Update: 6/8/12 HKT
Thank you for everyone for their effort, we have seen some interesting designs, however we would like to provide some additional direction to help everyone experiment with other areas:
-Please do not use the letters as the basis of the design (e.g., S and D combination), we have only seen a few entries that use the play on letters that we like
-Experiment with having a pictorial/shape that describes symbiosis, here is a link of the definition of symbiosis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbiosis
-Please experiment with other colors aside from blue and green (e.g., pastel colors, or monochrome)
-Many of the logos we have seen are quite commercial, and may infringe copyrights (e.g., the Swisher floor cleaner “S” logo)
Thank you for everyone’s effort!
Here are some areas we would like to explore:
-We prefer a clean and minimalistic design, it can be a little playful, with some bright accent colors. You can be creative with the word symvio, and digital does not have to be in the pictorial logo itself.
-Symvio is derived from the greek word for "symbiosis". Meaning we have a symbiotic close relationship with our business customers. A design that plays on symbiosis would be great
-Feel free to experiment with colors, at the moment we do not have any color preference
-We would like our logo to feel a little playful and artsy, but at the same time have a feeling of being reliable (as we provide all the backend ecommerce services for retail firms)
-We are a startup ecommerce company in China, but our main customers will be foreign companies. It would be great if the logo has some element that relates to China, but this is not mandatory.
Logos from the following websites are styles we like:
We would like a web and print compatible file type after the design is selected.
Here are some things to consider:
-Again we prefer a minimalistic design with space on the card, so that it does not look too cluttered
-Please have the card landscape only
-The back (where the name address are) can have a large logo or pattern of some sort, but should not compete with the words for space
-We do not have any preference on card color at the moment
-The card can have embossed lettering or on the design, but do not do too much, please utilize with moderation
Here is an examples of cards we like:
