We are a VAR (Value Added Reseller) of IT network management products mainly aimed at users of Cisco networks. As well as selling products, we also offer technical support services and consultancy so we present ourselves as trusted professionals who can handle the type of problems that most organisations don't have the in-house experience to manage.
Our target audience would typically be technically adept network engineers (the users) and their managers who will ultimately purchase our products (the buyers). In certain cases we will be dealing with CIO (Chief Information Officer) or IT Director level people but this will be less common.
Symbiote - [sim-bee-oht] – a close ecological relationship between individuals of two (or more) species that benefits both organisms.
We specifically chose the name Symbiote because of its significance in the natural world where many organisms choose to work together for mutual gain (the shark and the pilot fish, the zebra and the oxpecker bird etc, etc. For more detail on symbiosis in nature, see http://necsi.org/projects/evolution…iosis.html
We want to project the image that we work together with our customers to help maintain the 'health' of their IT networks.
We would like the logo to incorporate the full company name (Symbiote Networks) but to be simple and professional looking.
No cartoons or caricatures and please don't use any stock images or photo's.
We will need the images for the website, stationary, marketing material (both electronic and paper based) and ultimately to be used on corporate goodies such as pens, memory sticks etc so please provide whatever formats are most suitable.
Once the logo has been chosen we will most probably retain the same designer to create templates for stationary, business cards etc,
