Further requirements

I've had about 10 different designs created already. They were all pretty expected, which was disappointing. We can't claim to be a cutting edge company that will deliver forward thinking and have an 'ordinary' logo.

Another key with this logo is readability. It has to look good when it's bigger - e.g. the main focus on a slide, and when it's small, and tucked down in the corner of a slide. All the ones I've seen so far only look good large. When they get small for corner slide placement you can only see 'ahead' and 'curve.'

We sell mostly to upper executives and business owners, so the logo can't be too wacky or wild. Edgy professional would be ideal.

Our current slogan is Outpace Your Marketplace(tm).
