Our branding will fit the tower rising out of the clouds as the masthead of the website - I need the logo version of that.
I really like how http://thoughtbot.com/ has a very identifiable logo that they can tweak for different formats and sizes, even down to the favicon size.
I will likely commission more work adapting the winning logo across our branding - such as a new website. I understand that it is additional work to adapt the branding to different sizes, I am looking for something with a clear enough identity I can see how that will be done.
While I want it to be recognizable as Sutro, maybe a direct translation to a logo is tough. Experiment and be creative - is it easier and more iconic if you ax the middle leg and make it a silhouette, or does it work better in detail and sketchy? I'm betting I'll select chic and clean, but I am trying 99designs to see some a range of design directions.
I've attached a rough ugly sketch of the portion of the tower I think important.
Also there is zipfile from another designer with some good ideas in them (fully paid for), but nothing that quite settled on what I was looking for. I think the vector work of the tower is to detailed/complicated/literal for this project.
