We are looking for a logo and typeface to be featured prominently on all company material.
The logo and company name should be placed next to each other, so that we might use them separately if needed. Note that because of this, the name cannot be part of the logo itself.
We discussed what logos we prefer. Software is obviously hard to visualize, so the best bet might be an artistic geometric shape - placed next to an aesthetically pleasing rendition of our name, substans.
We like the following logos:
Zune logo: http://www.zune.net
Windows logo: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/…_v_web.jpg
The whole thing should not feel "generic" so you are welcome to be creative when creating the logo!
Please keep in mind that the result should render reasonably well in grayscale and small sizes.
The typeface should stand out and be clear as well as easily readable.
Using colors to create a fresh impression would definitely be a plus!
We would like the final product in the following formats:
1) 24-bit PNG in a high resolution
2) A common vector format - EPS or whichever suits you.
