The company is called E--a--s--t--e--r--n C--r--e--d--i--t Ltd (remove the "-"), they essentially provide loans to businesses.
They don't especially have specific corporate colours yet, but would like the logo to be black and red; also grey could be used if you think it'll look good. It's important for them that it also works in black & white; so if you could provide samples in colour and mono that would be great.
They have the idea that the initials EC could be incorporated in to a pound sign - however I think this would look a bit too cliche but welcome to try it.
I will provide feedback on each logo but in the end it is my client who will pick the winner. Because of this contest may close earlier if there is a specific logo he deems fit.
Potential future work also available to winning logo designer.
