Simple like Apple
I like clean lines and simple designs (such as Google, LEGO, Apple). Possible ideas: - treasure chest depicted which is overflowing with LEGO bricks and has the company name written on the front of the chest. - a small island with a single palm tree and a tattered pirate flag stuck into the ground next to a treasure chest with the company name on the flag. Should be able to be recognized in small format, so nothing too detailed.
Enhance the Y Axis
"On CSI they could blow up and enhance a security camera clip, so I need you to do that to our team picture you can find on our website and make a kit cover."
No Cleanup Necessary
"We are not paying you to make a clean vectorized version of the logo since we sent you a nice image earlier. (the image is a cell phone pic of an embroidered logo)
