About raven, is already "taken":

Some "sneaky peaks" for same named (but non related sites) -- just to see
what others came up with:

And my personal fav:

Their stylised "M" made out of two triangles is just great.

And then, as I also like abstract things a bit more than explicit drawings
representing explicit stuff/beings,
I figured what might represent visually Maven
(I admit, was inspired with MavenBerlin intersecting triangles, as there,
it reflects the intersection of multidisciplinary creativity):
a mountain(s), a twin peak ("M"), you have to climb..... (and everyone
finish their story, mountain might be "effort", "knowledge", "sweat" or
whatever :D )

Something like these

And finally, just a quick quick silly draft of logos, two versions.

First, is obviously what maven is <today/> :D

Second is the one with stylized peaks, variations on "M as mountain" idea:D
