TrustyGate is an online software platform for growing businesses to implement and operate effective cyber security.
Trust is the benefit and feeling we want customers to gain by using our software platform. (perhaps show it in blue or green)
Gate subtly refers to our focus on (cyber) security as a means of achieving trust for our customers. (perhaps show it in blue, black or grey)
We want the focus of the TrustyGate logo to be on trust, positivity, confidence and showing the path ahead.
We do not want the focus of the logo to be on security, locks, computers etc (although subtle references to technology are okay).
An idea is to have the logo look like a gate opening onto a pathway beyond but the logo should use flat design (no shadows etc).
You could also play on the hidden theme of "rusty gate" and draw out a traditional strong reliable farm gate motif to emphasise resilience.
Please don't incorporate the "T" for Trusty and "G" for Gate into the logo, it's unnecessary. Focus on a clean and simple logo.
