We are a small information technology consulting firm specializing in structured wiring, server and pc installations, and wired and wireless LAN management for local government and small business clients.
The location of our firm is in the heart of the Fingerlakes region of western New York state. We are located between Canandaigua, Keuka and Seneca Lakes. I would suggest that you take a look at google maps, and do a google image search for "fingerlakes" and see the shape and outlines of these lakes. The shapes of these lakes (especially Keuka Lake) are iconic in this region and may provide a basis for a design.
This area is very rural with lots of farms, rolling hills and of course the finger lakes. This area is also known for its wine and thus has lots of vineyards. Also corn, wheat and soybeans are commonly grown here.
We would like a design that "ties" with the area in which we operate. Often technology firms logos use design elements that focus on the technology and come across and generic and "industrial", we do not want this. We want to merge technology with lakes, farm fields and blue skys.
We own the domain names 3LakesIT.com and ThreeLakesIT.com - the website will be launched after logo design.
