Looking for a versatile logo with a typeface and (probably) an icon or integrated graphic. This will ultimately be used for letterhead, business cards, printed reports, electronic deliverables, and a web site. We'll be looking to contract out that design work if we're happy with the results.
We'll probably need a couple of different orientations for use in different spots. (i.e. a horizontal layout, and a roughly square layout)
We're *not* looking for a security/hacker theme (i.e. no padlock / key / safe / different colored hats / Angelina Jolie in rollerblades / etc.)
We'll basically be happy with a random abstract geometric shape, apropos of nothing in particular. Anything vaguely looking like it's somehow related to geometry will probably work fine with the "Azimuth" theme.
So, clean, simple, modern. Nothing too elaborate or loud color-wise, nothing cartoony. Original work please - no stock images / clip art.
We don't really know what we're doing, but gradients, greys, different blues all sound ok. (Unless this is rubbish. You're the designers - you tell us. )
Speaking of things that are rubbish, attached is something I threw together in 5 seconds with a public domain image.
We'll want both high-quality vector-based graphics files suitable for being professionally printed, and lower-dpi files suitable for web / .docs.
