Need logo graphic for website, will pay (redux)

Question

Marshalus    50

I tried this back in September, but being a big stupid I posted the name of the company before I registered the domain names. Not making that mistake this time :)

I'm currently in the process of setting up my own hosting company. We're at the stage now where we want to get our website designed and our logo setup so we can start getting promotional materials setup.

Title: HostFalcon

Slogan: Set your sites higher

Website: http://www.hostfalcon.com

What we want: It has already been decided that the layout of the website is going to be XHTML 1.0 Strict/Trans, very clean and crisp, with limited colors and graphics.

What ever logo is used will set the tone for the rest of the website in terms of color and theme. We'd like a logo that is more horizontal than vertical as this is what our preliminary layout design calls for.

Ideally the logo would look something like- IMAGE HostFalcon -clean and simple. Any text used should be a sans-serif font.

Basic Logo Elements: Looking for something with a falcon/bird of prey with a server, but be creative. Possibly integrated into a computer or networking, or displayed on a computer screen, or something to that effect. The background should be white/light gray/light colored.

Uses: This logo will be used on our website, on business cards, on flyers, possible advertisements both online and print.

Format Requirements: Vector/Photoshop importable.

I need to talk to some my partners, but the budget for this should be around $35-50, possible more if they feel the logo is worthy. Exclusive use must be provided to us by the author.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, and feel free to try out different ideas beyond what I have explained. If we like a different idea more than we may change direction in our design to fit your logo. Throw out as many ideas as you want, there is no real deadline.

Have fun!

Well I have one design left in my bag but I must say it was done as almost a joke. Still I'll post it as I have nothing else to do.

All vector (it would look a hell of a lot better if I rendered it in Lightwave)

To prove my point, a quick render in Lightwave:

though my opinion doesn't matter, i think this has potential if it wasn't so cluttered and the "F" looking like a beak could be expanded upon :p i'm just a goof for round things i guess

I had an original comment here, but I chose to remove it. After realising the above post, I saw no need for it to be there. What I will say though, is that my work was original, and was not influenced in any way by something that happens to look very familiar to it. Fan of Football...Yes...Fan of AMERICAN FOOTBALL, Hell No. But W/e doesn't matter anymore.

FIN

It's great how so many people are missing out on the pun, it's "set your sites higher", not "set your sights higher". Sites... hosting company... get it? :p

I'm going to use both. Long's on the website, and then parts of n00dles on some offline promotional materials. :)
