While our current client base is in the greater China market, our suppliers are in the US and we expect to broaden our market in the future. As a result, the logo would ideally be something that can be recognized globally, but most notably be applicable and not offensive in any way in the US and in Asia.
It should contain the full name of the company, so whether it's a pictoral mark with the name to the side or a picture somehow worked into the name, I think "Mantis Energy" could probably be more prominent than "Solutions."
If a pictoral mark is created, it probably shouldn't be too complicated (i.e., don't use a full mantis unless it's simple like maybe an outline?), but should still give the majority of people an idea of what the pictoral mark represents. It could be included with the M in "Mantis" or some other letter or letters in the name.
Also, the colors are just suggestions. We're open to different colors. We're definitely not designers, so if you have a better idea, go for it.
