Company or website name
Do you want any slogans or taglines on your logo?
www.automattic.com, www.flowtown.com (Love the font), www.rapleaf.com, www.mashery.com, http://www.freshview.com/.. this site has a range of logos/usage items that we like http://www.new-startups.com/.. (*Except the first one).
Service or product provided:
We are a new Start-Up business that is a number of people focused at developing a range of very cool applications within the Social/SME market. We have a range of commercial and open-source products> Thought we would try this service for fun!
We have target a range - Social = all , Other Products = SME (*However we want to utilise a very modern and cool brand as the targeted SME vertical is quite boring... Thus a FRESH approach)
What should come to a customers mind when they see the logo:
We want people to see COOL, FUN, inspirational.. E.g. www.automattic.com.. nice blend of cool and slick. It should provide a sense of 'I want to work with these people because they are cool/grungy' and they provide great software products thatare fun
What should not be in the design:
Happy to leave this to the imagination of the designers.. However, perhaps nothing TOO big.. again, Web2.0 style and funkyness...
How will the logo be the used:
Always be used for the website, T-Shirts, other marketing material.. etc..
The design should have the following:
Looking for an Icon and Writing within a Web2.0 type approach - again focused at a very cool/slick Web2.0 type logo... Our preference would be an illustration to the left of the company name... However, happy to review other options.
