We want our logo to be clean, striking, and "techie".
1. We do like a two-toned logo (as it is now) with something special about the "x" - feel free to be creative
2. We want to keep the N capitalized
3. No icons in our logo - just the name, although we are interested in something that can be used as a favicon
4. Typeface should be sans serif type that is clean and not crazy. We do not want a console type font when we say "techie" - we just want to convey that we are a technology company.
We are open to different color combinations but generally prefer to stay away from yellows, oranges, and greens. Again, we want something that says "cutting-edge" without alienating the corporate feel.
Our current site, which we are redesigning, is at http://www.nexops.com.
We have attached an old iteration of the logo as well to give you an idea.
