I've put my current idea together slowly over the last 2 weeks, and changed it a couple times.
This is the general idea I had for my logo, but I'm definitely open to suggestions and others ideas.
To explain the sample logo attached:
I liked the idea of incorporating the 'O' in Cycopter into a centre feature.
I went with Century Gothic font, since the characters are generally round, which suited this instance where I used a round eye. Also interested in say a camera aperture symbol.
The business will be in unmanned aerial media - aka drones, multicopters, etc - fitted with an DSLR camera for photo and video.
I picked the name from what you see in the sky when flying an aerial setup like this - an DSLR camera, with a large lens hanging from the drone.
This got me thinking of a cyclops with it's one eye.
Copter was picked for what the equipment is - a RC helicopter or multicopter.
To help with my idea, I've done a rough copy and paste of stock art demo pics from Shutterstock.com.
I like the color blue for the company mascot.
I've also read that first impressions of the color can lead to feelings of Trust, Knowledge, Loyalty, Long-Term relationship, etc.
With the industry I'm entering, I think that 'feeling' may be important.
The futuristic/robotic eye stood out to me more than a biological eye, but didn't experiment with the biological either.
I do prefer solid colors and symbols over highly detailed and shaded.
The multicopter above is what I would call alright... and closest representation to what I 'think' I like.
That is a basic 2D side on view, with the multicopter attached to the eye (carrying it).
Design is not my field of expertise... and what I think may be good, is probably rubbish compared to the work of professionals.
Looking forward to seeing what come's back.
