Oh, dark grey might work nicely! Making the symbol a little bigger might help too. You could also try moving the symbol to the left of the text. All in all, it would be nice if the symbol was more prominent.
Those engraved letters are difficut to reproduce in some formats, and different qualities, I would make a simplier font for possible uses like printing, etc. One option more compact is including the words inside the rounded logo
Im gonna be the guy to give a honest opinion , i think it looks alright but to me it kinda looks like you just wrote some text and added "bevel" to it it using photoshop default styles.... i think it could be improved. Again this is my opinion
classic and simple, I guess you need to use background color according to the website background and adjust that time according to your need. Can't say any fix color for it other than your matching requirement. thanks happy webbing.
Actually, I think it looks excellent with the caveat that the shadowing in your first linked picture really adds quality and professionalism. You want simplicity, particularly for tech work where simplicity of design is desired, the font works really well with the caps, and the shadowing shows more thought and quality behind the simplicity. The fact that the shadowing is silver is a nice touch, as it subtly refers to technology and makes me feel slightly nostalgic for the 90s grey machines and the insides of pc components. It does also look excellent on white but you lose the shadowing in the above examples, which are less striking by comparison.
Customers don't want fuss, they want something clear, professional, relevant to the IT industry and not an obvious copy-paste bodge job. Your logo fulfils those requirements.
