We are looking for a simple and bold logo to replace our two existing logos (attached).
We would like the logo to be clean and modern, and perhaps incorporate iconography from machinery such as a saw blade, or power tools, but it's not a requirement. We are a woodwork machinery company, so a woodworking theme would be appropriate, but nothing too loud, just smart and simple
Icon: Ideally the logo would have some kind of icon, or symbol which would be used to represent the brand on it's own when the company name is not present, but should also be part of the main logo. It would be used as the favicon (browser bookmark icon) on the website to instance, like the 99 in 99designs.
Text: The logo should incorporate the company name "Major Woodworking Equipment" or the abbreviation "MWE". A slogan of "Machinery and Equipment" can be used.
Fonts: We are open to any fonts which you see would fit the logo, though feel sans-serif, would be cleaner and bolder looking.
Colors: We would like to keep our existing brand colours of
Red, Black, White
Also open to the use of grey.
Monotone: The logo should be designed in a way, and a version provided which is monotone, so it can be used as a single colour, or engraved/embossed in a product, or reversed if needed.
File Formats: Please provide the logo files in vector EPS/Adobe Illustrator file and high resolution large transparent PNG24.
