We are a new company selling and installing Internet Protocol-based security system components (cameras, servers, software and cabling etc) and complete solutions to businesses, commercial landlords and home owners. We sell directly and via business partners.
The "2020" (as in "2020 vision") in the company name is intended to reflect the fact that the surveillance systems we sell provide high-definition images which are of substantially higher quality than the normal "grainy" images associated with older systems. For this reason one option for the logo design might be to use a mix of pixellation and non-pixellation to get the point across.
The target audience is wide and varied. We sell to business partners (e.g. alarm technicians) and to businesses. In the future we intend to franchise and franchisees' vehicles and uniforms will be branded with the 2020 Security logo.
We want the logo to reflect the fact that we are an innovative company focused on delivering peace-of-mind security technology to our customers.
Think of us as a "Web 2.0 security company" and design something cool and different around that :-)
The type face should be clear and bold. No script fonts etc please.
Please feel free to experiment with colours but please keep to a maximum of 3 or 4 and no complex gradients please.
We do not want to be perceived as a physical security company (i.e. bodyguards or bouncers etc) so no images of tough guys or locks and keys etc thanks. Also, no cartoons, stock images or clipart please.
We need images for use in printed materials (business cards, brochures etc) and for our new web site and required both the output files (JPEG etc) and the source files.
