I need this logo to use in a variety of places online and in some printed advertisements to draw attention to the online courses I am selling. The primary audience for this graphic would be parents and their teens who are interested in technology classes that teach technology and cybersecurity knowledge and skills. The classes are an alternative and/or a compliment to coding classes. I need an eye catching graphic (eye catching to teens and their moms in particular) that helps us convey the message that I offer classes like this.
You do not have to use the word "STEM". I like seeing variants of the logo without the word STEM because I have not decided if I want to include the word int he logo.
I will use the logo to help point out that the majority of technology jobs do not require coding skills and many other areas of IT and cybersecurity can actually pay better with no requirement for coding knowledge or skills. For instance, the work in the specific area of graphics design can be performed without using any programming (coding) skills. Yes, the web designer/developer who embeds the graphic into the a site might require some coding skills, but a graphics designer may not ever learn to code. The same goes for network engineers, cybersecurity professionals, system administrators, project managers, data analysts, etc, etc.
On the design:
The limits of "my" creative thoughts see a possible hammerhead or fist in the shape of a flaming brick wall (firewall) about to come down on a bug covered in 1s and 0s. The use of a spy type character that is trying to get into a computer network or system might be something to consider. These thoughts are not a requirement to consider, but just that was in my head. I need this graphic to appeal to a teen and possibly their mom though, not me. ;-)
About the Attache IMAGE:
This image is a screen shot of someone else's logo that got a lot of attention from the same audience I am targeting. THIS IS NOT MY IMAGE and none of it can be reused for my project. I am simply sharing it as an example of something that appeals to the audience I am targeting.
