I am looking for a logo that can be effective with or without the business name included. It should also not include the website address or any other words besides the business name. Ideally it should be able to be converted to single color for stencils (to be painted on the side of a server rack, for example). I also prefer bold colors over softer ones as well as simplicity over complication but feel free to be creative here, this is not set in stone.
My goal with this logo is to use it as a single brand for anything from business cards and stationary to shirts or on the front of a server so it should be flexible. If there is any text involved I am looking for a clear and bold typeface that is very simple and will stand out on multiple backgrounds.
My current website is http://www.beyondvm.com, I will be converting this over to be more business focused as all services are launched. The logo on the page currently came with the template so please do not feel like using it is in any way required.
If you feel that you need more background on the technology, I wrote an introductory article for that purpose here: http://beyondvm.com/guides/new-user…alization/
Please feel free to ask for additional information, I will also provide feedback as designs are submitted.
