I am a small business owner (just myself right now). I do security assessments and consulting. I specialize in the utility and government sector. I recently had someone help me redo my website (http://www.miltonsecurity.com) and I have found that the logo I am attempting to use looks lame.
I chose the single \"gear\" on an orange background as the colow orange I thought would look neat in a logo, and the gear represents to me the essence of a perfect working system. But if there is a single chip in a cog, or a missing cog, then the systems operates very poorly, or stops operating. This I thought would represent the systems of my customers, with the cogs representing particular components (ie - stability, security, compliance, etc)
OK, I dont know if I am blabbing too much here or not, so someone tell me to shut up if I am.
So, I would like the logo to be redesigned, and not to be a 3d (like it is now, and its at an angle) And I am willing to pay the winner of the competition $200. You can use the name, or not, in the logo, and you can add more gears/cogs, etc. or not.
