What is the exact name you would like in your logo?
Codetrails - (Note: Codetrails is one word; a line break between code and trails is fine as are different colors for the two components of the name, but a hyphen between them is off-limits)
What is your industry?
What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?
* We work with (analyze/read) code. Lots of code. This is seriously Big (Software Engineering) Data.
* We show software developers the trails left in the code by other, experienced developers and help them follow the experts when writing their own code.
* We are dealing with both people and code. Both are equally important.
What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
Image and text, maybe both could stand together or indepently.
Side note: It should be possible to create a low resolution icon from (parts of) the logo (16x16px, and 32x32). These low resolution icons will be used in the software in menus, toolbars, etc.
Do you have any other info or links you want to share?
--- About Codetrails ---
Codetrails develops tools for software developers that guide them in how to use unfamiliar or novel software libraries they havent used before. These tools protect them from making (programming) mistakes and help them to produce higher quality software in less time.
The interesting part about the tools is how Codetrails obtains all the knowledge to support developers on their day to day work. We analyze gigabytes of source code to learn how other developers have used a particular software library before. We then extract this knowledge (the trails developer have left in their code) by applying machine learning techniques to the source code. The extracted knowledge is then reintegrated into the developers integrated development environment (IDE) in the form of recommendations and documentation.
--- The target audience for your logo ---
Although software developers are our main users, they may not be the only target audience for the logo. To get tools into the market we have to speak to team leads, CTOs, and CFOs that may not be very familiar with the nitty-gritty of software development. Staying too close to pure software development may thus be limiting.
--- Little more Background Information ---
Codetrails is a university spin-off that brings Web 2.0 ideas to software development tools. The project has an Open Source project called Eclipse Code Recommenders hosted by the Eclipse Foundation .
A mission statement of the project can be found here .\n
The Recommenders project uses Odins ravens Hugin and Munin (which translates to thought and mind in English) in its logo. An more detailed explanation about the logo can be found in . Having (two) birds (or other bird-like attributes) integrated into the logo might thus be nice, but is not a must.
