How Maginot Technologies started their logo design journey
Maginot Technologies is a tongue-in-cheek stealth identity.
The "stealth" name for this startup is the identity the company will use before it comes up with it's permanent name. We need a simple lettering logo and business card combination.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a business card design and a logo. However, we don't think the logo has to have an image element. It might just be lettering. This is quick and dirty, compared to our previous contests, and the prize is commensurately lower.
The logo should fit easily into a standard business card. It needs two elements:
The name: "Maginot Technologies"
The tagline: "We hold the line... for YOU!"
If this sounds like a strange choice for a tagline, don't worry about it. If you want to figure out the inside joke badly enough, the Internet will teach you all about Maginot and Lines.
We have this idea that the tagline is in italics, in a sort of 50's way. But maybe not.
- One possible interesting pathway is to use a 50's kind of corporate feel, in keeping with the cheesy 50's tagline.Another related idea is to use the Fallout3 version of 50's Americana design: http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/hom…UM_ExUVk1F this is probably too over the top and derivative, but it might be interesting.Or possibly a more 60's button down corporate feel If you feel like doing an image/graphic as well, that could be very interesting. But we're not expecting anything crazy for this prize level.
