How boreas started their logo design journey

Summary

Boreas Renewables is a renewable energy project development consulting practice. Boreas is focused on wind energy work so the logo should definitely include references to wind. Boreas also does a little bit with biomass (wood) and solar energy, so if it made sense to incorporate those energy sources somehow, that would be nice but not essential if it muddies up the design.

Company name

Boreas Renewables

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

There is  a VERY basic website up right now at http://www.boreasrenewables.com.

A little about the company's name: Boreas is the greek god of north winds which was fitting since Boreas is working mainly on wind projects and they are mostly innorthern New England (USA).

I'vetried to envision some kind of logo that incorporates wind blowing andturning into the letters of the company name, but can't quite picture it right.  I've also thought of some kind of greek theme to it but that is by no means essential.

I want something crisp, clear, and professional that is easy to read and recognize.

To give you a sense for some other wind or renewable energy companies'logos and my thoughts on them, here are links to some other companieswebsites with some of my thoughts:

http://www.firstwind.com/I like it. Simple, elegant, clear.

http://www.sed-net.com/ I like it. Simple, elegant, clear.

http://independencewind.com/I don't want it to be toosimilar since we work together, but I do like their logo a lot. Simple, clear, easy to readand understand.

http://www.noblepower.com/I don't have any strong feelings about this logo either positive or negative.

http://tamarackenergy.com/ I don't think their logo reallygives any kind of impression of what they do.

 http://www.orion-energy.com/home.htmlThis is one of the companies that tried to integrate a little ofeverything into their logo - wind, water, fire, sun. I don't reallylike it because I don't feel like it's integrated well, it seems tooblocky to me.

http://www.catenergy.com/home.htmlTheir cat logo fits with the company name but it doesn't really tellme much about what they do and I find it hard to see the cat in thereuntil I look at it for a while.

http://www.sunedison.com/This is a solar company. I like their design. I also have similar feelings abouthttp://www.ases.org/

http://awea.org/I like their logo but there is a little too high of a graphic to text ratio.
