I realize there isn't a lot of room for creativity with this particular project, but I don't necessarily need a clone of the attachment either. Color should stay the same as it matches an existing site design. However, one could go in a more abstract direction with less specific detail than the attachment has. I wouldn't suggest straying far from the example though.
Not sure of the format of the deliverables, but I'd like to end up with something I can open up in Adobe Illustrator to change size, background colors, etc. I intend to use the image as part of a logo (appearing just to the left of a blocky text portion of the logo) and as an avatar for social media sites.
