Comments for entry # 176705
After reflecting more on all of the designs we think this one does a great job at communicating most of the key concepts. We do think there is a little room for improvement. Perhaps the head of the key could be some simple globe representation? We thank you so much for the numerous designs you have submitted.
Sorry for any confusion. The model is that students will have access to material/lessons from teachers all over the world. Initially these lessons will be very tied to curriculum. For example, as student needing help with Calculus can view lessons from a multitude of expert Calculus teachers. The teachers are part of the equation as they will be supplying the lessons. It is somewhat similar to this site, Hatchwise, in that as a Contest Holder the site seems that it is for me to get a good design, whereas for you it seems like a good way to use your skills and make some money. Depending on the audience it will have very different meanings. The students and teachers will have very different ideas and uses for the site. My comment about not hamstringing it to education was something I through in there as we were thinking that ultimately this site could go beyond education as people are looking for help from experts (not just students from teachers). We are however catering towards education in the beginning. Sorry for any confusion my comment made. Sometimes saying too much is a problem for me :-0. As you can see the education related designs have been the highest rated. Please let me know if you have any other questions, and sorry for any confusion.
The key is a traditional -- and universally recognized -- symbol of education. Others are the torch and the tree. RE: "we do not want to hamstring our site into being education" So far everything you've talked about in your brief and in your comments has been about students and teachers. Your site/business is called "The Study Help Site" which implies its for students, education, help with studies. If that's not accurate -- or your business idea is morphing into a different model -- then you've sent a lot of people down the wrong road here.
I talked with my partner and we do like t the concept. It would be great if we could find another way to represent the access to many. It is a tough thing to convey, but will really make all the difference in the logo. We are a little worried about the mortar board as we do not want to hamstring our site into being education as it has a potential of being a place where people could access any kind of expert. I good way to think of it is that we allow people to access knowledge from many experts (who will be teachers in the beginning). In turn these experts can have a broad audience that they would not normally get. I hope this helps. We really do appreciate your efforts, you have been the most consistent at going after the access to many concept. Keep the designs coming.
We appreciate the simplicity of this design and the concept of access to many which is the main premise of our site. I am not sure about the key concept, but that is helping with the access idea. Let me confer with my partner and post some more comments on this later. We also posted some more comments about the contest, hopefully sparking some more ideas.
