    Ok folks,
    need help here. I need a slogan for our company. You can visit our site at www.generalcybernetics.com/apple We are sponsors of Macrumors, but I don't like the current logo. After much discussion, I have decided to let you suggest them, and I will pick the best one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your new logo should be of a stick guy (General Cyber Man) urinating on your competitors. That's how I'd do it. You know what they say, any press is good press. You could have a different competitor for each banner ad. One for the dog from Smalldog, one for the Apple store (whatever their mascot is)... Now, getting sued, that would be the tough part, but if you were to make the competitors sufficiently vague, I don't think you'd have any problems.

    For the logo you should run with the cybernetics part of name. Maybe an assimilated dog-cow. The dog-cow always brings a smile to an Apple veteran's face ;)

    Oh, you said you didn't care for the current logo in your post. Must have been a typo.

    I'll try and think up a slogan, can it be strange? :D

    General Cybernetics: Get off your ass and buy some cool toys

    Juicy Macs from Apple cracks.

    ... the other fruit store.

    Selling different!

    Apple recipies to match your needs.


    Sorry, just a cheap try by someone who has German as 1st language! :)

    Well...

    ...I think the current slogan (at least the one on the companies main page) is ok...I describes what the company does...

    "Helping technology help your business"

    That's not bad. Not great...no "wow" factor, but you don't want to oversell the company, either.

    The logo, on the otherhand, sucks...I mean I know what it's supposed to be a G and C and all...but it really doesn't convey the purpose of the company...It's just there...

    …although if you look at it sideways it does kinda look like a hand on top of an old ADB mouse…

    I would say go for something more current...a thicker black block stlye "C" to symbolize the cybernetics aspect and a softer, rounder green colored "G" with an arrow coming out of the top ("maximizing productivity")...link or overlap them in some way...

    Helping people think different is very nice. It is a nice play off the apple slogan.

    The only idea I came up with, late albiet, is "thinking different about apple prices." Something to convey that GC aggressively prices apple products and/or offers more bang for the buck.

    Anyway, I like the new logo/slogan.
