PathScale is a high technology company which builds optimized compilers.
Our clients are typically large universities, government sites and research labs. We need to maintain corporate professionalism, but at the same time add energy to our logo which conveys our drive to deliver excellent high performance compilers.
1) New logo which will look nice on our new website design (link below)
2) Plain black version of logo on white background
3) Plain white version of logo on black background
Bonus points if
4) You provide stationary and business card design
5) Below the logo you put "High Performance Compilers" in a nice readable font
6) It's in vector format
Here's a mock-up products page with just a text logo
For the mock-up you can simply put a black square over the example "PathScale" text logo. In that area put your proposed design.. It can fit in the black bar space or maybe extend just below like this.
The chevrons for the current logo are ugly and designers are cautioned against using them. Color is allowed in the logo, but should match well with the new site design. Be creative.. be crazy.. and help us design a really great logo!
