The Company needs a corporate identity including a logo, business cards, letterheads, With Compliments slips, a design to be printed onto CD/DVDs, and a document folder (by that I mean something like http://www.ballarat.edu.au/corpserv containing some documents, a promo DVD, business card etc).
The designs need to reflect the Company's quirky and idiosyncratic mentality while retaining a degree of professionalism commensurate with the stakeholders we wish to attract.
Don't be afraid to think outside the square with unusual patterns, textures, layers, cutouts and materials (within reason - they still need to be printed!).
In terms of colours, we're totally open to ideas, although it would be advisable to stay relatively bright & vibrant in keeping with the above theme. Some colours (not necessarily the ones we'll go with) to consider are: #330066, #66FF00, #FF3300, #0099FF, black and metallics.
Again, some suggestions (it may well be we choose a design with none of these included - they're merely to contextualise our thinking) are: cameras, a bullet 'shooting' through the logo, targets, cartoony thinking, technology/web 2.0.
It's totally up to you whether you wish to include the Company's Pty Ltd status in the logo (for those outside Australia, Pty Ltd is similar to Inc., etc and represents the Company's incorporation status). We'd lean toward it not being on the logo, but it should obviously be on the business cards and letterhead.
Please be advised that we will also be holding a competition for website design at the conclusion on this one.
