I'm a web developer, all around programmer, SEM marketer, IT project manager.
Fortune 500 companies, real estate agents, politicians. I am an IT professional seeking a professional image for a wide range of clientele.
Something that portrays my name as an IT director.
Here are some of the things I want:
White background - My logo will mostly go on letterheads and print material
My name presented - I would like my name to be equally dominant with the graphic you choose.
Colors - No neons or high contrast, maybe burgundy/maroon with sandstone
Gradients and reflections - I need soft gradients and reflections that print well.
wide logo - width maybe 2x the overall height
Name and Graphic - I would like these merged in any way so it doesn't look like two separate graphics.
slogan - possibly a slogan like "IT strategy & deployment"
Possible images - Chess Knight, or anything that symbolizes strategy
