Refer to http://ArtOfBabel.com for site layout and overall color scheme.
I need a logo to replace the one that's there now and a favicon. The logo must be contemporary yet remain readable - the name 'Art Of Babel' must be present in/on/around/near the main logo and must be readable.
I am open to suggestions about the site's color scheme.
The logo must reflect the 'babel' aspect of the name. Babel in this sense conveys communications, a connected and smarter way of getting things done. Communicating with trading partners, other businesses, using state of the art systems integration approaches.
I am open to using human or human-like figures in/on/near/around the logo. Hand(s), finger(s) etc are ok too. These are not required, but feel free to incorporate them if you like.
The logo may be used in print, and on a business card, so the color scheme should lend itself to simplification, or conversion to black, gray, and white.
The favicon can be inspired by the logo so it does not need to contain the same elements - it just needs to capture the essence of the main logo. The size of the favicon can be either 16x16 or 32x32 pixels (source file does not have to match this size, but the image must be clear at these sizes).
