West Coast Hackers
WestCoastHackers.net is a brand new hackerspace. Via wikipedia, a hackerspace is a real (as opposed to virtual) place where people with common interests, usually in science, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate. A hackerspace can be viewed as an open community lab, workbench, machine shop, workshop and/or studio where people of diverse backgrounds can come together to share resources and knowledge to build/make things.
The main focus of this hackerspace will be towards computer security on both offensive and defensive sides. Offensive as in penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, reverse engineering, etc. Defensive as in vulnerability detection, intrusion detection, malware analysis, etc. Hardware and software projects will be created and either given away for free or be for sale.
Anyone interested in technology and computer security. Information security professionals, penetration testers, ethical hackers, etc.
I am looking for a logo that can stand on it's own and can become identifiable with the brand. Be creative and feel free to push the limits but make sure there is a connection with what we do.
You may use the brand name in any combination. Single word (no spaces), multi word (with spaces), all caps, lowercase, upperlower combination, with or without '.net', etc.
The logo should work equally well for print and web and be able to resize well and maintain high resolution. Provide original files (ai, eps, ps, etc) with layers intact and sample web file (png, jpg, etc). Please no clipart or stock images.
Bonus (not a requirement) would be if the logo element could be easily converted into favicon and iphone icon.
I'm happy to answer any questions, and aim to provide prompt feedback.
