Included is a new website design which the logo should complement.
I want to communicate
But with a light touch, more like a smart funny friend teaching you complex topics, instead of a boring lecture series approach to learning.
If the logo incorporates a sense of technology, that'd be a bonus.
Similarly, if the logo incorporates the idea of demystifying, shining a light on confusion, simplifying, that'd be great too!
These ideas can be abstract, and still have an impact, as the target audience is generally pretty visual and smart.
The logo must have a full version, and then a square version for use in social media, avatar, favicon, etc. The square version doesn't need to have the full name, but should have identifiable graphical elements from the main logo.
