The Solution |
A young Thin Client software solution firm, GraphOn wanted to modernize their logo identity and had a few requirements: the logo needed to be recognizable at small sizes (the current logo featured thin arms in orbit around a planet); convey green technology (cloud delivered software requiring no packaging or delivery); an iconic logo was desired. Starting with a napkin sketch of an intertwined word GO, the original sketch resembled an arrow forming an orbit around the Earth. The letter G was drawn in such a way to look like an arrow beginning its orbit around the Earth (Letter “O”) so as to mean that GraphOn’s software has a global reach. Underneath the “GO” symbol was a stylized scribble to symbolize Earth (green technology connotation).
After over a hundred pen and ink “GO” sketches, a separate GO and “Earth” was selected to be composited. Color selected: Yellow Arrow “G” to symbolized a friendly solution; A Blue Earth “O” to symbolized the small blue planet; The green scribble to remind customers of the green software solution.
