Starting from our logo we need a consistent series of 8 cover designs including icons to represent our collaboration solutions. You are free to reuse the elements (shape) of our logo.
We want to use this covers for web cover flows, web pages, PowerPoint title slides and a banner. The covers should vary in color schemes to represent the various solution contexts.
The icons should represent the output of the collaboration processes and be reused within the covers, but also stand for themselves for other usages.
Please see our comments below.
