We are looking to having a logo and business card created for our financial analytics company.
The name of the company is: Forcastix
REQUIREMENT: MUST BE AN UN-RASTERIZED FILE! We need to have a dynamically changeable logo and would NOT like to have bitmaps,jpegs,png,gifs etc. Prefer to have work done in Adobe Illustrator (.ai), or Photoshop (.psd) (as long as there is no size constraint)
Our primary focus is to provide intelligent answers and decisions to investors in the stock/mutual funds market. Our company name, Forcastix is primarily focused on our company, "Forecasting" or providing predictive decisions in the investment market for our users.
We would like our logo to focus more on the name, than a particular "image". We would still like to have some type of graphic mixed in.
The typeface or font of the logo should not be a standard font. So, nothing to do with Times New Roman, Comic Sans, etc... basically anything to do with Microsoft Word.
The colors are not too important, as long as they're complimentary. Other consideration in design for the logo is it be easily transferable between mediums. For example, we would like a logo that is designed in such a way that it can be used on pens/clothing/embossed objects (glass doors/granite) and so forth.
This is a more flexible criteria, as long as the basics are provided from the logo criteria stated above. Business card design should not have a "wallpaper" type background. It should not be too busy, we'd prefer if the background was very minimal (we're thinking of selecting paper type instead). However, if the design suits it we're on board!
We would also like samples of cards where the logo is on the back with a smaller logo in the front along with standard contact information.
Notes: We would be potentially interested in working further with the same freelancer to help design a website layout (no coding, just mock-up)
