I'm an entrepreneur, academic, researcher, crazy-busy business person. I have been working with senior Information technology leaders (Chief Information Officers or CIOs are who most of my clients are). I have been a professor for a while in my career, teaching in a major business school. I am currently running my own company. It's a CIO advisory services firm and I have a number of 'business units'. One of them is the IT Leaders Forum, the program I'm seeking a logo for.
My company is conservative in some ways and liberal in others. We are trying to help our clients explore new ideas for their business, but at the same time, we normally present ourselves in a more traditional manner, since our clients are very large, global companies. Our 'image' should appeal to both.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is IT Leaders...chief information officers, their direct reports, and many of the others in the executive ranks who would 'pay the invoice'.
I've recently launched a new program for Information Technology (IT) leaders called the IT Leaders Forum. I am in the process of creating a web page and stationary. I'm a terrible designer, but have tried to create a banner that I'm currently using. It's also my twitter photo, too. I really need some professional eye to create a logo that would work better. I'd plan to use it on all my official correspondence with my members.
You can see what I've done so you can get an idea of what appeals to me...I like the colors, the stars, the global context, etc. I don't focus on technology but I take technology leaders and help them understand business issues.
