The company will be founded in the IT-sector and will mainly focus development , training and consultance. The development will be java, java-ee, java-web, mobile, etc. The consultance will be about software-development (best practices, processes, tools, etc). We are not focused to austria.
No specific target. The logo should be timeless, not too kittenish. We try to address companies, who want well-designed and high-quality-software or services, which means we do not want to be the cheapest and deliver pre-alpha-buggy-prototype-code... We know about project-management and software-development and we want to deliver clear, secure and well functioning software without using the customer as a beta-tester and without having the customer unluky or having endless calls or communications.
We want to have a logo and a favicon. The logo in a high resolution (transparent background and white background) that it can be used for printouts, papers, etc and in a lower resolution optimized for web (also transparent background and white background). Every image must not have a watermark. If you use a special font, we must know the name of the font, if you will be picked as a winner.
We don't want cartoons, clip-arts and 3D. The typing should not be kittensih, but clear and rememberable, effective and professional!
The files should be layered psd's or gimp's and we want the originals.
As an addition - and here you are completely free - the logo should have an "open architecture", that it can be reused for different projects we make. This reusing means, that the logo should always be the same, but somewhere on the logo there should then be a small addition concerning the specific project. An example for this is google. They have the google-logo and then small "sublogos" for google code, google maps, etc.
Try to play with "mobile", "doX", "vBoxAdmin" as sublogo-words.
