Over the past few years, we've seen an explosion in green building development and related building products in the U.S.
We're an emerging community of organizations, engineers, scientists, architects and manufacturers working to promote the use of solar shading as an effective way to decrease the energy consumption of our cities' buildings.
The product: "Solar Shading" is a generic industry term for any product that works to keep the sun out of buildings - usually placed above or in front of windows or large areas of glass.
Here are some examples of the solar shading we work with:
Why are we doing this? To promote collaboration around a growing range of technologies designed to optimize the use of energy in buildings.
What are we trying to get across? That we are an independent organization, not affiliated with nor sponsored by any one company. We are a consortium of companies with the same overall goal.
Our personality? We love architecture, the environment, technology and creativity. We're highly innovative.
Architects, engineers, builders, manufacturers of solar shading products.
It's an existing market, but rapidly growing.
We want to focus on those people with an eye for design, a love for the environment, yet people who are fairly technical.
We require a logo for our new blog and website. We'd like it to highlight the "solarshading.com" name as well as convey, to some degree, what the product does (protecting the sun from entering our buildings).
You are free to be creative!
Here are logos that we like (colorful, simple, modern, creative):
