*** UPDATE - we would like some uniqueness in our font choice, so perhaps manipulating the font slightly to give it original character.. We'd rather you did NOT use fonts from DaFont, Urban Font, or any of the free font sites. We'd prefer licensed fonts (not open source). A totally custom font will definitely be preferred. ***
*** UPDATE - please submit the logo as a word (no symbols), please choose a unique font and integrate ideas into the font vs. a symbol ***
Improving communication is our core service, but we simply want to be known as a software company that is modernizing processes to improve our customer's business. Since the brand is name 'Modern' we want to convey clean, simple, elegant, mysterious. We want a positive feeling invoking curiosity. We DO NOT want to be futuristic. Modern is in the present (as in now) but slightly ahead of the curve.
We like sparse use of negative space on 1 or 2 letters, but no more.
DO NOT USE - shadows, gradients, more than 2 colors
Please mock these up on plain black and white backgrounds (no background images)
