I have created several logos that we have used since we started our company, but we are looking to begin the process of finalizing our brand identity. While we have some ideas about what we are looking for, we have not chosen a color palette, logo, etc. Our company is small enough now that we can launch an entire new image without hurting our brand recognition thus far. The name of the company is "M Ride" which was chosen to be able to use the "M" as the recognizable feature in any branding. As we grow, we would like our custom "M" to be recognizable on it's own without needing any context of taglines.
The actual name of the company can be a little confusing, so we would like the "M" to be able to stand out on it's own with "ride" possibly incorporated into the logo.
Styles that we like include a vintage car look, or a comic book/pop art look. We have been playing around with the idea of incorporating one or more lightning bolts in the logo, either as part of the "M" or included elsewhere. The reason we are running a contest on 99 Designs is to get some fresh ideas. Logos with lightning bolts or any new, fresh ideas will be welcomed. Including a bus, wheel, etc. or any other transportation type icons could also work.
We are looking for some creative, modern logo designs that would work for modern transportation company and convey a fun, yet professional feel. We are open to any types of logos and color palettes.
I have included a image containing some current logos, lightning bolt logos that we have been working on as well as a few inspirational pictures. Feel free to use these as inspiration or offer any other creative ideas that come to mind...
