The 'Forex' portion of the name denotes the foreign exchange portion of our business. We chose the word 'Agility' because it infers the following positive attributes: agile, quick, nimble, dynamic, precise. All things we want our customers to associate with us when they're looking to transact in the fast moving foreign exchange market.
Some ideas for an icon could be two arrows, converging spheres, a globe, a globe with an arrow around it, arrows forming an X or maybe a subtle AF that also incorporate some of these other elements. We have seen a TON of logos that are simply a stylized AF and we have many good options for that so we would like to see some fresh new ideas for the icon. The icon should be minimalist though. Don't just take a globe and wrap an arrow around it. That has been done many times before and is old. It'll be that simple creative idea that will take the win.
The logo should look good both as black and white and also on a multitude of background colours. If you go with an icon it should also look good with the icon stacked on top of our name and also beside it. We like the use of negative space in logos, though please don't let this limit you.
The logo should't reflect candlestick charts like this: http://www.dailyfx.com/design/fxcm/img/charts/chart-netdania.png Our service isn't meant for spec trading, but more helping customers to more easily convert their funds from one currency to another.
