The company name is "CWS Engineering inc". Adding in extra words to the logo is up to artist discretion. The overall design we are looking for is more geometric, but art is not our forte, so we give free reign to artistic discretion.
Any integration of a house into the logo needs to be unique. Every other engineer seems to have one in theirs. The logo will be used on both a black and white background for clothing, website, etc. It will also be used on blueprints (which do not always have high quality printing. Therefore, being recognizable when slightly blurred and translating well to grey scale or having a B&W separate (for a small additional fee) is needed.
Thank you for your efforts, we look forward to working with you.
Edit 1: We prefer logos that have some graphic with the lettering, not just stylized letters.
Edit 2: Most designs have generic houses/buildings or stylized lettering, this is NOT what we are looking for.
