I am an entrepreneur that runs several businesses, and is ever looking to expand into more businesses.
The name 99 Enterprises (no relation whatsoever to 99 Designs), comes from a nickname my mom once gave me. She said I was always in search of just "one more thing" and was never quite satisfied. How true!
So I chose the name 99 Enterprises, and formed an LLC, as a way of expressing my interest in so many things and having a name that made that ok --- and a name that suggested my constant sense of searching for yet one more thing.
99 Enterprises should be versatile (think "Virgin" --- Virgin Airlines, Virgin Megastores, Virgin Mobile, Virgin Wines, Virgin Records, etc...) I dream of making 99 the same kind of thing.
This logo needs to be versatile. I work in consulting, e-commerce retail, publishing, print, wine, and more. Mostly, I'll be working with business partners and for savvy consumers - so 99 Enterprises should be versatile (think "Virgin" --- Virgin Airlines, Virgin Megastores, Virgin Mobile, Virgin Wines, Virgin Records, etc...) I dream of making 99 the same kind of thing.
99 is really the focal point. It's me. But 99 Enterprises is the name of the company so the word "Enterprises" cannot be left out of this logo or logotype (except in the favicon, of course).
The 99 should be immediately identifiable, clean, fresh, versatile (can work in both full color and single color applications), yet also work as a simple favicon or within a simple square icon, if need be.
99 should be identifiable on its own so that it can be used for other business titles (ex. 99 publishing, 99 wholesale, etc...)
I prefer a clean look that is professional, but I do appreciate the sense of color and versatility - so please try to understand my needs as an investor, entrepreneur, and young professional.
I've attached a few designs that I thought were interesting and that combined letters and numbers in a graphical way. (in the BBC logos - I like the treatment of the number 6 with the offset word...)
Thank you! And good luck!
