I need the logo for Updatica site at updatica.com. The name must appear in the logo and may be spelled in any way ("Updatica", "updatica", "UPDATICA"). In general terms, the logo should have modern look, not too complicated (but not simplistic either).
The logo should work well in larger sizes (e.g. 1/4 of screen) as well as a smaller left-side logo in site's header. A (possibly simplified) black-and-white version on a dark background is a big plus, and so is reusing some distinctive part of the logo for site's 16x16px favicon.
Some graphical element should be present in the logo (i.e. not text-only), it should somehow relate to the site's functionality -- over-the-network distribution of updates for desktop applications (see also above).
Colors: up to you. Keep in mind that the site's design will have to match the logo w.r.t. colors, though.
Speaking of web site's design, I'm aiming for "Mac-ish" look, as seen e.g. here:
That's (vaguely!) the general feel the site will have, your logo should fit with it.
The logo should be delivered in vector format (AI, SVG, ...; favicon as a bitmap).
Finally, I'm open to good ideas, so don't let the above examples constrain you!
