1. The logo will have to be suitable for use on a website, business card, letterhead, t-shirt etc. We would prefer a logo that uses a minimal amount of colors and can also be used in black and white. Reversibility is a plus.
2. As to what kind of designs we like, we strongly believe that "less is more" when it comes to design. A sleek and professional design, "cool, yet professional" and maybe some playfulness.
