Aiuda is meant to help visitors discover recommended local businesses (find help) and review those they frequent (offer help). The world "Aiuda" should be the main focus of the logo.
We are looking for a logo that is:
1. Friendly and Inviting (after all, we are a web 2.0 style community!)
2. "Trustworthy" (we are a medium for providing honest, current information)
3. Professional (think Metromix.com, Yelp.com, Citysearch)
4. Bright (what comes to mind when you think about the diversity and color of Latin America
5. The logo should be simple but not simplistic - we want a clean look
6. Similar to how the Facebook "F" has been contrived from their logo, we would like the A in Aiuda to be unique so that we can use it for icon/advertising purposes
Other design notes: be creative! We are open to logos in all caps, partial caps, no caps, different colors and styles. Based on this design, we will launch other design projects using a compatible color scheme and offer more work to the winning designer
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Any others you recommend as our designer and which could be used for all mediums - web, print, t-shirts, marketing materials, etc.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo, or anything else that would otherwise cause copyright issues.
