We're looking for a logo that has a corporate feel, but isn't too stuffy or conservative. However, we also don't want anything cartoony or trendy so the logo is still a strong logo 10 years from now.
We have a rough idea on the look & feel of the logo, but are definitely open to any new ideas and suggestions.
We're looking for a horizontal logo with roughly the ratio of 1x2.5 heightxwidth. You can see why we picked this ratio and see examples here if you'd like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ0W-_9gTH8
Here is a very rough & simple idea for the example logo:
We had planned to use something similar to this logo and then have a screened back watermark image of an abstract shape that implies dynamic and powerful motion.
However, you DO NOT have to use this concept and can present something else if you've got a good idea. We're open to your suggestions and creativity.
