We are a two-person technology consulting startup, expecting to grow rapidly. The name NetBrains is intentionally vague, not limiting us to any specific part of the technology world. That being said, we are experienced software engineers, so that's likely where we'll start.
We also have our own products and services that we'd like to develop, so the name works for a company that's not strictly in the consulting business, but also a product/service provider. The logo should do the same.
Our image should be that of a young tech-savvy, new-age ("web 2.0") company.
Small and medium sized business who need technology consulting services, and specifically, custom software development. Most of our customers will be looking to have a custom web-based application developed either for their in-house use, or in a lot of cases, as a public facing application.
We do not do simple "websites". When it comes to our software development practice, we focus on web-based *applications*. For example, we could develop the online bill pay service for a bank, or the self service portal for an insurance company.
We are looking for a logo to represent our company.
The logo does not have to have a "brain" in it, but it could, as long as it was done tastefully and without coming across like we're a medical practice (or zombies). We suggest a brain that is not anatomically correct.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .png, .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
