Security Renegade & Security Renegades
I am an information security professional wishing to develop personal (security renegade) and corporate (security renegades) brands. The personal brand will be used for my consulting practice while the corporate brand will be leveraged by any software products I eventually develop.
I would prefer 2 visually related logos (unless you dazzle me). The prize is for both designs as they should work together. I'd like to see the pair submitted as one. I reckon it is best if the same designer creates both at the same time.
The taglines will be:
Security Renegade: Whose rules do you play by?
Security Renegades: Play by your own rules.
Personal branding will likely promote the more unconventional methods (penetration testing, stenography, etc.) of information security, so target audience will likely be very tech savvy ("hackers", system administrators, information security practioners).
Corporate branding will focus more on products for more aggressive businesses, so target audience will likely be those that push the limits of legality (online poker, offshore corporations, adult industry, etc.)
I'm looking for a 2 logos, 1 to represent Security Renegade and another for Security Renegades. The logos will most likely be used as the basis for picking the colour palettes for their respective websites. I like clean aesthetics, simple designs with an edge.
Logo uses will include:
2. Business cards and letterhead
3. Marketing material (brochures, newsletters, clothing apparel, etc.)
1. Logos must be in vector format
2. Avoid gimmicky effects
3. Any use of commercial fonts or artwork should be noted in your comments
Personal preferences (ignore if they hinder a killer design):
1. Both logos should appear related
3. Simple and clean
4. Fewer than 6 colours
5. No gradients
6. Works well on black background
7. Web 2.0 style
8. Very limited stock images or clip art

Useful concepts: devilish, renegade, maverick, rebel, lone wolf, mad scientist, criminal mastermind, small horns, tail
Ideas playing on the idea of rules from the taglines might be interesting...
Personal brand: rulebook or rules on paper going up in flames or similar
Corporate brand: creation of rules, rules written in blood,
Preferred colours: black, white, greys, reds, browns, oranges and possibly yellows --- try to stay away from blues and greens unless you have a killer concept/design
