We are a young startup that makes agricultural robots. I'd like the logo to convey an industrial, ready-to-work sentiment. For colors, I'd like a primary color of a dark blue that inspires confidence while still looking like the machinery is ready to work. A secondary color of silver or gray is meant to remind of robotics and cutting-edge technology. On the machine itself the silver is often unpainted stainless steel. Additional colors can be white or another accent color. I've included a picture of the robot (being pulled behind a John Deere tractor) for reference.
I have two sample logos that will hopefully provide inspiration. The first is a B and R, with the R reminding the viewer of a river. The second is simply a river icon, although I think this version looks too much like a lightning bolt.
Extra points for designers who clean up and improve upon either of the two logos. I'm open to completely new designs, but would very much like to see several options that look very close to the designs already completed.
For the logo that is light blue and has a square icon, I'd like to see: 1) darker blue used; 2) an icon that looks more like a river and less like a lightning bolt; 3) larger font for the word technology; 4) keep the clean, crisp, industrial feel
For the logo that is a B and R that looks like a river, I'd like to see: 1) keep the general color palette; 2) keep the icon with one color; 3) make the R in the BR icon look a bit more clean, crisp and industrial; 4) make the Technology word in the text spread the whole length of Blue River; 5) change the font of the word Technology so the C and G don't have the funny ends to them
I'll be checking the submissions frequently and will provide as much feedback as I can. Thanks! I look forward to seeing all of your creative designs.
