown border around a logo or similar, but please - not too much brown.
The logo will be used on our website, our business cards and our stationery. And for our (SaaSu) accounting system we will need an image (jpg, png, or gif), max 100kb and max size 200px by 60px.
