Important note: Ingenieurbüro means „ engineering Office“. It is Part of the Company name and a corporate Form/legal form at the same time. Because of the conditions of this corporate/legal Form and the fact that it's a freelance work, I am forced to use my real name in the Company name. Now, there are thousands of engineering offices in germany named „Ingenieurbüro [name] [lastname]“. So i think the initials „ib“ are too replaceable to use it alone in the logo. Thank you for considering this note.
because most of you speak english, i'll try to write down my wishes and ideas for the logo in english. Hope you can understand what i'm trying to say ;-)
First of all: If you want to try out the initials, please use "ib" for Ingenieurbüro", thats the comman appreviation in german, or "ibcm" oder "IBCM", but always the 2 or 4 characters.
In my business, i offer high quality programming services for building automaton. In modern buildings you can control the lights, the blinds, the heating, cooling, window- and door opening and very much more cool technical things :-)
So i'm kind of a nerd for buildings. I'm highly educated and trained in programming techniques languages and that is one of the main differences between me and my competitors.
I can offer really cool and intelligent smarthome-programmings, indivdually programmed for each customer and each house.
For a building, that should last at leas 20-30 years, its very important to use high-quality electronic components and there are some really good systems out there, but the most advertised products out there, are low-level consumer products, which are meant to last only some years... Then its no more hip or even broken. These cheap products are often adverised with "wifi"-signal symbols, but that makes a house unsafe und weak against hackers. So for me a wifi signal stands more for low-level, than for high-level quality. I also use wifi, but for a really high quality smarthome, wifi is only a means for purpose , so it shouldnt be in the first focus please.
So of course you can use the wifi-signal in the logos, but please not in the middle/focus. That would be the wrong direction, for what i want to say to customers.
My customers are mostly electricians, all kind of electric companys, private customers with smarthomes or who want to build one.
My projects can be: Appartments, 1-family houses, appartment buildings, office buildings, schools, civil buildings, airports, so potentially every building with "smart" components.
Now here are some headwords for my company, which i would like to convey:
- high quality progamming
- high-level standard
- smart automations
- connecting different systems
I would love to have a logo, thats higly recognizable, also in a small version, so please not too many details. I like colored surfaces, not too many single or parallel lines, so that you can scale it good.
You also can invent a new design, i mean i would also take the apple logo even though my company has nothing to do with apples (so do the apple company).
I need the logo for the business cards (very important),
the invoices and offers,
the comany car (black skoda octavia combi)
the website (good and nice to have, but i get my customers through other ways)
stickers with will be positioned in switchboxes (like "IBCM made this programming")
Ich biete Programmier-Dienstleistungen im Bereich Gebäudeautomation/Smarthome an. D.h. Ich programmiere/optimiere/nehme in Betrieb /vernetze alle Arten von steuerbaren Geräten im Gebäude, wie z.B. Beleuchtung, Jalousien, Heizung, Lüftung, Klima, Elektroauto, Energie-/Wärmespeicher usw.
Dabei unterscheide ich mich von anderen Systemintegratoren (Techniker oder Elektriker) durch eine fundiertere Ausbildung, insbesondere in Bezug auf die Programmierung. Deshalb kann ich die Möglichkeiten der Technik voll ausreizen und z.B. durch ausgeklügelte Automatikprogramme dem Endnutzer (= zb Bewohner) ein modernes und futuristisches Wohngefühl vermitteln. Meine Kunden sind aber meistens Elektrofirmen, bei denen ich dann als Subunternehmer arbeite. Ich arbeite nur national und hauptsächlich um München und Umgebung.
