Alex is an absolute pleasure to work with! He is prompt, flexible, and very creative. Our one-on-one project required a lot of back and forth and Alex created great designs very quickly. We did not have a very clear idea of what we wanted but we let Alex know about the ideas we were hoping to showcase; he did a great job creating icons based on abstract information and did so very promptly. He is quick to respond and easy to communicate with.
I had a wonderful experience working with Alex I definitely recommend him for a one-on-one project.

Some portion of the logo must have the color cardinal in it (Hex #: 990000). That could be text or any other artistic element.
Professional but distinct Web 2.0 feel
Logo could have:
Play on the labs theme (using beaker is a possibility)
Use a sapling (we're helping to grow ideas into businesses, Stanford's unofficial mascot is the tree, Stanford's official seal has a redwood).
Could have the sapling in or emerging from a beaker

Must have the following files:
Print file (.ai w/ CMYK)
