The images, sketches, and screenshots are for reference ONLY. We previously had the logo created for temporary use while we're still pre-launch, but turns out the designer didn't create a unique logo.
We like the logo though, and imagine having one created that's similar, but a UNIQUE piece of art. We cannot stress this enough. The idea is that "monk" is a play on being both a traditional monk, while also being a monkey who reads patents and is wise. We've affectionately started calling him "Bananas" inside the company.
We also like the black and white sketch idea shown in one of the examples. A full black and white sketch, with the "Fig. 1" (and not the TM) would also be a version we'd be interested in seeing. It's similar in design to the images you see in patent drawings.
Final note, please make the image as high quality (retina screen beautiful) as possible. The logo, and parts of it, will be used for a myriad of different things on the website so a flawless design is very important.
