LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
The SBDCNet is National Information Clearinghouse for the Small Business Administration's Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network. Our website, http://sbdcnet.org, is the national website for the program.
The SBDC network provides no-cost business counseling and research to US entrepreneurs looking to start or expand a business.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need two logos. One for our New Tech Forward Online Magazine and a second that will be an alternate version of our original logo to bridge our main logo with the your newly-designed Tech Forward logo. The logos also need to look good in print because we will likely do a print version of the magazine as well
I am afraid to go into too much detail because I do not want to stifle your creativity we know what that the creatives on this site are amazing and please dont be afraid of using your imagination and developing a logo that you think says "Tech Forward" in the most creative way possible.
But for those of you that need to know exactly what the client is looking for here is a good place to start:
For the first logo, it should be more image based implying forward movement left to right, You can use arrows, people, the words "tech forward" or any image that you feel implies technology as longs as it has a sense of movement. you can use a combination I think the words "Tech Forward" with two arrows that crisscross between the word would work.
The second logo should include the main image of the first logo and the words SBDCNet Tech Forward all need to be included. The word magazine is optional but would be nice if it could be included as well. Our primary color, Pantone 5483 C, must be the primary color of this logo though it may use other colors as well. This logo should be more of a bridge between our original logo (located in the left side of the header of our site( www.sbdcnet.org) and the new tech forward logo you design they should be able to look at it and immediately recognize that is a SBDCNet product.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Highly-experienced business counselors that help the public and better their communities. We need to build a sense of connectivity between the hundreds of offices and thousands of counselors across the country.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Clean designs, we like senses of depth through any means possible, reflections, transparency, gradients.
Futura is our official font but submissions dont have to use it for logo one, but is recommended for logo two.
Our program color is a green/blue derivative and needs to incorporated in the design of both logos. Here are the exact numbers to duplicate it in RGB, Hex, Pantone and CMYK.
R: 99 G:142 B: 158
Pantone: 5483 C
C: 69% M:31% Y:36% K:2%
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
SBDCNet must always have first five letters capitalized with first four bolded and the last two letters small case,
