How Les Hazlewood started their logo design journey

Company name

Apache Shiro

Overview

The contest holder will be donating the winning design to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) for their project, Apache Shiro (http://incubator.apache.org/shiro). The ASF is not sponsoring or in any way affiliated with the contest.

Apache Shiro is a project under Apache’s Incubator program. Apache Shiro is a security framework to help software developers build secure applications quickly and easily.

Some common themes that might be appropriate: guard, armor, shield, defense, rampart, lock & key, castle ('shiro' means 'castle' in Japanese, but it is not required to have a literal translation in the logo). The goal is to have a logo that represents 'security', 'protection', 'safety' and similar themes. Have fun! :)

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is a non-profit organization that works with volunteers to collaboratively develop free open source software, including the widely-used Apache Tomcat server project. For the last ten years, Apache has been a major revolutionary force in the software industry. To learn more about the ASF, visit http://www.apache.org

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our target audience is software developers building secure applications for large and small companies either as employees or as contractors. The core of this audience are highly skilled lead engineers. These engineers will be building mission critical applications using the Apache Shiro framework in order to make their applications secure.

The target audience will care about the quality and reliability of the product.

Requirements

The logo will be donated to Apache with the purpose of using it on the Apache Shiro project website. The URL is http://incubator.apache.org/shiro.

Here's what we'd like:
1. Professional looking. We want developers and businesses to be feel comfortable relying on Shiro
2. A unique icon that can stand on its own (see examples below).
3. The typeface should be easily readable.
4. Text must have two variations: "Apache Shiro" and "Shiro". Either one could be used.

What we don't want :
1. No logos that are too playful. (ie - bubble letters)
2. No clip art or stock photography

Example of some decent open source logos:
Spring Source: http://www.springsource.org
Alfresco: http://www.alfresco.com
RedHat: http://www.redhat.com
Drupal - http://www.drupal.org

Thank you all in advance for your submissions! We look forward to seeing your great work!
