Logo Design Brief

The logo will be the company logo, to appear on business cards, website, report front pages, and most correspondence. The client didn't specify any colors and he preferred a symbol over a logotype. The company sells into large suit and tie companies and requires a certain level of restraint, but the client also wanted to stand out. He also preferred to trend towards the eye catching side of things since it isn't an old established business but still young and dynamic.

Some logo design ideas

Once we gathered the research, we started brainstorming and sketching out ideas. Below you'll see some examples that got worked out in Adobe Illustrator.

Proposal 1

This one and proposal 2 were designed by our trusted design partner Mark Bixby. We love working with Mark because he is 'the bomb'. Unfortunately Mark got an offer he couldn't refuse (and we couldn't top it) so he is now performing his design skills at Facebook. We miss you Mark!
