How assaf started their logo design journey

Company name

Gigantt

Overview

(Keywords: Zoom, Fractal, Plan)

I'm the founder of Gigantt, a very early stage startup. The product I'm working on will be a web application that allows you to plan complex projects with a revolutionary UI approach. Basically a ZUI (Zoomable User Iterface) approach (like Google Maps) but applied to editing a huge graph of work items collaboratively.

If you're familiar with Gantt charts, imagine a gantt chart that you can zoom into in order to view another tiny Gantt chart embedded inside it, detailing its various sub-tasks. I'm attaching a sketch of the UI concept so you'll get an idea of how it looks. The screenshot shows a "Gigantt" version of the plot of the movie Ocean's Eleven. You can see how the various stages of their plan are represented recursively in a sort of a fractal version of a Gantt chart.

Some other planned features of this product:
1. Collaboratively edited simultaneously on the web. Like a Wiki page.
2. Very easy to drag/drop and edit the plan with keyboard shortcuts (like mind maps).
3. Images, documents and conversations are also embedded into the graph itself, so all the context for every work item is right there to view.

So far I only have a link to my blog: http://blog.gigantt.com/
website it still under construction.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Mainly software developers and team leaders, as this product targets people who wish to have a better tool for planning their projects. Although anyone with a project to plan can basically use this interface.

In a sentence: people who are sick of the likes of MS Project and want to be able to compose and track their work plan online in an intuitive graphical UI with no slow and annoying forms to fill.

Requirements

Something that captures the inifinite-zoom aspect of the UI. Would be nice if it also gave a visual cue that we're talking about a graphical representation of a work plan. I had some ideas about the logo showing the name Gigantt and somehow incorporating a small depiction of a tiny graph. But I'm not sure that much would fit into the logo comfortably, and that's why I come to the experts. :) Feel free to go wild, though.

This basically would be the first thing designed for Gigantt, so it would dictate much of the look and feel of my website and product. So.. no pressure.

I expect the result to be, naturally, some open vector format that I could edit in Gimp or some other free tool.
