How SuzanneP started their logo design journey

Summary

We offer on-site consulting, remote consulting and do-it-yourself templates for automobile dealerships on the Red Flags Rule. The Red Flags Rule is a U.S. federal requirement which mandates that companies which arrange or extend credit to consumers must have a written Identity Theft Prevention Program (“Red Flags Program”). We also have a corporate blog which discusses broader issues related to government regulation and business.

We are a small business and want to look “small” in the positive sense of the word. There are any number of compliance consulting companies out there that charge $300 bucks an hour for everyone in the room including the donut delivery guy. They have web sites that are big, solid, bank-like, vault, greek columns, all the rest. We charge on a flat-fee basis, create a tailored, quality product in a reasonable amount of time, and send handwritten thank-you cards and a batch of cookies to our consulting clients.

Can you help us with a logo that fits our company? Please read the brief for more detail.

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

Weare looking for a logo for our web site, RedFlagsMadeEasy.  Please do not feel use colors or other elementsfrom that site; it is just a Yahoo hosting template and will undergo a redesignafter we have a logo.

Wedo not want to appear unprofessional or Mom and Pop -ish.  We offer real value to our customers thatincludes:
- We save them an immense amount of time
- We offer a quality product that reduces the risk of identity theft while not turning the customer's business model upside down
- We are reasonably priced, charging a flat fee for our products and engagements
- We make a complex project simple and easy to complete and implement; we break things down step-by-step for the customer.Anexample of a logo that I really like is from Clarity Accounting.  I love the piggy bank and the way it conveysa complex set of ideas (security, money, trust, simplicity, planning, etc.) inone simple, clear image.  Although theyoffer accounting software, their logo is not a spreadsheet, abacus, ledger,calculator, or dollar sign; a piggy bank is something simpler that evokes positivefeelings in most people.

Mostpeople do not wake up thinking, “WOW I can’t wait to go do some bookkeepingtoday!” and yet their logo associates something positive to the task.  Similarly, none of our customers wake upthinking, “WOW I can’t wait to write an Identity Theft Prevention Program tocomply with some federal regulation today!” and we want a logo that associatessomething positive with it.  Can youhelp?

- Vector graphic
- Image and company name
- Friendly, approachable

Don't want
