I would like the logo to be worked into the Valor part of Valor Healthcare Systems, Inc. Although the full name is what will appear on packaging of products, business cards, websites, literature etc., at times the word Valor will be on pieces of equipment without the rest of the title. So, whether a customer will see Valor or Valor Healthcare Systems, Inc., the logo will appear since it will be only worked into the Valor part of the name.
Even though this company represents medical supplies, I do not want a picture or symbol of the medical industry as the logo. Instead, I would like something, perhaps abstract, worked into the word Valor. The word Valor must be easy to read however, as it will be easily visible and recognizable on a piece of equipment or a box or a catalogue.
If you think it is too difficult to work a logo into the word Valor, then maybe a small logo that goes over the word Valor or to the left of it might be more effective. Be creative!
