mxbridge is an existing email security service with more than half a million mailboxes. Till now this has been provided along with other services of our company. We are currently in the process of branding mxbridge and market it as independent service.
This is a fresh branding project. Designers can start with a clean slate. Website designing, end user and admin UI work will be following.
Our target audience are small to medium enterprises, ISPs and Email service providers. But end users will be seeing this logo everyday when they login to manage their Email account. This will also be seen by email server administrators on server administration pages.
mxbridge is an amalgamation of the words "mx" and "bridge". mx is a technical term in email and is explained in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MX_record Our clients will have to re-point their mx records from their servers to our cluster of servers to avail of this service. Thus the name mxbridge. If the logo can convey this meaning somehow, it would be excellent.
Logo must contain the word "mxbridge". Any part of the word "mxbridge" can be stylized as the 99 in 99designs and as in Microsoft. Logo can contain other design elements to convey idea of email security (anti-spam/anti-virus) and overall reliability. We prefer a horizontal design
It must accommodate a tag line of 4-6 words. Tentative one "Emails don't bite anymore'".
"mxbridge" is going to positioned as a serious brand (as opposed to flamboyant/wacky). So please keep that in mind especially while selecting colors.
This logo will be used on web pages, printed materials, apparels and stickers.
A recognizable form of the logo should be usable as a favicon
We promise to give feedback on all designs once daily. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any clarification.
Final output should be in a vector format preferably in Adobe Illustrator format. Also do not forget to mention the names of any fonts you are using.
