we are a small online marketing agency located in northern italy. We exist since 1995. The name of our company is "Gardena.Net". "Gardena" because the name of the valley we are is "Val Gardena". Our clients are mostly hotels, apartments and b&b out of the valley because Val Gardena is a popular vacation destination.
Our current website (http://www.gardena.net) is very old. There is a relaunch in work at the moment and we are not sure if we want to keep the actual logo (see attachments). Because of that we want to catch some logo ideas through 99designs.
We all agree that the name (Gardena.Net) is the important thing an we want to keep it. We also decided that we either keep the old font or take something totaly new. So you shouldn't use the old font. A new font can look similiar but doesn't have to.
For your design(s) you can choose or mix the following:
- only company name
- company name with slogan
- company name in combination with icon or graphical element
- company name with slogan with icon or graphical element
The graphical element can be something next to the name or something that is kind of "merging" with or "coming out" of the font.
Because our primary clients work in travel sector (hotels) the graphical element can be something in this direction. But it can also be something that is more technical and generaly would be connected with a traditional web agency.
It is not important to keep the red color in "net". You can decide other colors for your own but colors should be quiet and not too explosive. Your logo should be simple and communicate trust, self-confidence and creativity.
Looking forward to the designs of all participants!
