Contrasting colours could be white, grey and/or black tones.Our Ideas and Additional Information:Our Ideas and additional information: Fliks has two divisions: “Fliks GmbH” in Germany, “GmbH meaning the kind of legal entity of our company in Germany. In South Africa, its “Fliks Media (Pty) Ltd.” Fliks is a company that has very few customers and whose projects do mostly have their own branding/logo. Therefore, the fliks logo represents our company itself alone. The logo will appear on the web mostly on contact information pages, offline on businesscards and letters. Therefore it should be readable in small sizes, too. “Fliks” is a made up word resembling the german words “flink” or “fix”, wich associates to “quick”, “alert”, “fast”. Therefore the logo should represent a dynamic, fast acting, leading company in a rapidly developing IT/mediabased business field, competence as well als open-mindedness. Internally, it also should stand for our unity/community/alliance. Our core competences are SEO, Community Management, Web2.0, PHP/MySQL. We’re hosting optimized, high traffic websites like the redirector service anonym.to as well as specialist (news)sites like the german mac magazine macnotes.de. As recognized by the company names, we also operate international the non-virtual way in germany as well as in south africa. Finally, we’re in the internet business for more than 10 years now, therefore we don’t want to be associated with new startups from the web2.0-boom. Ideas and recent logos: We always used “brackets” or symbols reminding brackets in our recent logos, symbolizing internal unity.
