Apteno is short for Aptenodyte which is the largest species of penguin. This name reflects our open source ties our company has. We specialize in custom web-based applications and content management (specifically solutions based on AptitudeCMS, http://www.apteno.net/AptitudeCMS/trac/).
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This is pretty much your run-of-the-mill 99design logo contest. Winning design will be used on the web, in print and at conferences so the graphic portion of the winning logo must be the empahsis and it must convey something relatively simple yet powerful enough to represent our aspirations.
- Emphasis must be given on the graphic, not just doctoring up the text.
- Must be delivered as vector format (PSD or open source format)
- Anything looking like your typical "linux" penguin nor a design too much resembling any linux distro (or any company for that matter).
- 3D is ok but don't overdue it.
