We're a bookkeeping company based in the Silicon Valley. We do bookkeeping for IT consultants, contractors, small businesses, and startups.
Small business owners and consultants. Business people that want to save time by outsourcing their accounting and bookkeeping. The logo should inspire trust and confidence.
Some logo elements:
Possibly looking for a book or open book in the logo.
Possibly also a black city skyline (depicted by single line) preferably SF either on the page or around the book.
Possibly a magnifying glass (the client is not a fan of the magnifying glass but see what you can come up with)
Possibly related to urban legends/myths in the graphic.
All possibilities are not requirements, just thoughts. Original ideas are welcome!
Ideally only 3 or less visual elements total, we don't want the logo to be too busy or unnecessarily complicated.
Colors: Any combination of Black, Dark Brown, Gold, White. Going for a Sepia Photo finish feel. An added splash/slash of color to bring it up to date.
Text should be warm and antique but with modern and clean text like Arial or Helvetica.
The winning logo design will:
- scale well to different sizes
- work in both color and black and white/grayscale
- adapt well to different platforms such as blog header, Twitter/Facebook profile, ebook/whitepaper covers
- not include any elements such as commercial fonts or imagery that will cost additional money
The winning logo must be available as a layered Adobe Illustrator file.
