I designed our current logo myself (http://www.vaulter.com). The company ethos is tied to the concept of pole vaulting, hence the name. Pole vaulting is a track sport that allows an athlete to spring to new heights using a specialized tool, the pole vault pole. Our current logo is a vaulter, minus the pole, but we would love to see the actual pole integrated into the logo. I am attaching an image of how we came up with the current logo.
Pole vaulting, like business, requires desire, ability, the right tool, and guidance and coaching on using that tool. The combination of those things allows the vaulter to jump 15-20 feet in the air, MUCH higher than a normal person can jump, using nothing but speed and technique.
The current logo font is less than ideal, we would love to move something more "Web 2.0", as cliche as that sounds, like PT Sans. We are looking for simple, fun, and expressive.
