How Dinh started their logo design journey

Summary

Vague Industries is a solutions company for creative engineering needs. Our tag line is "Innovation from the undefined."

Company name

Vague Industries

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

As the company name implies, Vague Industries covers a wide spectrum of products and solutions. We need a corporate logo that inspires confidence, demonstrates innovation, and is ultimately unique.

When I give out my business card which I envision having the logo on one with details & a mini logo on the other, I want it to drip with the idea "We solve problems."

--oo--

Keywords to inspire your creativity:
- Technology (Computers, Keyboards, Silicon Chips, etc)
- Manufacturing (Factories, Machines, Mills, etc)
- Answers / Solutions
- Mysterious / Unclear
- Non-Standard
- Separate from the pack
- Entrepreneurial
- Tools (Wrenches, Screwdrivers, Saws, etc)
- Speed (Fast, Rapid, Quick, etc)--oo--

Colors that I like for inspiration (don't limit yourself though!):
- #1672FB
- #41DE3C
- Think bold... Think high contrast... Think young.--oo--

Please feel free to submit half-drawn sketches of ideas so we can talk about them and see if its worth pursuing for submission.

--oo--

A couple of ideas/thoughts that I haven't seen come up but I think would be interesting are:
- Factory variations.. Please be inspired by, but don't copy: http://b.igfish.net/share/factory_1.gif & http://b.igfish.net/share/factory_2.png
- Engineering (Gears?) + Creativity (Light Bulbs?) + Abstraction (Blobs?)
- Pixelated gear or wrench or lightbulb : Pixelated in my mind is "Pixel Art" or art made out of big square pixels of a solid color. Perhaps stylized where not all the pixels are present.
- Sawed off shotgun shooting gears/light bulbs (random thought, but probably wouldn't do well as a favicon)
- Vernier caliper / Outside micrometer ( measuring a blob )
- Adding wings.. like to a gear

Wants

- A "Sticky" Logo.. Something that stays with people and is instantly recognizable.
- Show that we're idea people, we build things, and we can do anything.
- Must be unique and not a variant on another company's logo.
- Less colors the better. 3 colors max with no gradients. Must be able to be cleanly silkscreened / vinyl cut. Preference towards ability to silhouette the logo and not lose meaning.
- Minimalistic / Simple / Hip / Trendy / Web-2.0 / Abstract styles are great.
- Must be able to be used and branded as the logo by itself, or combined with the words "Vague Industries"
- Must be able to generate a 1:1 ratio image with the Logo centered for use as Favicons, Avatars, etc. (Doesn't have to be perfectly 1:1, but closer the better)
- Preferred if it will look good as a Favicon
- Bold use of colors. Would be great if it can be reversed/varied based on media.
- Vector graphic image (Illustrator, SVG, etc) w/ a couple color variations (w/ B&W Lineart), Favicon, and Avatar scalings.

Don't want

- Something that looks just like something someone else has.
- Too many colors
- Nothing too generic
