A few design notes:
No current logo
We would like to be able to laser engrave the icon portion of the logo onto the parts
The new logo needs to include an icon/image that can stand alone from the text.
The new logo will need to work well in color (including reds) but also well as a solid white or black logo.
The new logo should scale well through all viewports and display sizes.
The icon portion of the new logo should make for a good favicon design for the browser
Experiment with fonts.
Any font chosen should have clean, modern lines that suggest technology and innovation
Design themes and inspiration:
Most security sites and gun sites use a lot of dark backgrounds
We are including the browning logo because we love the icon portion of the logo and the clean and techy feel that the font and icon convey. The logo works very well as an icon or text. The icon without the logo text would hopefully be a good stand along image that could be laser engraved into the products.
We are including the Xproducts logo because we think this icon also does a good job of conveying strength and security. Like the blocky letters and like that it works well as an icon as well
We are also including the Fortis logo. We like the idea of the shield and strength and security behind it. The icon part of this logo works very well too. The F5 in our logo should be able to stand out like this.
Overall in this logo contest we are very open to your creative ideas. We want a logo that is clean and simple, recognizable and synonymous with security, strength, and the firearm industry.
