As a note if you are going to use an abstract marijuana leaf, please remember that it has 7 leaf points and not 5.
They do not want to have any logos that have a lock or a shield to indicate security. Instead, they would like to see more of an abstract graphic or simple graphic mark. Ideally the word mark and graphic would be able to stand on their own as well as together. Subtle use of a leaf is okay.
No deep earth tones for the color. Needs to be modern, clean and professional. As a note they will also offer some of these security services to others not in the marijuana industry so it may not make sense to use a pot leaf in the logo because we don't want to segment others.
The logo, or at least a version of it, must be able to be embroidered on polo style, blended cotton/poly, shirts. So no drop shadows or complicated graphical imagery.
For the final approved product, we require 300 dpi vectored files in illustrator format as well as an exported eps, ideally full color and single. Thanks! :)
