Seat Covers Company, Logo Design Contest

- Winner: taganherbord
I'm with Seat Covers Unlimited and our company is in need of a new logo. We manufacture Automotive Seat Covers for all Trucks, Cars, and SUV's. Our fabrics range from professional OEM looking materials, to wild and crazy styles such as animal patterns, hawaiian prints, camoflauge and more.
We want a sharp looking logo, maybe mixed with a little fun (but not wacky). Something we would feel good wrapping our company vehicles with, putting on hats and shirts, etc. The logo will also be used on our website, letterheads, and even storefront locations. Our product is one in which a customer is excited to purchase. We don't want a logo that has a boring corporate feel to it.
Colors and Lighting:
We would like the colors of the new logo to be black, red, silver grey (maybe even some chrome, see logo6 attachment from another freelancer), and white. And VERY IMPORTANT, we really want the new logo to have proper reflective lighting, and proper gradients, giving the logo a nice 3D look. See the attached file labeled "logo5" (Fugitive Alien). The gradients and reflections are spot on with this sample logo giving it a realistic 3D effect, which is what we really hope to get with our new logo (both in the text and artwork). Something with some nice shine to it that looks more realistic. For color schemes we like by other jobs on [url removed, login to view], see attachment logo1, logo2, logo3, logo4.
Our logo needs to have our company name "Seat Covers Unlimited" in it. We are open to font types and font arrangements. We'd prefer a "cool" looking font over an old fashioned font, but not so crazy or grunged out, that it's barely legible. We are open to have the text completely separate spatially from the artwork or may be incorporated (where the text is part of the artwork and/or superimposed over part of the artwork and/or integral to the artwork).
Attached is our current logo which is about 25 years old. Over the years many customers remember our company by our logo of "the guy sitting on a seat". Our new logo NEEDS to have some kind of artwork of a seat in it. It could be a wide bench seat similar to what's in our current logo, or a single one person bucket style seat. I know it will take more work, but ultimately if someone could come up with a similar looking realistic 3D character on that seat (similar to what we have), that would be the end goal. We are open to a modern cleaned up version of our current artwork with the new requirements listed in the above paragraphs (no stick figure people though). More of a realistic 3D character and seat, and less of a cartoon look. The artwork can be at an angle like or current logo, or maybe a straight on look if done right (as shown in attachment Logo1).
We are not logo designers, so if you have an idea not mentioned here that you feel would somewhat go along the lines of the direction mentioned above, go for it!
The artwork must be original. The winner will get the full prize and will in turn provide full and unlimited commercial use of artwork with no restrictions. If entry submitted contains a watermark or is not high quality, a high quality version must be provided prior to contest award. For the selected winning entry, additional design revisions may be required prior to payout of contest award.
BONUS: On top of the full payout, if we are 100% satisfied with the outcome of the final logo, the winner will also receive a free set of custom seat covers for their vehicle out of the fabric of their choice (valued between $200-$300).
