We like blacks, blues, whites and greys, in part because they do not compete visually with the colors used in the logos of some of our key partners (Red Hat Linux, PHP, Apache Software Foundation, MySQL, Python and Perl...feel free to look at these logos for reference). However, we are open to the use of other colors that do not compete with these logos.
The personality we are trying to convey is extremely professional yet innovative. It is important that this logo convey classiness and trustworthiness.
Please avoid fonts that are "futuristic" as well as overly formal, traditional fonts such as an expensive law firm would use. Sans serif fonts might work best, although we are open to others that are cool yet professional.
The logo should print crisply when only B/W is used. The word LAMP must be capitalized, and the logo should include both the words "Enterprise LAMP." We will need .eps and .psd files as final products.
Finally, please note that we have named our conference "Enterprise LAMP" instead of just "LAMP" to draw attention to the fact that these technologies have matured and become secure enough for very large companies (enterprises) to use them with confidence, whereas they used to be used only by smaller companies that didn't have such stringent requirements. As such, the "Enterprise" part of the logo will indicate something new to senior people in the IT field.
