This project is to refine and polish our working logo. The logo should be black & white (no color, grayscale, etc...). Keeping the sailing concept is an absolute - so the icon should be an abstract sailboat, or abstract sails, etc... The existing font selection for "Clarksys" has always felt a little off and should be replaced. Custom line art/font for the text is an option.
The winning designer will be hired for ongoing work to develop the style guide, various treatments of the logo, stationary, etc...
Something else to mention, while the relative size of the icon to the text in the logo does not need to match, it should feel balanced. The existing size of the sailboat to the size of the text has never felt right visually when using the logo in real applications.
The tagline should be an optional addition to the logo - the logo should work with or without the tagline present.
