How JoshuaMcKenty started their logo design journey

Company name

PISTON

Overview

Piston is a cloud company, providing the products and services that make cloud computing usable. We're built on the OpenStack foundation - an open source platform for cloud providers and end users.
We're an engineering-driven organization - our founders came from NASA and Rackspace - and simply "good enough" never is. We're delivering on the dream of cloud computing - many others are still just dreaming.
Piston takes the hot air of Cloud Computing, and turns an engine of change.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our customers are the CIOs and IT Managers of the Global 2000. They've got million-dollar problems in billion-dollar businesses, and no time for fluff.

Requirements

We need a logo, a version one identity, that helps customers and partners understand where we are in this space.

Logo needs to do all the typical logo-ish things: look recognizable at a small size (think favicon), and impressive at a large size (think: sign on building); stand nicely with or without the name;

DO: Play with color
DON'T: Bake the domain name into it (as it may change).
DO: Draw inspiration from steam engines, hot air balloons, model airplanes, the openstack logo itself, etc.
DON'T: Use cats, dogs, or horses.

As a simple concept, a single piston (with crankshaft) sprouting out of a cloud (drawn as the traditional internet symbol) is certainly workable.

The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)

Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
