WHAT DO YOU DO?
Small, nascent software consultancy.
WHAT IS YOUR INDUSTRY?
Software and technical consulting.
DESCRIBE YOUR AUDIENCE
Technically-minded customers who understand the value of good software and smart web design are our main audience. We also want to attract other people interested in technology in general.
WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO COMMUNICATE TO YOUR AUDIENCE?
We'd like to suggest that we're a premium, talented consultancy with technical specializations that few others offer.
Style and Concept
WHAT STYLES DO YOU LIKE?
We're a fan of the elegance of SimpleBits (http://simplebits.com), the geekery of StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com), and the generic unfathomable "this looks technical-ish, right?" aura of 37signals (http://37signals.com).
We'd like a clean, crisp, geometric look. A good benchmark: if it can be drawn on a whiteboard with good accuracy in 60 seconds or less, it's probably simple enough. If it's complex enough that it takes longer than that, it may not be what we're looking for. But we're open to any ideas that you might have.
WHAT COLORS DO YOU LIKE OR HATE?
[[ See below for requirements and specifications. ]]
ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL INFO? (OPTIONAL)
--- [[ What we need ]] ---
The full logo should have a text portion that is our corporate name ("BitsBuilder") and a separate graphical element. You can have additional text elements, but there can be a maximum of one graphical element.
The graphical element should appear to the left of the text portion containing our name.
We're looking for a single logo as described above with four variants:
1.) suitable for white background
2.) suitable for dark or black background
3.) monochrome logo (we use this for printing t-shirts and the like)
4.) monochrome logo, but with the graphical element on top instead of to the side
In the final proof, we'll want all four of these, but you only need to submit one of the above for purposes of winning the CrowdSPRING award. (Of course, more are encouraged and will help us give better feedback!)
If you submit multiple variants of a single logo concept as described above, put them in one entry.
If you submit multiple logo concepts, use a separate entry for each one.
--- [[ Constraints ]] ---
We need our logo to conform to a few constraints for various technical reasons.
* Solid colors only; no gradients. We have a good chunk of printed material, and gradients tend not to print well if our clients reprint our material.
* Try to minimize number of different colors in the graphical element. (Many colors makes it expensive for us to print large quantities of things because our local printer has to switch to a different, more expensive printing process when there are more colors or if we need full color.)
* No stylized text on our corporate name. The letters in "BitsBuilder" must be unaltered from the shapes you'd get from whatever font you use.
