We are looking for a logo to represent our company - Vertical Applications.
I would like a combination of both an icon and a company name. For example, I like the simplicity of the icon and company name at: http://www.infinitive.com/
I would like a burgundy and light blue icon and/or company name similar to the basketball jersey in the following link (burgundy with light blue edges but would like to see various treatments):
The reason we chose burgundy and light blue is that we feel it'll stand out from our competitors.
Feel free to experiment with the icon in the logo. One idea we had was to use the first word in our company name ("Vertical") signifying that we're moving up or the sky's the limit.
We do not want the logo to look cartoonish. It should be simple, clean, and bold enough to stand out.
This logo (icon and company name) will go on our business cards, marketing collateral, web site, letterhead, apparel, etc so will need to be designed to fit accordingly.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo
