Want a logo with mystique and drama and style.
Please minimize death/violence/evil imagery (i.e., don't want to scare prospective employees, customers, and partners with visuals of death or violence or evil or blood.) Suggest focusing instead on imagery of bonfire, ritual community, chanting/dancing, ancient maya/aztec/egyptian civilization. Looking for imagery that is mysteriously seductive, not scary or repulsive. Perhaps our logo is a powerful ancient artifact that can save the world.
At least one manifestation of the logo should be visually simple enough that it still looks good and remains legible and self explanatory when shrunk to, say, roughly, 200 x 75 pixels. Too much ornamentation compromises this.
Deliver as .jpg and layered .psd, RGB. Clear background.
