OK, we had the contest extended b/c we haven't seen a design that really grabs our attention. We like the look of Call of Duty Black Ops font. Mostly the Black Ops font. See
The Black Ops font is Bank Gothic and the COD font is Ninja431, Impact. We can write out our own name with theses fonts, that is easy. What we want is the name tied to a GREAT, EPIC, ETC graphic that will grab your attention in 20 seconds and you will never forget it! We have experimented with targets, etc ourselves, but we want a logo that sells the company by itself or with the company name. It has to be brand-able. Like when you see the Nike swoosh, McD's golden arches, you know who they belong to without the company name. We would like a color version and a black and white or grey scale version. Our original brief continues below.
Social Ops is a start-up social media consultation firm. Our goal is to help our clients maximize their reach using social media. We accomplish this goal by helping our clients reach their target audience by using precision methodologies, hence the name social ops - combining social media and special ops.
As you consider submitting a design, THINK special forces (military) meets social media. We are going to apply military precision to social media marketing. We are looking for a logo along the lines of a sniper rifle, binoculars, sniper scope, target, precision optics, etc. Hope this clarifies our needs a little.
