We are a drone company that specializes in building high-end, hybrid-electric drones that fly 10X longer than existing drones. We are selling these drones to companies who want to replace manned aircraft for package delivery and inspection.
Our customers expect precision engineering, performance, and above all else, safety. These are the concepts we want to convey through our logo.
Great example logos are from Icon Aircraft, Lockheed, Boeing, XCOR, and other aerospace companies. These logos are attached below.
We are a bunch of physicists and engineers. Some interesting designs to us personally are equation symbols (image attached) and sonic booms (images attached). Don't feel compelled to use these...come up with what you think would be best.
Do not feel compelled to use or design around our current logo. One of the biggest problems with our current logo is that there is no icon version of it. So whatever you guys decide to come up with, please make sure it can be made into a standalone icon. Please message me if you need clarification.
Some other concepts that are interesting are "abstract birds" and bird tails (images attached).
NOTE: We've received designs with lots of intricate detail. We'd really like to shy away from this type of design because it will not be easily recognizable from a distance and will be difficult to print on T-shirts. It's our view that simpler is better. See Amazon, Facebook and Nike. Simple, iconic designs.
Please let me know what else I can provide! Thanks, and I look forward to seeing your submissions.
BONUS: We want to do a website design and advertising design after this and may hire the designer who wins this contest.
