I am looking for a logo for a website / company / business that I am creating. I am very passionate about solar energy, and I want to create a website to inform the public about solar energy... how it works, how people can go solar, and what the hottest news, trends and deals are in the solar energy industry. I am an aspiring entrepreneur, so I want the perfect logo that will represent the Solify brand.
This will be a resource and online community for consumers, solar energy professionals, and people wanting to learn about solar. I may sell solar products through the website with e-commerce. I will be blogging about solar energy and providing discussion forums, and other sources of information for the consumer. Product solar energy product reviews will be available for curious consumers.
I have some ideas for the logo, but I welcome your professional opinion and creativity as a designer. My initial idea is the name "Solify" in stylized font. I was thinking of sky-blue font with the "o" in "Solify" being a sun or being yellow to represent a sun. Other possible colors could include green, orangish-yellow, black, etc. Maybe there could be a nicely-designed sun image next to the word Solify instead of as the O... use your imagination :-)
I want the logo to be modern and edgy, but not too busy... a somewhat conservative look, without being too boring. The logo will be for a modern, green, Web 2.0 site.
Ultimately, if you have ideas, I want you to test them out and show me. I do not strict requirements, just initial concepts.
I have attached an image that gives a very basic initial idea for the logo, but feel free to come up with your own starting point for a design.
