**OPPORTUNITY FOR A DESIGNER TO HELP WITH FUTURE BRAND WORK CONNECTED TO THIS LOGO DESIGN**
Teleios Shield is provider and installer of active-shooter security systems that alert authorities to gunfire in an enclosed area by using a network of gunshot detection devices. These devices work together to create a "shield" that can detect gunshots in any room of the building or facility and immediately send a report to police and emergency response units. Additionally, this system can generate a live evacuation route by showing where the gunfire is taking place and what the fastest and safest escape route is.
This company intends to work very closely with schools, government buildings, and large and small businesses to provide the fastest and most effective method of contacting law enforcement during an active shooter situation and save as many lives as possible.
"Teleios" is a Greek word meaning perfect, complete, and whole, a reference to this company's effort to provide what we consider the most complete security technology currently available for this kind of disaster prevention. The shield is an obvious reference to the protective and preventative nature of this company and the device itself.
We want the logo to communicate these elements, as well as the tech-y nature of it. We’re motivated to have this logo be a readily-identifiable mark that communicates these concepts without being a run-of-the-mill, generic “security company” shield. We’re not opposed to shields in theory, but they should be handled in a modern, artistic way that separates them from the rest of the standard shield logos. We’ve uploaded some samples in the brief, and one thing we’d like to note is the “T” integration into a modern, abstract shield design. This could be a good way of communicating covering and protection without crossing over too much into the traditional shield.
We’re interested in seeing blue as the primary color, but we’re open to artistic interpretation as well.
Specifically with schools being a primary audience, we want this logo to communicate safety, protection, peace of mind, defense, and completeness. Help us protect our school children, public servants, and anyone who is put at risk by an active shooter scenario by designing a logo that commands attention and will spread the word about Teleios Shield!
