As mentioned in the project summary, we need a logo to help create a brand identity for a new internet marketing company called Sharp Dome. The company provides a range of internet marketing consulting services. Our specialty is helping companies bring new customers to their business by using the many technologies of the internet.
The logo for Sharp Dome needs to convey an image that is professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy. It should also give a feeling of being modern, state of the art, and using the latest methods, technologies and techniques. It should be clean, uncluttered, and simple in appearance, without being formal or stuffy.
The Meaning of Sharp Dome:
The "dome" in Sharp Dome was inspired by Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, California. The word dome is also slang for a person's head, or brain.
The "sharp" in Sharp Dome was meant to be like a knife, as an efficient tool to cut through difficult competition. It was also meant to convey a company that is smart, intelligent, and knowledgeable.
A winning logo design can employ these concepts in some form, but does not need to do so. Feel free to get creative!
For more information on Half Dome, please see:
Customers are small and medium sized business owners and/or the people/team responsible for their web site development or general marketing activities. The customers are principally located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.
We need a professional looking logo that appeals to the customers groups identified above. The logo must work in both large and small formats, both in color and black and white, and on mediums as diverse as a business card, a web page, an email newsletter, a power point presentation, a printed proposal, etc. A future contest will be run for these additional items.
We envision a design using the colors blue, black, gray, and white, perhaps taking inspiration from the gray granite of Half Dome and the white clouds seen against a deep blue sky seen in many photos.
The use of these color suggestions is not a requirement. Feel free to use your imagination!
