We're creating an identity that's part magic, part technology. We are looking for a modern, sleek logo that combines a strict, official-looking "coin" with an element of magic coming out of it.
Here is a very rough draft:
The coin inspiration is here (this is called the C-Note template):
The "magic" lines have three inspirations:
1) Imagine that Pixar Studios animated a Chinese dragon tail. Think about the colors, shapes and a sense of motion that they would use.
2) Check out http://www.akamai.com (they use curves as part of their main slideshow)
3) Imagine taking a tennis ball, taping colorful paper streamers to it, and throwing the ball sideways. The "tail" part of our logo could look similar.
We are looking for an 2D illustrator design. It must look great at large and small sizes. Only vector-based designs will be accepted. Please read the brief for important information.
