The major concepts for this are credit card processing, revenue sharing, sharing and working together in general,and non profit organization.
We are looking for a "Unique" logo that conveys these principals. Right now we're using a very stock hand-holding circle logo as shown in the attachments "np-share-logo". The other 2 logos are of our parent corporation: The Merchant Store Inc., and our online trade name: Merchant Equipment Store . These logos "can" be incorporated into this, but this isn't a requirement. Feel free to experiment.
We need this logo to be very transportable, and it needs to be recognizable (At least in part) down to a very small size, think favicon small. A clean, fresh, but not overly web 2.0'ish style is desirable. Uniqueness is absolutely essential. Our customer are from all social backgrounds and age ranges. This logo needs to be acceptable and interesting to all.
The final product must be in true .ai or .eps format, photoshop eps does not count. Please do not post a logo if you cannot provide it in a true vector format. I will post comments and feedback as quickly as possible.
