Here are some key ideas the logo/brand should convey: Craftsmanship, Quality, Boutique, Innovation, Custom and Partnership.
We would like our brand to evoke the following feelings: bold, solid, reliable & trustworthy.
We look for inspiration in the Japanese word "Shyokunin" which means the ultimate craftman or artisan (think of the documentary "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" or a watchmaker of old). One who takes great pride in their craft and strives to do it to perfection. We take old established work ethics and dedication and apply it to the latest technologies. A dichotomy of the old and new.
A key component will be to remember that we are a technology company that predominantly works in a demanding creative space.
For submissions that include more than a wordmark, the icon and the wordmark should be strong enough to stand on their own. Also when possible, submissions should include the logo on light and dark backgrounds.
In the name I would likely highlight Code Engine and downplay Studio, but I am open to your creative inspiration.
