We are launching 2 websites that work together and are part of the same parent company. ResearchOasis.com and WritingOasis.com. ResearchOasis.com will be a site that connects scientists and research groups with private sector investors/companies. WritingOasis.com will be a site that connects scientists/researchers with professional science writers who can help them with potential publications, grant applications, and other misc writing tasks. The logos must be sharp, sophisticated, but iconic and simple.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The WritingOasis logo and the ResearchOasis logo should bothincorporate an icon of an oasis - see URLs in the WANTS section. Andthen the Writing logo will have an icon/graphic that suggests "writing"- this could be a stylized pen or some other "writing icon" including apiece of parchment. The Research logo will have the "oasis" icon andthen some type of icon that suggests "technology/research." Ideallythe technology/research icon should suggest a combination of"computers, technology, medicine". So whatever creative icon strikesyou, please incorporate with the "oasis" icon and then we'll have theperfect logo. Thesesites are primarily going to be used by scientists in academia, otherhigh profile research teams, private sector investors, technologycompanies, and writing professionals. This project is to develop both logos although again,they should share a common look/feel (maybe this happens with the"oasis icon" that both logos should contain) people should be able to tellthat these sites/brands are sisters/related. This being said, the two logos should not beidentical.
- More serious colors suggesting substantial, safe, professional- Logos should be able to stand without the .com if necessary
- For the icon for the WritingOasis.com logo, we were thinking a stylized pen or paper/parchment
- For the icon for the ResearchOasis.com logo, we want a clean icon that suggests computers, research, technology
- Both logos can incorporate the "oasis" iconography - thinkhttp://thecontaminated.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/ubari-oasis.jpg(top image) orhttp://7art-screensavers.com/screens/3d-oasis/oasis-3d-paradise-beach-palms.jpg
- Text should appear next to icon - not on top oficon/graphic. the text should be "Writing Oasis" and "Research Oasis"(without the quotes of course) -- probably the fonts for both logosshould be the same
- Need vector file format with fonts (would like illustrator file
- Looking for logo that would work against both light and dark background
- Logo will primarily appear on website and business literature (stationary, and maybe ads)
- We don't want anything too detailed or elaborate
- We don't want bright colors
