Please read the brief to wrap your head around this one. I suggest organizing by rating to see my favorite works so far.
We need a good name, logo and tagline that conveys some information, even if abstractly, about our business. The information could be about what we do or the benefits of using us.
We've though of a few things, but aren't settled on any of them. I am extremely open to all ideas. The ideas below are just ideas - you should not feel constrained or limited by them. Here are a few taglines, and logo ideas we brainstormed:
Logos that say "We Provide a Corporate Façade"
My rough drawing depicts a building rotating around a house (click Read the Brief to access a PDF sketch) - the idea being that we provide a corporate façade to home based businesses. A house morphing into an office would convey a similar message.
Logos that say "Here, Your Small Business is Part of a Connected Network" - maybe a tree with homes and offices and other symbols on it could reflect the interconnectivity of home and work and other small businesses. There is also a play on words that could be incorporated regarding "branch offices."
Flowers with bees on them surrounding a bee hive;
Logos that convey our technological advantage:
A phone on wheels that looks like a car; a lap-top acting as the roof of a house;
Logos that covey the lifesytle advantages of a virtual office (no commute; working from home; someone elese hiring and managing your staff; etc.)
man in a recliner on top of a hectic business scene (maybe a frantic receptionist); image of a house on left (done in a calm color), black line down center, black or red office building on right;
a board room in a living room (a play on words - "Welcome to your bored room" (board spelled incorrectly on purpose)
CITY_NAME Virtual Offices (i.e. Spokane Virtual Offices, Seattle Virtual Offices, etc.)

We are Spokane Virtual Offices, but we are open to changing the name. We need a good name and logo mark that conveys some information, even if abstractly, about the
business. The information could be about what we do or the benefits of
Our clients are small and home based businesses for whom
traditional brick and mortar office solutions are not viable, either because
they must work from home, they want to work from home, they are always in the
field, or their business is too small to warrant the overhead. Clients
pay a monthly fee (the amount depends on the bundle of services they
want). In exchange, we provide some or all of the following business/corporate resources: a physical, business address, as well as mail receipt and forwarding; staffing solutions, including a receptionist, assistants, runners and so forth physical meeting space for conducting meetings or working on projects business equipment such as a PC based phone system, phone and fax line, mail
center, credit-card processing, furnished office/work space, internet
connection, printers, etc.
We also ask that our tenants provide their services at a
discount to other tenants to promote a strong network of small businesses who
get the benefit of discounts often only available to big businesses.
The benefits include the ability to work from home, low
overhead, corporate image and resources for cheap, flexability, a built-in
network of other small businesses, and reciprocal discounts.
