Logo must show this:
WE HELP SMALL MANUFACTURING COMPANIES GROW FASTER.
The symbol should show this (what I just wrote in CAPITALS above.)
"TREP" needs to be a lot bigger than "Business Development", and it needs to have a visual symbol next to it. Sometimes we will use Trep and the symbol instead of the whole logo. (For example, when we sponsor "Trep Nights" for entrepreneurs, with local colleges.)
Current web site is:
New site will be http://trepbizdev.com/
We don't want over-used images like a sales graph increasing. It is okay to use manufacturing type of images, like gears, for example, but we need something that makes it distinctive, clean and simple.
We like the boldness of Inc. Magazine's logo for the word "Trep", but don't limit yourself to exactly how that looks. The owner of our company used to own this firm, and likes the way a Pyramid represented his company of the same name: http://www.pyramidfitness.net/www.p…lcome.html
The logo needs to appeal to entrepreneurs in their 30s and 40s who are running fast-growing manufacturing companies for the first time. They have 50, 100, or 200 employees, they have a big personal stake in their company's growth, and we are asking them to trust us with their company's future. The logo has to inspire boldness, confidence, growth, and trust.
