Nonprofit R+D is a consulting firm dedicated to helping emerging nonprofits fully utilize technology and the Internet to support their missions through training, education about best practices, and consulting services.
Small to mid-size nonprofit organizations that need assistance with technology so they can better meet their missions. Our services include everything from training and education about best practices to building websites, email marketing, online fundraising, etc.
The individuals we will be working with will not be very tech savvy, so we want a logo that is inviting and not intimidating.
We are looking for a clean modern design that highlights technology but not in a cold "techie" manner. Since we work with nonprofit organizations, we would like to see some designs that can give the impression of serving an organization's mission or working for people.
The R+D is short for "research and development," as we will be doing extensive research and testing of fundraising campaigns, email campaigns, etc. and using that data to inform our clients about best practices and new ideas to further their missions through technology.
At this point we are open to color suggestions and will wait to see how the first batches come out, but probably partial to Blue's to highlight trustworthiness. If you have other ideas we would love to see them!

We need a logo that works online as well as in print so will need it in both file formats (Print file format - .ai (CMYK) and Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB).
We'll use the following rating system, which we have copied from another contest:
1 star - Wrong direction, start over
2 star - Some elements we like
3 star - Getting closer but need revisions or a different take on your design
4 star - Design is being considered
5 star - Made the final cut
Please also refer to general comments for further guidance during the contest.
