I am a passionate software developer on a tight budget for this start-up, but I only need a simple logo. My start-up is working on innovative band marketing tools that will leverage the great tools currently available on the internet. Besides tools we will also be providing analytics and important statistics.
I want to give you an idea for designs I like. Since my company is in music marketing, I expect the designs to come out much different than the logos I will list but it's always helpful to know some logos I like....right? The list is below (in no particular order):
http://twitterfeed.com/ (one of my favorite logos)
http://www.xobni.com/mobile (i like how they have a little avatar to go along with their "name logo")
Feel free to post low fidelity mocks before designing the entire thing if that works better for you (I am not a designer so I don't know if it makes sense to do this). Also feel free to ask me if I like a logo on a certain website that represents the feel you would like to design. I am very excited about this and VERY available.
The target audience is internet savvy musicians and bands.
I need a logo as a vector file. All used images most be royalty free for business use. If there are extra costs involved for buying any royalty free images you've used, please state so upon submission!
I want the logo to read in a small size (around 75x25) because I have to put it on a widget. This is not required if you have something that I REALLY like, but I prefer it.
The first impression...
-make viewer feel like they can trust us
-we will save them time/money
Some visual elements you could use are musical notes, or a G-clef looks a lot like an ampersand so my current logo uses that, but I don't like my current logo too much. You can view my current logo here:
Feel free to use whatever colors you want in the logo design. The splash page is only temporary. Although, after you design the logo the way you want, it would be great to get a version that has the colors of the splash page (it doesn't have to look very good, just match for the time being because i will design the splash page around the logo colors in the near future).
Feel free to use the tag line "Forgetful fans love us". However, I need to be able to edit this text using photoshop.
That's it. Have fun! And feel free to ask any questions. I will respond quickly and will comment on all submissions.
