I'm looking for something I can use on my website (nczonline.net) as well as in my books, my newsletters, on business cards, and on Twitter.
Ideally, the logo would be a shape plus lettering, such that the shape could be used on its own as an avatar on Twitter. Also ideally, the logo is mostly black text on white background with a single color accent. What I'd like to do is have the flexibility to change the single color accent depending on where I place the logo, so the color itself isn't all that important. I'm hoping this would also make it easy to invert the logo with white text and an accent color on a black background.
You should feel free to play with the capitalization and spacing. So "NCZOnline", "NCZ Online", "nczonline", etc. are all okay.
You can see some of my books here:
The two words I'd most use to describe the logo I'm looking for are "professional" and "modern".
Some logos I like:
1. http://lea.verou.me/ (the symbol, not the lettering)
2. https://www.nostarch.com/ (symbol and lettering together)
3. http://www.smashingmagazine.com/ (symbol and lettering together)
