We're looking for a logo design with an industrial or architectural feel, to convey the industrious, hands-on nature of our business consulting services.
The logo design may incorporate industrial/architectural design elements (e.g. cogs, drawing tools, mechanical parts) and/or incorporate the design qualities of an industrial drawing/blueprint...or maybe an industrial sketch. The logo may be two- or three-dimensional....or perhaps a hybrid of both (e.g. part 2D-design, part 3D-rendering, maybe even a blending the two together to achieve an effect similar to that in Escher's "Drawing Hands" lithograph)....
Our preference is probably more towards a "detailed illustration" style logo, rather than vector graphics, perhaps blending technical drawing and industrial design sketch styles.
.....but we are VERY open to other creative design ideas.
Please note however, if you do incorporate "cliched" design elements (e.g. a cog) into the logo, we ask that you do so in a unique way. A clip-art image of a cog next to the company name is NOT what we're looking for.
We're looking for a clean, professional, innovative design, without it being too austere or cold. The design should be contemporary even though the overall design theme may be more of the industrial-age. Our culture leans more towards the edgy, rather than traditional corporate, so we'd like that to be reflected in the logo.
It is anticipated that the winning logo design will become the basis for additional design requirements, including stationary and website design. We anticipate working with the winning logo designer on these additional projects.
