Create me a logo that is more than just stylized text and less than hairy 3d rendering of an electric grid. Something simple. Something sharp. Something that looks great digitally but also prints well on cards, banners, tshirts, stickers, etc. Colors should not be too loud but don't have to be black and white either. We're selling to corporate clients but we're a young company in a hot emerging market, not IBM.
Would like to incorporate the concept of the electric grid in the logo somehow to tie-in with the name itself (cloudtric is a combination of cloud and electric). Some examples (not the only ones, certainly) are an electric outlet, power switch, etc.
Look at what some other players in the cloud space have done with their logos to get an idea of the limits of where we can take the design. Notice they are all sharp, clean logos that would be very appropriate when selling to a corporate client.
or really any of the sponsors on this list: http://cloudcomputingexpo.com/gener…rs0410.htm
Note: As for upper case, lower case, etc- I'm not sold one way or another. I'll let the designer help guide my decision on whether it should be cloudtric, CLOUDTRIC, CloudTric, Cloudtric, ClOuDtRiC or something else entirely :)
