We are a startup company specialising in highly visual data analysis. The tools we create are web based and are aimed to bring easy analysis to companies looking for either standalone systems or integration into their own software.
We are a small team of talented programmers, committed to open source software using open standards.
We are looking for an eye catching design that will attract systems integrators and Business Intelligence professionals.
We are offering both a fully standalone product (which would attract the BI guys) and server side product that would attract systems integrators. The user interface is designed to enable end users an easy, usable, and functional, but very advanced data analytics.
The server speaks in various languages to client applications (different communication protocols) allowing UI designers to write functional ui's in a large selection of different programming languages.
We're basically looking for guys who are interested in data, large amounts of it, and people who want to visualise and manipulate the data in a web environment.
We are looking for a logo to represent our data analysis application - Saiku, which we often refer to as "the future of open source advanced analytics".
Saiku is a name for a Japanese knife, in data analysis changing the data on screen is commonly referred to as slicing and dicing the data, hence the knife name.
The type face should be bold and clear, and the graphics should visually depict an aspect of data analysis.
Attached is a current iteration of our ui to give you an idea of what the finished design will look like.
The files we require will be for Websites and print material, jpeg, png and layered PSD.
