What are the deliverables?

- Logo + Name
- Logo alone

I would prefer a vector format like SVG so we can scale the logo as we 
see fit.
Producing reasonably sized bitmaps from the SVG should be easy for us to 

Ideally we would also get a .ico file, such small instances may need 
manual refinement to show up nicely.
We can also handle this ourselves from a SVG if it's unpractical to ask 
for it.

If we want to revamp the website according to the future logo we'll need 
to extract a color scheme from it.
If the selected logo only has plain colors it will be easy, if it has 
gradients or any other texture then we may want to ask the designer to 
provide a selected color scheme that make sense with the logo.
Again, we could also handle this ourselves if it's unpractical to ask 
for it.

Thank you Niclas for pushing this forward.
I can't wait to see the proposals!
