We need a simple and clean logo. Look our existing marketing material at http://preview.avecpc.com/promotions/ to get an idea of how this logo will be used.
As for the logo itself - it can be simple typeface, or you can incorporate some imagery, perhaps a lock for security, some ones and zeros, file folders, cloud backup, whatever. Be creative - nothing is forbidden. We'll pick whatever looks best and fits inline with our existing online persona.
We must receive the logo in .AI format - it must be vector
This is also a private contest - we've had issue in the past with folks posting their work for us in places like flickr. Please do not do it. Not only will we not use your submission, but we'll have to ask you to take it down.
Please respond with any questions, we're new to this contest business, so we've probably left out quite a bit of necessary information.
Attached you'll find our existing logo in .AI.
