As I am working on an image "update", I will eliminate my old (quite unprofessional) logo, so feel free to create a completely new one without any restrictions. You can take a look at my old design at http://www.house-of-translation.eu
Regarding the colours, I prefer clear and strong colours and contrasts (e.g. dark blue and white). A simple, appealing and professional design. I liked the idea of the circle mixing with the brand name (see website), but it was elaborated in a very ragged way. Feel free to use this as a starting point or create something absolutely new.
Although I usually used dark blue for my old logo, I am open for different colours (e.g. I like the FedEx-logo, which is quite colourful).
Please send in vector based art, so the image can be resized without losing quality.
I have received many designs in blue and with globes. However, many translation agencies use globes, so some alternative symbols, signs and colours would be very much appreciated.
