I run a small software development consultancy and am also involved in several entrepreneurial web based business. I'm looking to revive my personal brand and web presence in the very new future and feel a strong logo could help kick-start and direct that effort.
Primary - Peers in my field of software development. Primary I'm involved with open source web technologies and languages.
Secondary - Technology companies and entrepreneurs looking for a experienced leader in the software development field.
Primary use of the logo will be in digital form, but I will be using it on business cards also. I'm looking for minimal colors and must work well also in just black and white.
Here is the 'feeling' I'm looking for in a logo.
I do have a tag line: 'Software For Fun And Profit' if you want to try a revision with it, but the logo must stand on its own without it.
I'm not against a play on a 'Deer' as an icon component in the logo, but I made it through the first 10 pages of a Google images search on 'deer logo' and did not find a think I would even come close to considering.
Found this page with many strong personal logo examples. Ones that stand out the most have been attached
Deliverable should be in Illustrator compatible (vector) format.
