Required text for the logo:
"CRB" should be in a larger font and the most prominent part of the logo. "Equity Indexes" does not necessarily have to be capitalized. This is up to the designer. The phrases "Thomson Reuters/Jefferies", "In-the-Ground" and "Equity Indexes" should be the same font size and smaller/less prominent than "CRB".
It would be nice to have a graphic of some sort. It could represent commodities (energy, agriculture, metals) or be completely abstract.
See example of an abstract graphic here (top left corner):
This is one of our existing logos.
Possible color schemes: Orange, dark blue, dark green. Other alternative are accepted.
Fonts: Nothing "cartoonish". Keep it simple and professional.
We are looking for a simple, clean, conservative, polished design. A metallic or glossy look would be nice.
