We provide piracy protection services for individuals and companies who sell Wordpress theme ands plugins.
Our logo should be professional and mature but with a fresh, modern touch and a memorable motif to accompany the business name which is rendered in a clean, clear, modern font.
It should convey a clear sense of security, strength, trust and safety.
At the same time, we are also looking for something original.
We are familiar with all the common graphics and elements included in "security type" logos (e.g. trust shields etc…) and are looking for something which conveys the emotions we are after but with a little more originality and boldness.
EDIT (16/11/15) - People have been misreading this paragraph so make sure you read it carefully. We DO NOT want designs which include recycled security motifs such as trust shields. We want something which is more original but is also relevant to the work we do - i.e. patrolling the internet for Wordpress related online piracy.
EDIT (16/11/15) - I'd also like to take a moment to give you a little more guidance on the type of logo we're after.
The key is in the word "patrol". "WP" is important but the design concept lies in the word "patrol". Think about what this word means and the types of motifs which relate to it:
What type of people "patrol" - policeman, security guards, law enforcement, beat cops etc...
Think about the motifs which surround these different identities:
- Beat cop's hat
- Police siren
- Heavy duty boots for patrolling
- Big hand with the palm pointing directly forward to communicate "stop"
Note, these are JUST EXAMPLES. You should not treat this as an exhaustive list or reject ideas of your own which aren't included here.
Some of motifs I've listed above are good, some are not so good. Some will work in a logo, others won't. I'll leave this up to you, your creativity and imagination.
However, hopefully this will get you thinking.
Also, please don’t use the Wordpress logo any where in the design. That is trademarked.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
