The bulk of our work deals with water/wastewater treatment and water resources. We definitely want that communicated in the logo. We like the idea of a water drop, but are also open to other ideas like incorporating the wave into the 'tail' of the Q. I have uploaded a file (aqua sample.png) of a quick idea I sketched up. We like the font style and layout, but we would prefer to see a more complex water drop of some sort. I uploaded some sample logos of styles we like.
Feel free to try different things! We don't have our minds set on any specific design.
We are a forward thinking company using out of the box thinking and technologies. Each project is a one of a kind facility. We want to communicate that we are a solid, established company (20 years old) with a lot of experience, but have kept on the cutting edge of technologies.
A gear doesn't really represent what we do and would prefer you not use them in the logo.
We like logos that are more sophisticated and less "playful". We like bold, masculine and mature.
We don't want to look like a swimming pool company.
We like logos that are one dimensional, not 3d or bubbly. Some gradient is ok.
Good luck and feel free to message me with questions!
