You can check out our website-in-progress at http://preview.avecpc.com.
We're currently changing things around so you may see some lipsum here and there, and some things are broken, but it should provide a good resource nonetheless.
Avec is a very small computer repair business that provides superior PC service. We're currently branching out to the Data Backup and Disaster Recovery market, and we need a new logo for our latest venture.
The name of the service will be simply Avec Data. This logo will be used on our website and on the software that's currently in development. We chose the name Avec Data because it was simple, and it invokes something of the nature of Google. (Google Docs, Google Voice, Google Mpas, etc).
All our existing marketing comes across clean and professional, and we'd like that to continue with the new service logo.
Our demographic is 50K+ and generally 30 - 60 years old. There is no gender preference.
With this backup service we are targeting consumer and small to medium business.
We need a simple and clean logo. Look our existing marketing material at http://preview.avecpc.com/promotions/ to get an idea of how this logo will be used.
As for the logo itself - it can be simple typeface, or you can incorporate some imagery, perhaps a lock for security, some ones and zeros, file folders, cloud backup, whatever. Be creative - nothing is forbidden. We'll pick whatever looks best and fits inline with our existing online persona.
We must receive the logo in .AI format - it must be vector
This is also a private contest - we've had issue in the past with folks posting their work for us in places like flickr. Please do not do it. Not only will we not use your submission, but we'll have to ask you to take it down.
Please respond with any questions, we're new to this contest business, so we've probably left out quite a bit of necessary information.
Attached you'll find our existing logo in .AI.
