Please note--this is our second logo contest. We had some updates to make to our brief, but this contest is guaranteed; we are definitely going to be selecting a logo. If you entered the first contest please feel free to re-enter as we liked a lot of those logos!
We're a brand new market research (surveys, focus groups, etc) and consulting company. The name Luminas is supposed to invoke illumination. We help our clients grow their business by helping understand their customers and how to best market to them. We specialize in health-related research but do not deal with that exclusively.
We're want to communicate creativity, collaboration, intelligence.
We are open to any ideas, please do whatever comes to mind!
A few things we have toyed with, please do not feel limited to this list:
The name Luminas is supposed to invoke illumination, so anything to do with light or ideas--a beam of light, a spotlight, a lightbulb, the sun or moon, etc
Our company is based on a team drawn from a large company, so anything to do with change or renewal
There are three main partners and all of our last names begin with the letter L, as does Luminas, so a super-prominent L or other play on that
In terms of colors, we think that oranges, yellows, reds will reflect the "illimunation" idea, but would be interested in something more colorful than just that--either a rainbow of colors or some kind of complementary color inclusion in the logo.
Special requests and how this logo will be used:
Our work involves a lot of presentations, and often we present these in powerpoint using client ppt templates. That means the logo has to look good with a lot of different background colors, and ultimately we'll probably request a transparent background. Most of the background colors will be white or otherwise lighter colors, so please provide concepts on light backgrounds.
