Ideally, I would like brand color(s) that highlight a perfect balance of competence and warmth. I would like a logo that also would work in all black or all white. Please make the company name, “Cleverhorn” easy to comprehend. (no preference with all caps, lowercase, etc.)
The simple meaning of Cleverhorn is "smart messaging.”
In my attempts at iconography research based upon this meaning the symbols that seem most relevant are some sort of "smart building blocks" like gears, tech hardware parts, puzzle pieces etc. combined with symbols of “creating appealing sound” like musical instruments (horns), sound tuning dials, etc.
Our typical consulting engagement involves filling in "missing pieces" of a tech firm’s marketing/sales strategy and tactics while helping them create the right messaging/advertising/etc., for the right person, at the right time.
