We want a simple logo. A real logo which can stay with us "forever" (you know, like the Shell logo - it has been developed through the years, but people remember it as something which has always been). The logo should show Viis (VIIS?). It should not only be written in a smart/nice font, it must be a designed logo. It should be easy to read the name Viis.
We have been thinking of Viis written in slim tubes. Not in long balloon kind of tubes, but in a slimmer kind.
The word "vice"/smart is of important (do not want a "eureka" light bulb...). Visuality is important in the design, I believe a 3D effect would be nice. In future, we might want to show the logo from various angles, turn it around etc.
One thing which I will consider, is once in a while to change the logo color with various pictures. That is, we change the fill of the logo with a picture/photo. This will not be permanent, but something we do occasionally.
On our web page, we might welcome visitors with the whole page covered by the logo. (Click and continue to the front page).
We might add a slogan, so please specify a font for this use.
Would also like to have suggestions for fonts (headings, text) for letters, webpages etc. These should be fonts avaiable in standard installations of Microsoft Word.
A dream would be to have a "distinct" color - our color. Siemens Nixdorf used to have a color (cyan?) - you could recognize the company simply from seeing the color. We will work with photo/video, so the colors could be inspired from green and blue screens, but maybe not exactly those colors? "Greyish"?
The people who will work in Viis will be named viispeople. So, later, I will need a man icon and a woman icon which matches the logo.
Later, I will also have developed icons symbolizing various Viis services.
