Company or website name
Do you want any slogans or taglines on your logo?
www.marinastamos.com (current. I want something more edgy, more "tv news")
Service or product provided:
I provide news & views for Philadelphians who are interested in schools, community, social justice, literacy issues, digital divide. ALso, it's just a place to dish about cultural stuff too (like reviews of restaurants, tv programs, etc).
Adults 25-50 who watch the news, read the papers, are activists for social justice, especially around literacy, and who tackle topics like discrimination and "white privilege in the schools," immigrants issues, improving schools.
What should come to a customers mind when they see the logo:
This is an established, trustworthy, alternative news outlet for all types of views, including from non-mainstream people who want their thoughts to be heard. (A bit like Huffington Post...but less mainstream).
What should not be in the design:
No graphics. Just words.
How will the logo be the used:
Primarily in the website header. (Also in letterhead.)
The design should have the following:
Words in distintive font. Black (W/ some red maybe). Logo & tagline to fit in a 980px by 130px header for website. Clean & "newsy." What is there now is stale/old looking. (I don't need my face on header. Logo/tagline should be able to stand alone.)
