Project Tiki is a new firm focused on creating our own apps for Apple and Android as well as providing services to produce apps for others. This company is an outgrowth of two online marketing companies that have been working in the space for a number of years. Project Tiki will be a very collaborative venture and be pulling the best talent for each project. There is a fair amount of whimsy among the team, but we don't want the image for the company to be "cartoonish".
We will be using this logo to market our own apps in the app stores as well as on our website to attract new customers. We will also be trying to pursue prospective business clients ranging in size from Fortune 25 to medium size businesses to win their business to create their apps. So that means there needs to be a certain level of professionalism for people to take us seriously.
While the name invokes images of surf boards, tiki totem poles, grass huts....we want a fresh, updated look that builds off that, but lives in the digital world. We are not looking for heavy Tiki influence. Ideally the logo will have a small iconic element that could live on it's own (become a little icon stamp that can be used on pages, biz cards, etc...) and then have a strong visual text. Think modern web 2.0, etc...with a tiki twist.
Can be a 4 color design, but want to be able to use black and white if needed.
