What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

Dawn Machine

What is your industry?

Entertainment and Sports

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

Power, boldness, forward-thinking

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

Image + text

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

The logo should be: bold, powerful, firm, awe-inspiring, clean, simple, stark, imposing, showcasing a robot's face, just from the shoulders or chest up, inspired by the style of a soviet constructivist propaganda poster (inspired by, so please keep it subtle, no Russian fonts etc). The robot should have a dated look, like the Iron Giant or something from the 1950s. The entire logo should suggest that "Dawn Machine" is the way forward; the company that will lead you into the future.

Here are some examples (just to clarify) of the soviet constructivist look I'm going for in regards to style (particularly that of the robot design).

1) http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/Lenin%20pos...
2) http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a366/manudevi...

#1 perfectly encapsulates what I'm looking for: love the simple design using only a few colors, and how Lenin is looking to the future. #2 is great too, especially in terms of the simplified lines, and two-tone color scheme.

In both examples please note how the artist depicts Lenin (using lighting, facial orientation, and style), to suggest that he is a bold, and powerful leader.

And since I've gotten some robot queries - here's an example of a good jumping off point in terms of robot look:


The robot should have a slightly dated look, feel humanoid, maybe throw in some steam-punk influence, but I wouldn't get too complex with it. I want something that is recognizable in silhouette.

Hey everyone! Changing the end date, because I haven't been able to give this project as much attention these last few days as I would've liked. Thanks for understanding!
