Patrick,

The current logo has presented us with some challenges since we began this work together. Everything about the current logo communicates "old" and "irrelevant" in terms of your brand. 

As I was exploring the possibility of introducing some kind of icon into our new "look and feel,"  this is what I came up with:



Regarding colors, in order to incorporate that royal blue, we will need to look at a new color palette. Please see below... these are the colors I have pulled out of the glass. The bottom logo is using those colors, and the warm grey may help keep it from feeling like a box of crayons... I think. 

Additionally, we could change to footer of the site to the navy blue if Penny feels they grey is just too grey. Just a thought.
