This design contest is for two matching logo designs to represent two sides of our business, software development and website development.
Our company, "Cira Solutions" currently does software and website development under a single banner. The intention is to separate the website design & development side of our company into a new business "Cira Web Design" with its own website, but still have the two businesses complement each other.
The current logo is too complex and not very creative, and is in drastic need of a redesign into something fresh and modern. We would like to have a logo that is modern, creative and simple that could be used for both businesses.
Orange or blue would be preferred colours, with black and white or grey. Ideally the branding identity would be kept across both businesses, but possibly with one colour representing Cira Web Design (orange), and the other for Cira Solutions (blue).
Cira is an Italian word meaning "sun". So we are interested in incorporating a sun or star in the design, however we are also open to anything, so please go wild! We also feel that "less is more" and also interested in seeing how the business name by itself (i.e. word mark) could be used as the logo.
Current company logo available here: http://www.cirasolutions.com.au

Our intention is also to run a design contest for stationary design once a logo is finalised.
