We are looking for a logo that tells a bit about what we do and who we are. What we do is economic and financial consulting and who were are is people committed to sustainable communities. Sustainable in our profession means communities with a full range of household incomes, transit options, and services. To that end the logo should convey the notion of promoting density and transit, perhaps.
We think the logo should be simple and pretty graphic (not a lot of text, and not necessarily our name or acronym). The logo will be featured on our webpage, on our business cards, and on our stationery. To that end one version or several versions of the logo would be fine.
Here's are examples of logos we like: http://www.strategiceconomics.com
And here are ones we're not too fond of: http://www.epsys.com/
This one's not too bad: http://www.keysermarston.com
We have another idea now that we've gotten some entries. Mondrian in his painting Broadway Boogie Woogie depicted a sense of urbanism as he saw it in new york. Is it possible to incorporate that with the sense in some of the ideas of measurement, such as the horizontal and vertical arrows or lines? That would put Mondrian's grid on a graph or axes. Might work, we'd be interested to see it.
