Our team has written some software that we will be open sourcing and creating a project out of. We need a new logo/font for Reactor8.
Reactor8 - Bringing together developers, operations and best practices
Our project enables developers and operations folks to work together in a frictionless manner to get projects completed and deployed ASAP. We liked the concept of being a nuclear reactor for development teams. Eight has symbolism around new beginnings, we are targeting development teams that are building next generation web applications.
Cuéntanos a qué tipo de público quieres llegar
We are targeting web application developers and IT operation staffs.., so techy gear-head type people. We are also targeting large enterprises so we do not want anything too cheezy/cartoony
We want a modern looking font/icon without being over the top. Projects like this always morph as submissions roll in but initial ideas we are picturing are a font with capital 'R' and the trailing 8:
Possibly with the 8 slanted to give it some motion, and slightly resemble infinity as 8 also symbolises. We also use R8 as an abreviation so we will also use the R and whatever the 8 is together by themselves
For a leading icon initially we are picturing something along the lines of a little nuclear reactor silo cooling tower with some design on it possibly. Some team members also tossed out the idea of atomic symbol/icon
For colors we are not too tied to anything in particular for schemes. First ones thrown out by the team were greys/reds/blacks/oranges/yellow, but again, we are not tied to anything in particular.
