This is a new Logo Design concept that I am working at work. It is for a company in West Palm Beach. The logo needed to allow for animation later and also work as a static logo. I began the process of creating this by making sure it looked good as a solid 1 color logo. Then I added the gradients. You can have a nice looking logo for your corporate identity, full of filters and gradients but if it does not work as a single color or at least a 2 color logo then you can run into trouble in the future. This is still a work in progress.
