VolunteerBIG is a new internet startup making it easier for nonprofits and volunteers to have a greater impact in their communities. VolunteerBIG is creating a localized, cause based social network that makes it easier for volunteers to get involved in their community and be recognized for their work. You can also share a profile of your involvement, including photos, videos and blog posts.
VolunteerBIG has forged partnerships with celebrities, athletes and media and upon launch, will drive community involvement and make it easy for community members to see what's really going on around them and to get their friends and families involved in real world action.
The audience is socially responsible individuals and employees of web-savvy nonprofit organizations. This wide-ranging audience respects a balance between clean, cutting edge and professional.
This is the LinkedIn of one's civic identity, so the audience will identify themselves by their interaction with the site and will express this side of their personality with us. Therefore, logo must be something that individuals would proudly wear on a t-shirt, plaster to their car or set as a desktop background to inspire themselves and others.
We need a logo that exemplifies the company plus a business card with the logo on it.
Use as much artistic license and creativity as you can channel to design this corporate identity. Explore ideas and concepts, and we will provide plenty of feedback to guide submissions to success.

"VolunteerBIG" should be the only text. You can split up the words
Volunteer and BIG if needed.
1. Logo plus inspiring icon, representative of brand.
2. Logo is contained within, or is the icon. One such example is the word "Volunteer" on top of the word "BIG", in a 3d, vectorized fashion- such that it looks like it's on top of a cliff face, triumphant.
-Professional but NOT formal

-Unique, identifiable at all scales and memorable

(Note: Do not start card until you have received feedback on logo)
-Stick with the aesthetic themes of the logo (see above)
-Needs to be in a format that can be produced on a standard size business card.
-Must include logo
