For the final design I really wanted to continue with the idea of "Connecting" and this design has both the 2 "N's" connected as well as the "VA" in the back. I feel that this says what it needs to say without really saying it. It is a simple design, but I feel that it would fit the brand/organization really well.
In the refine phase I began steering away from the technology within the logo and started to play off of the "connect" idea. I think a few of these have a lot of potential, and I cannot wait to see the final logo once I am done!!
Currently ConnectVA has a simple logo which contains a few arrows, the 2 "N's" are connected and the "VA" is in a message bubble. When generated the new logos I was trying to focus on "connection" as well as the utilization of the internet into my design. I thought about electronics, I played around with the letters to see what else they resembled and tried to combine those into a new idea. I think I have a great start for new possibilities.
