(New Info): One of my partners just mentioned that a fortune cookie design would be really cool as well. I think it's a great idea.
Proverbs Technologies focuses on selling data storage products. The name 'Proverbs' came from that I, the owner, have a knack for embedding Chinese proverbs in my customer interactions and my customers love it. The design should ideally convey a combination of high-tech and ancient folksy wisdom.
We represent 3-4 major products: HP 3PAR, Pure Storage and SolidFire. The signature colors of these products are Yellow, Orange and Red (details in attached txt file). An optional 4th color (green) is also welcome if it help creating a more pleasing logo (Infinidat.com has the logo, as described in the additional description doc).
The preferences noted below is for guidance only, and please do not consider that a design has to be rigidly fit into the sample given:
The sample logo is one logo I liked doing a Google search on red/orange/yellow clipart: it is a cartoon-style Chinese Taichi diagram, which fits the 'folksy wisdom' idea of the company's name. The design should add the third color either by adding a third 'blade' or using the third color as the traditional 'eyes' of the Taichi diagram.
It would be best if there is a hint of letter 'P' (or multiple P's) in the logo. The sample Taichi logo has such a character.
Another idea would be for 3-4 letter P's forming some sort of propeller shape (similar to the BMW logo).
