(Florence) SEO Ring
We are a newly created association that brings together several search engine marketing firms ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search…timization ) located in Florence, Italy.
The aim of the association is mainly educational, as we are bringing together experience and sharing know-how and skills within the association as well as externally by participation in sector seminars and conferences as a united team. Our motto is "strength in unity" - in Italian it is: "l'unione fa la forza".
We are in need of a clean, professional logo that we can use to represent ourselves both on a website (still to be created but the domain is seoring.it - likely to be a separate future contest on here) as well as published material at seminars.
local businesses, both small and large, as well as entrepreneurs and other online marketing people
We'd like a logo that has a clean, enterprise-level look while maintaining a sense of energy. We would like it to represent these ideas:
- "ring" - the association is called a "ring" since it brings together professionals in the same sector where all are at equal standing, regardless of the company represented. We like the idea of incorporating elements in a ring/round table... can tie in with the world of search engines, cogs or spiders often used in this sector.
- "florence" - our activities are closely tied to our location, so we'd like to see the logo either incorporate the word "FLORENCE" (can be smaller size in comparison to "SEO ring") OR the symbol of Florence (red lily on white background - you can see example here: http://www.comune.fi.it - it doesn't need to be detailed, can be a stylized version)
- no preference as to colors but we might specify a color palette later on
- motto doesn't need to be included
- logo must be delivered both in CMYK in .AI format for print use & as layered RGB .PSD format for web use.
- please make sure there is no intellectual property infringement, including in font usage (let us know if we need to buy the font)
We found a contest that has some proposals we like: http://99designs.com/contests/30063
We liked #70 , #168 , #169 and #183 but feel free to offer your take!
Look forward to your entries!
