4/4 - Added Edit: I'd like to note that the extra artwork I made available is in case you were inspired by it. I do not expect them to be used. The only artwork that is required is the icon that is part of the logo itself or the mark if you will.
My husband is appreciating some of the designs that capture a geometric / mathematical approach. I feel like so far we have had a nice blend if ideas that could work for both a staff shirt and a give away for clients.
4/2 - Added Edit: Hi! Just to be clear I don't want the logo to be in your face front and center. I do want the icon to be a part of the design though. Sort of a backhanded marketing for us not an in your face marketing. I hope I am making sense.
Lastly, I didn't realize how much of a cut 99 Designs takes. I will be paying out 200 for the winner and had planned on likely paying out something for every design I liked that I might want to use at a later time. Amount and quantity are unknown at this point. Sorry to not have more specifics. I want to see how many I really like before I can say that.
If you would prefer ai files I have those available, the website wouldn't allow me to load them.
I sadly don't haven anything terribly concrete in my mind, but I can give you an idea of the feeling I wish to create. I would like something that is appealing enough to be willing to wear while out and about running errands. I don't wish to have an in your face marketing, but something that is still a reference to us. We are an I.T. company facilitating both business and consumer support. We have been honored with business of the year more than once. Our tag line is "your partner in IT" the long version is "Not just your provider, your partner in IT". The only creative idea I have had is "My Geeks of Choice" then referencing the website, but I'm not in love with that idea. I attached some extra artwork, not because I expect it to be used, but if you wanted to I have it and it's part of what is on our website. We have a new website in development http://interpretingtech.steam-hosting.net/ This may be launching fairly soon so if the sandbox is no longer up when you see it the url will be http://www.interpretingtech.com The colorful, we call it aurora image, is what is used on the mousepads and also one slide of the website.
My personal favorite T-shirt style is more retro in nature, but that doesn't mean that is what we should use. I really do wish to be open to ideas.
With our company we are not salespeople we genially try to make the best recommendation given the client's need. We have a bit of a cult following in our area. We were recycling e-waste long before it was cool or mandatory, doing so at no cost to customers and paying for it ourselves. We have recycled over 50 tons in the past many years. Since the new laws have been passed we no longer have weight measurements to provide. We are really serious about our environmental footprint considering how wasteful our industry is as a whole. We aim for an exceptional client experience.
