Network is a series of indoor underground techno parties.
The goal was to make something simple and recognizable and to capture the underground minimalist feel of Berlinesque techno parties.
Makes me think of a room plan drawing, with the N being a door swing icon. Maybe the N could form some steps leading underground?
I kinda like simplicity of this logo- I wonder if you could match both stems of the N - give both top and bottom that angle you have, and where the square meets on the right.
I think you will still need a word mark as well for some applications. I'm not a huge fan of the other version you uploaded, but if you did something simple that related back to this (using the angled N to tie them together) I think that could be a win, win.
