The Solution Machine
FIRST, MY PROMISE TO YOU: I will be an active participant in this project, giving quick and thorough feedback. I really WANT your help, and I want to give you whatever you need to have fun with this!
We are starting a new business called the Solution Machine, and we will likely funnel some business to you through it!
"Need a logo, website, flyer, video, powerpoint, or even your own book? The Solution Machine will do it!"
Our business will specialize in taking people's ideas and forming them into cutting edge logos, websites, and more through a collaborative, team effort. We want this logo to represent the best that can be done because it will be our flagship! And the winner will likely get more work from us as we help other people!
We want our look to be very web 2.0, very contemporary and maybe even a bit goofy. The idea is that people will bring us problems or projects, and we will solve them. We will do logos, websites, videos, flyers, software applications, landing pages, marketing, etc. And our emphasis is completing these projects with a TEAM method. In our materials, we might emphasize “cloud solution creation,” meaning we will bring together a community of experts to complete these projects.
Business professionals and business owners, male and female, ages 25-60
I AM OPEN TO CREATIVE IDEAS! AND THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SHINE!
I see two ideas for the logo. One would be primarily text. It might have a symbol or two, but primarily text. If you do something with gears, make sure they are colorful and not overly complex.
The possibility would be more 3 dimensional, perhaps of some goofy looking machine with a question going in and a solution coming out. I don’t know how you might convey that. But I would want the machine to look either simple or whimsical and NOT realistic. I am thinking rounded edges, simple shadows, nothing too complex. Something like watch gears might work!
Maybe a machine with question marks going in, and exclamation marks coming out?
Colors? Web 2.0 colors. I am favoring light green or light blue, and maybe the machine itself is gray or shades of gray.
POSSIBLE TAG LINES:

HAVE FUN WITH THIS ONE! YOU DON'T HAVE TO DESIGN THE SAME OLD TRADITIONAL LOGO!
MAKE IT FUN and WHIMSICAL!
