We are looking for a contemporary spin on our new logo - some kind of icon to include next to the word mark. We have traditionally used an S&R for the logo, however, this is dated and everyone seems to be using the same thing. A modern, fresh approach to an established, well-respected brand is what we are looking for. We would still be open to an S+R icon, but again, something fresh and modern that would translate well to t-shirts/hats, etc.
An icon to use with the word mark (to include company name and our slogan, "Designed for Safety. Built to Last.") is what we are looking for that can stand on its own and have meaning.
Other notes: In our industry, there are a lot of themes in threes - 3-phase conductor, 3 main business areas we are involved in (transmission, distribution and telecom), etc. that may be helpful when designing the icon portion.
Requirements: We would like to have several versions created (with no background):
1. Icon only
2. Icon with company name and tagline
3. Icon with company name
4. Company name and tagline
5. Company name only
Then we would need negatives of all of them (on black background)
