The application can be found at http://www.pypelyne.com
(Click "Try the Live Demo")
I am deeply invested in the orange/yellow/gray color scheme that you see in the website and the application. The black is negotiable I think.
I really can't change the look and feel of the application itself so the logo has to work with that gray / silvery theme with light gray or very dark gray accents.
I don't want cartoon or clip art.
I want to communicate an idea of slickness, organization, order, and "flow".
The product is to manage roadmaps and pipelines. Would love see how you'd communicate that via a graphic if possible at all. Abstractions would be fine.
I'm trying to be like Mint (http://www.mint.com) for product managers.
Nothing ornate or baroque please. I want to use this on the website and business cards.
