Desired Color Scheme:
red, blue, grey
Looking for something to simultaneously convey authority but also energy and cutting-edge
We [MediaConnect] are looking for a logo for an event that we run called Influence Forum. It should site well beside our current logo which can be seen at http://www.mediaconnect.com.au, so we'd probably like to keep close to the colour scheme. The idea of the event is to bring together a whole bunch of influencers - ie journalists, bloggers, analysts, etc. It will be used on a website, on brochures and on signage.
It would be good if its easily adapted to be updated each year for each years event; ie Influence Forum 2007, so can be used as either a date specific or as a stand-alone ie just Influence Forum. We would want the art for both versions.
The Influence word should be the focus of the logo. Forum is incidental and we may well want to spin off other Influence products, so a logo that is adaptable in that sense would be ideal.
We like the idea of keeping the "connect" idea going but be aware there are a lot of very similiar logos, along the lines of our original MediaConnect logo. ie http://www.mediacontacts.com/en/home/
We'll been playing around with a tagline 'Connecting spheres of influence' but we've not settled on it
