Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
SurgiChart is an app for iPhone and iPad that allows surgeons of any type to create electronic case summaries of their surgical procedures. It creates an electronic record of what is traditionally stored in analog. Notes, x-rays, films all consolidated into an e-record that can be shared among doctors.
The name SurgiChart is the most important part of the logo. Less consideration given to an icon. If a blade and pencil abstract can be worked in to word form, then that may give and edge (blade=scalpel and pencil=charting)
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
The current Sc logo has been well received and works well as an icon for our app. We are seeking a new design because the current one resembles the Science Channel logo. Winning logo will work well on the web as well as an icon for an app. Demographics are surgeons and other health care. The newest version of SurgiChart will have an emphasis on sharing the app through a network of colleagues (think facebook for surgeons). An image that conveys a stack of paper or x-rays may be appropriate. Very little print use, so gradients and 3D okay.
