Vitesse / Vitesse Digital
We're a 1 year old startup, which have recently changed our name to "Vitesse", meaning "speed" in French.
We focus on selling software development services, as well as dedicated offshore personnel to customers primarily in the marketing and advertising sector, as well as in the more "hardcore" software development industry.
We're relatively young, fast and efficient and have a large international network. We want to leverage quality offshore suppliers by selling their products and services in markets, which they themselves often can not reach.
For our clients, we help describe their vision based on their needs (writing software specifications, vision / scope documents etc). After this we help them find the best team / company for the job / need.
As such, we do a lot of international business, connecting clients in one country with suppliers in another.
Regarding the name: Our corporation will be named Vitesse Digital, but our brand will possibly just be "Vitesse". If someone comes up with an interesting logo for the name Vitesse Digital, we will definitely consider this.
As mentioned, our clients are primarily in the marketing and advertising sector, as well as in software development. Most of our suppliers are naturally in IT, usually software development / IT consultancy. Obviously we have clients and suppliers in many different countries, so the logo should hopefully cater to an international crowd.
***UPDATE*** IN THE BOTTOM OF THIS TEXT
We have initially thought of something which looks classy, and possibly a bit conservative. Initially, we envisioned "Vitesse" or "Vitesse Digital" written in black on a white background, in some form of classic font, and possibly with some special V character. The idea was to signal style, high-class and serious business.
Right now we are a bit in doubt though, as we obviously want to hit our target group in the best way. We are not completely sure, that we should go for a conservative look, so if the designers out there has any great ideas, we'd love to see them.
Some of our values are speed, efficiency, building high value for our clients and a dependable delivery. I guess the logo needs to say "these guys are dependable professionals".
So as you can se, we don't know exactly what we want, but we want it when we see it ;)
We have now gotten very good submissions, which I think match exactly what we describe in the above.
I know this will sound horribly vague, but we want to try and see something which is a bit more funky / upbeat / high quality agency / young startup (without going too much into animal mascots and the like).
We'd love to see a logo in a design style, which strenghens what we stand for. What we stand for is ofcourse sales and offshoring, but also high quality web solutions, like large websites, webshops, flash games, ria web applications etc (as this is what we sell to our clients).
