We are a software company (startup) trying to build a global brand. We sell foreign exchange software to Investment Banks around the world. We are called Barracuda and we are an Irish based company. We are looking for business cards with a logo, and we need to do a lot of powerpoints, so a powerpoint template incorporating the logo, together with headed stationary incorporating the logo. We don't yet have a website but if we like what happens from this site, we will create one from here. A barracuda is an aggressive fish, and if possible it would be good to incorporate some sort of aquatic theme into the design.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We sell to the investment banking community typically to the foreign exchange traders and IT staff. We are trying to build the perception that we are a strong brand with a global reputation even though we are a startup from Ireland. We hope the logo's help us to achieve this.
We are looking for business cards incorporating the logo for BarracudaFX.
We are also looking for a powerpoint template that incorporates the logo, so that we can do slideshows with the same theme coming through.
We also need to get headed paper done up incorporating the logo.
The theme needs to be strong, creating belief and presence in the brand name. The powerpoint template needs to be practical allowing for room for txt, diagrams etc without drowning out the template. Suggestions are to maybe use a portion of the slide window for the logo. Not sure, but will leave to your creative juices. See attached file which is what we currently use. As a Barracuda is a fish, it would probably be appropriate to have some sort of aquatic theme, but again I don't wish to steer this in any direction. Because we're selling to Bankers, it needs to be professional, not childish, these guys can be quite conservative, It can't be cheap and it needs to be elegant. The typeface needs to be clear, but it does need to be striking
