linguist or lingui.st
We are a small company based in Austria and doing software development to earn our bread and butter. Mostly we are building web apps with Ruby on Rails.
The target audience of the product are clearly developers/small startups and translators.
Our product is called linguist and the web url is lingui.st.
We want the logo to be a little provocative, but yet with some kind of class (quality). In our brainstorming we were thinking to incorporate a tongue (la lengua). Please don't consider the tongue a must, it is just a thought, but we are open to other proposals as well.
Cartoon is maybe ok, but we don't want to be too much playful and childish, so I guess it is hard to use something that we like.
The product will be mainly used by developers and translators. Especially in the beginning we are focusing the Rails market.
Please consider this guidelines, feel free to experiment with colors and motives, since we have no design yet.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo
