No locks. No keys. Yes gears. Yes motion.
No image above/on top of the word. Only the word is the logo. Image can go to the left, but ideally the C itself is stylized enough (with an abstract M embedded) that it can be used as an icon on its own.
We want the gears in the name of the logo itself. We would like the C to have gears on it (and maybe the M as well, and other letters can be stylized too). The C should be an icon we can break out and use on its own in other collateral.
Our brand values are (1) continuous / movement, (2) concealment / obfuscation / secrecy and (3) security / strength.
Too much red in the samples. Want multiple shades of grey and just hints of red, not half red and half grey.
I really like the samples I've seen where the C and M are coupled -- but don't love the logo having an icon on top of it. We want CryptoMove itself to be the logo, and then we can pull out the C coupled with an M as an icon/character that appears in the corner of sales collateral, etc.
Maybe put a CM coupled together on the left of the logo, but NOT on top please. Better if the C (first letter) just incorporates an M coupled into it in an abstract way as well as gears/motion.
Also the C and M in CryptoMove should be capitalized. Want it to be like animated/cell-design -- think star wars cartoon + matrix + gear title scene in GoldenEye. Serious but somewhat cartoony /animated. Ominous/secure. Would like thicker letters and gears coming off the letters themselves - and having a sense of motion to the whole thing.
Also going to make an animated video showing data being broken apart and moved around a distributed network -- in that video the CryptoMove logo will be the data, and we will literally break the CryptoMove logo apart and have it fly around...
Hopefully this is making sense...
