We need an icon to go along with the word mark of GlobalOne. The design can be either horizontal or vertical and be able to work with or without the icon and with or without the slogan.
We will have several subsidiaries that will need to use the same logo, but have their own name added to it. For example, GlobalOne has a genomic testing subsidiary named GlobalOne Genomics. In my attached example I show how it can be incorporated.
For the icon we would like to see either a single stylized simple shape that incorporates both a "G" and an "O", either upper case or lowercase, or just a stylized letter "G", or the letters "G" and "O" together. Or, anything else that a designer may come up with. We don't want to put a designer in a box. We just need the next Adobe, Nike, Google, Facebook, Cisco, Apple, Amazon. Should be easy ;-)
The logo needs to stand up and be in the same class as the logos and icons for the top tech companies in the world, as well as the Fortune 100 companies. We have to look like a top 20 tech company. The icon must be simple. The icon will also be used in the design of our token (crypto currency). Our token symbol will be "GO". Perhaps there is a unique way to incorporate this into the icon, but is not mandatory. We just want the best design possible for the icon.
I am attaching a design that I like, but that my boss does not. He does like the font. I created the "G" and the "O" so that they would be circular, and the "G" would be similar to the icon, but don't rely on this. It is just an example. The font for the other letters is Proxima Nova. The slogan uses Myriad Pro. We want your best ideas, so don't feel constrained by the example.
