Contest Brief

Dear Designers

We are setting up a new company that provides consulting advice to small and medium sized business owners that are planning to sell their business. Our service will be provided in 3 areas:
1. Analysis – Analyse the business financials and operations and give an estimated valuation and identify any impediments to sale.

2. Improvement – provide recommendations for business improvement to remedy any sale impediments and give an estimated business valuation based on implemented improvements.

3. Transactions – provide a business broking sales transaction channel to match buyers with sellers of businesses.

"Strategic Exits" will be the name of the (Australian) company. We would like the logo to encompass the name and also a symbol/icon graphically representing the business. We are qualified accountants and financial analysts so the logo should have a very professional feel to it.
The logo should be simple yet innovative and modern. It should be a minimal & flat design.
The symbol could be incorporated into the name words somehow or it could go before, or after, or on top, or below of the name and the name can be either with both words in one line or the two words split over two lines. We are open to see some creative ideas.
Words/Description that may inspire you are:
Strategic = we will work with the business owner months / years before sale to build a well thought-out and structured plan to sell the business at the best possible price.
Exits = we will assist the owner in the sale transaction by assisting to identify and introduce possible buyers and to negotiate the best price.

Colors: we are open to your ideas, but we like orange, blue, or green (not necessarily together or any at all..feel free to use other colours if you like.

We need all design sources and formats i.e. JPEG, PNG, PSD, AI, EPS and TIFF. And transparent. The logo should also be delivered in full colour mode, and also in solid white and solid black.

    Hi
    I have just come out of a meeting with my business partner and we have come up with a final concept that we want the logo to be based on.
    We would like it to be similar to this: "http://imgur.com/pDgF0Ub,5GE6ZxF#1"
    BUT:
    1 With only 3 bars in the graph and not 4 (the 4th large green bar should be eliminated).
    2 And the bars should be reversed in their left to right order so that the small green bar is on left, the blue in middle and the tall orange bar on the right.
    3 The large orange bar should have an arrow head on the end of it (...signifying the "Exits" part of the name) that extends and bends to point up and to the right.
    4 The text should read "Strategic Exits" and ".com.au" under it in smaller font. The "x" in Exits should be formed by using the orange bar/arrow from the symbol above.


    See here: "http://imgur.com/pDgF0Ub,5GE6ZxF#0" for a very poorly done concept mockup that I did just now.

    Please present some variations of the above description - thank you.

    Hi,
    Some of the designs are looking good - keep up the good work!.. but none have really "wowed" me yet.

    I would like to also maybe see some designs using a green (eg R:125 G:175 B:25) and Grey/Black combination?.. I think that may look fresh and appealing?

    And perhaps a simple yet clever symbol shape separate to the words using arrow(s) to symbolise "exits".. and maybe an abstract clock face type of thing for strategic/planned??.. but it SHOULDN'T be too complex or intricate...just ideas to help get the "creative juices" going?
