In terms of text design and prominence, we really like the Tesla, Oracle and Stark Industries logo, however, we're also wanting a shape (perhaps a test tube / beaker / science to tie in with the "Labs" analogy).
I've therefore attached the original Marketing Labs logo we had designed. Although we like the beaker tie in, the whole logo isn't professional enough - it is a bit too informal / comes across as cheap.
We love the professionalism of Tesla, Oracle and Stark industries in comparison.
The reason I have attached the Apple and Nike logos is because we love how the shape represents the company - e.g. whenever you see the Apple sign, you know it's Apple the company. We therefore want the test tube / beaker tie to be more simple and professional so that it in itself, overtime, can become the shape that Marketing Labs is renowned for.
The logo has to convey extreme quality and respect. It must be of interest to huge corporates from airlines to banks while still being modern and fresh. It shouldn't be too complicated, as such, more simple, modern and sexy. It must make you want to consume the product and know more.
