We love our old logo. So we are only looking to alter that logo with some changes:
1) We'd like a new color scheme for the logo. Right now, we are thinking of having a textured gray background, with a white logo on top of it. The textured gray will be an important part of the logo, and we're leaning toward something more industrial, like weathered steel, for instance, but we are completely open to ideas, since you're the designer.
Please note, the textured gray does not need to be in the Illustrator file you provide, but we'd like it as a PSD/PNG file, so we can add it as a background image on our website.
2) We plan to remote the the diamond symbol on the left of the old logo. As of now, we're thinking that we don't want/need a new symbol to replace this. We are certainly open to ideas though if you'd like to design a new symbol for us to use.
3) As noted in the design brief, we want the new logo to read "FantasyData API Solutions"
4) We like the existing fonts used in the logo, but we are absolutely open to new ideas and fresher fonts.
We have included our original logo, and a very basic altered logo for what we are aiming for. Of course, as the designer, feel free to submit an alternative design, as long as it's representative of an established, stable, trustworthy business-to-business company.
We require an Illustrator file and a PSD/PNG of the background tile.
