The following values should be considered in the ideation of this icon; Innovative, Open, Transparent, Impactful, Energetic, Intentional, Inclusive, Collaborative, Courageous and Future Focused.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
At this phase, our team is looking for inspiration and ideas. We are hoping a collaboration with the 99Design community will lead to a series of great ideas and inputs that our team can move forward with.
The icon will often be used independently, this requires that the icon be of substance and able to stand on its own; e.g. it should not exist solely within a shape (circle, square, etc.) The icon requires that it be built as a vector graphic; scalable and distinct at all sizes, and in all variations, whether print or digital.
Ultimately we are looking to stay away from ideas that contain or reference lightbulbs, lightning, clouds, brainstorm(s), windows and/or doors.
Thanks for your interest in this brief, we appreciate your time and willingness to contribute!
