How constructaid started their logo design journey

Summary

Design a logo for a major tool manufacturer that will be seen by the entire walls and ceilings industry and admired by contractors world-wide. Sur-Pro (pronounced Sure Pro), has rebranded and is now looking for an amazing logo that captures market attention and resonates among professional contractors.

Company name

Sur-Pro + Tagline "Be Sure."

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

Look at DeWalt (http://www.dewalt.com), Black & Decker (http://www.blackanddecker.com), and Stanley Tools (http://www.stanleytools.com) to see other big brand tool manufacturers.  The competition!

Here is a link that shows the current Sur-Pro logo among other leading tool brands:

The Logo:

Typeface/WordMark: Clean, simple, strong and bold.  Something tight that can easily beapplied to a multitude of media - tools, packaging, product brochures, box,web, etc. 
Icon/Logo Mark:  A simple icon that isn't literal to the tools, butrather expresses the branding in an esoteric manner. Sur-Pro's brand messagingis about Quality, Value, Innovation and Service, so a logo that had 4 points,stripes, lines, or other elements that could build into the Sur-Pro brand storywould be great.

Tagline:

Be Sure.

Colors:Black, Yellow and Gray preferred.  Black, Green, and Gray as a secondaryoption.  I'm also open to other strong 3-color pallets that help the brandbuild a recognizable color association.
