We really don't want derricks or oil to be the main part of any logo. However if it's intelligently and discreetly a part of the logo then maybe that would work (maybe).
Colour-wise, anything but blue (I think) and we do like grey or black with the brown or gold we've seen on a couple of submissions but please submit other colour-schemes too.
On the font, the all-capital versions are drawing our eyes the most and the bolder ones are being favoured but again please do try whatever you think is best and we'll keep giving feedback as and when.
Most people have gone along the bear route and this is working quite well. However please note that in Kurdistan we don't have any polar bears. Also, a straight picture of a bear is something we could have done ourselves so please do get creative.
We like simple yet clever, the bear inside the SB (number 11) is an example but please let's not have 100 entries all along the same lines.
On one of the logos we had a sky scape going on but if anything like that is to be included (and it's a big if) then please let's make sure it's relevant to Kurdistan (Iraq) and not back home.
Original Text follows:
The main logo should include the name StoneBear. However, we also want the words Energy Services (i.e. StoneBear Energy Services) to be added to the final logo and we may change this descriptor to indicate other services that we will offer at a later date via StoneBear.
