We need a logo (or seal) for our newly launched Certification program. The logo will go on diplomas (much like a University diploma) as well as "brand" the whole program in all the marketing. We need something classy and very pro so people will be proud to display.
Zachman International has defined the I/T space called "Enterprise Architecture." The Zachman Framework (a 6x6 matrix) is the original Framework for Enterprise Architecture and is the de facto standard in this space.
The I/T community has been crying Zachman Certification, so we have launched the program. Our customers are the Federal Government, International Governments and VERY large organizations. Senior execs and I/T people in these organizations are seeking Zachman Certification.
The logo needs to be something these organizations would be proud to display on cards, etc.
Include corporate colors (see on site- dark blue/grey/white)
Probably be round
Include prominent "Zachman Certified"
Have room for interchangeable certification levels (see below)
Include "Zachman International, Inc" somewhere
Include spot to add each person's unique certification license number (5 character alpha-numeric)
Could include our corporate "4-box logo" (see our site)
Look very corporate
We want exclusive rights to the art
Could look "education" like you would see on diploma
Need high-res Illustrator file in order for us to change out the certification levels
Here are the certification levels we offer (so you have an idea about the interchangeable parts:
Zachman Certified - Enterprise Architect Level 1
Zachman Certified - Enterprise Architect Level 2
