Sourcing For Services, Inc. http://www.sourcingforservices.com Will consider using "SFS"
Sourcing For Services, Inc is a services procurement outsource provider. It is kind of like a call center handling customer service calls or sales calls, but instead we handle sourcing requests for professional services (ie IT and Management Consultants, HR outsourcing, Legal, CPAs, etc). Sourcing projects take several weeks to develop and roll out. Building trust with our clients is very important. We also offer our clients cost savings for the sourcing effort as well as savings for the service being requested.
The tag line I like/want to use if possible is "Strategic sourcing for professional services" - please incorporate if/where appropriate.
We have two general audiences: first, any business owner or exec of mid-size company that has a need to hire a service provider (ie consultant) and thinks it will cost $25k-50k or more; second, larger corporations who spend a lot on services/consulting and have a high transactional volume of sourcing needs. The first is probably not very well versed in procurement, but the second is very well versed in procurement terms and practices.
SFS is the only firm (we know of) providing only 'services' procurement - our competitors provide full line of procurement services. So we are a niche player and seek marketing position as such.
We are looking for a logo that will be used in the following uses:
-business cards, website, invoices, letter head
Hoping that designer of winning logo will help with more look and feel on web site (beyond this logo design).
- Please submit in vector/Adobe format
- will consider one or two versions for logo:
1. using full name of "Sourcing For Services" or
2. using acronym "SFS"
-Please consider including our tag line if possible "Strategic sourcing for professional services"
-simple is fine
-The lettering can be layered
-Letters don't necessarily have to be capitalized
-Ok to use 2-3 colors, but want it to go well against white background

-Like idea of using people (figures), business setting, or corporate imaging in logo, but that is just an initial thought
-Open to all designs, but it needs to look and feel professional
-Illustration ok, as long as professional and or clean looking - don't want cartoons or caracatures.
