I am a software and consulting firm with a name based on a local landmark the "Seven Bends of the Shenandoah" which is a snake like part of the Shenandoah that has 5 major bends making the river fold like an accordian into a small space.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Customers are usually "medical" type people who are looking for IT consulting and software advice. I do consulting mainly for a large organization and smaller offices associated with them.
I would like to have a logo that will be a unifying design for all my communications. I would like to have the words "Seven Bends" as the most prominent feature and the snake like river in some part of the logo although it can be very abstract.
Picture of the Seven Bends is here if it helps: http://www.simply-shenandoah.com/woodstock.htm
I am looking more for the feeling then the reproduction of the landmark.
