I am looking for a design that provides two things: 1) an icon / image that is simple but can stand alone without the company name and be recognized, and 2) the combined icon and company name.
The icon may be designed in the company name, or it can be separate. If separate, I tend to prefer when the icon is to the left of the company name, but I am open to alternatives.
The name "ChannelFuse" seems to look better on one line, but I am open to designs with it in two lines. Separating the two words of Channel and Fuse with different colors or font styles does look good visually.
One idea for the "icon" is to do some representation of an old-fashioned rocket, the type seen in cartoons. You can see some images below. These are just to give ideas and PLEASE do not think that you need to match the style of these rockets with candy-striping or exact design. In fact, a more abstract representation of a rocket is probably best if you want to try this. But, I am not specifically looking for a rocket icon. I am open to all icon ideas that you think might be a good fit for my business.
In the end, my business is more about "fusing" together the three channels of my clients' businesses. It is NOT about making or using rockets. But, I do like the concept of "lighting a fuse" as this could be used in tag lines and other marketing messaging to be catchy.
Please be open and creative in your ideas. I do not want to be limiting your talent too much! Have fun!
