I have an idea for what the logo should contain. Basically, I was imagining a bare viking: a naked viking. I would like the logo to be a little more cartoonish, and ideally sitting in front of a computer or monitor, pounding away on the keyboard, hard at work. It would be nice if it was a logo or graphic that could be converted into an animated image with him working furiously at the computer. Something that could be modified fairly easily to generate just a handful of frames showing a basic animation (I DO NOT NEED ANIMATION FOR THIS PROJECT).
The amount of nakedness should be enough to get the point across but not vulgar. Ideally, it would be a rear or side profile. Again, enough for people to understand that this guy is actually in the buff.
The tagline for the company is "Down and dirty development", but the tagline does not need to be in the logo (I'm just providing it to give you a better idea of what I am looking to portray).
I am open to how the guy looks from an "intelligence" perspective. He can look like a geek Viking (is there such a thing) or just a plunderer who happens to write code. This was my original thought for the look of the logo, but I may be too close to the idea and would welcome any other ideas presented by the creative types out there.
I will need vector graphics/artwork for this when it is completed.
