We are a startup providing cloud software to animation studios. The logo we are looking for refers to our product, Reaper, which helps studios and cut through complexity when rendering animations. No other branding is in place, so there is very little limits on what you might do.
The software allows studios to render on local render farms, 3rd party render farms and cloud systems, managing all of these resources in a manner that is transparent to the artist.
3D Animation Studios, its got to be exciting! Stakeholders include 3D artists themselves, who appreciate a polished look. Also IT staff who manage IT resources for those artists. Our customers are always looking for the latest and greatest tools but are very professional in terms of evaluating that tool.
Sadly, no "Grim Reaper" or skeletons of any kind, we are focusing more on the idea of a farmer reaping.
Stylized scythes welcome!
A focus on the idea of "reaping benefits"
A stylized rendition of "cutting through complexity".
A stylisation of gathering lots of complicated resources into one place.
However, these are only suggestions and we look forward pleasant surprises too!
The logo will be the cornerstone of our website graphics later on.
So, only the grim reaper is a hard and fast requirement. This is the first branding component so you have free reign.
