[Update 3: Please see attached hand-drawn page with options of layout. Don't feel constrained by it. It's just to give you ideas. But, gain, letters "ИР" cannot be the main elements of the logo; it has to be pictograms. Also, for now, please ignore the color requirements; let's first figure out the content and graphics, then we'll work on colors with the winner]
[Update 2: Please kindly note that using the first 2 letters as the core element of the logo--as first 18 submitted designs do--is a dead end]
If I had to decide now, the logo should have the following. But don't take it as everything 100% required or set in stone. I don't know what I don't know. I rely on your artistic judgement and taste to come up with other ideas. [Update 1: #1 "Tastefully(!) feature pictograms or abstract images related to the 3 areas of operations of the company" is a must, not nice-to-have]
1. Tastefully(!) feature pictograms or abstract images related to the 3 areas of operations of the company. Maybe, an imaginary circle divided in 3 segments, with pictograms generally inside those segments. I'm not set on this. I look for expressions of your own artistic taste
2. The 2 first letters of each word (i.e., "И" and "Р") should be emphasized and visually comprise a visually connected set (doesn't have to have a physical connector).
3. At the end, we'd need 2 versions: One on white background, and one on a dark background
4. Red and gold (#ffe900) would ideally be subtly(!) featured. For the version on a dark background, white should be present somewhere near red and gold
5. Abstract elements that have a relevant recognizable meaning are welcome. But abstract elements without a recognizable meaning are not. Also, visual elements with "stock" feel should be ideally avoided.
