How Frank Paterra started their logo design journey

Company name

DigitalScirocco

Overview

Founded in June of 2009, our objective is bring digital content to websites; make it easy for domain owners to find and acquire content, make it possible for content creators to offer and make money on their content, and empower users to shape their online experience by reacting to their interests.

We are a marketplace, think stock market or local fresh produce market where sellers offer their products. Buyers and sellers in our world are domain owners looking for content and content producers looking for traffic. Both groups have objectives for the content or traffic they want to acquire, they need it to generate loyalty, generate transactions, engage users, earn money on a page, etc. They pick it.

We are the broker in this marketplace. The buyer of content shows up to buy content that, for example, causes repeat visits from each user. They are a website that focuses on, for example, insurance needs. They tell us these objectives, maybe some keywords, how much they want to pay, and we find the content that fits their needs. But wait, there's more! We find the content, we cause the transaction to be executed (buyer pays, seller gets money) and we place the content on their site automatically. Next we monitor the performance of that content against the buyer and seller's stated objectives and optimize by either switching or adding content as it make sense.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are a business to business company. The target audiences for us are website owners, big and small, and content providers, both those who create their own content and those who aggregate content to sell. On the domain side, think big companies with entertainment or information sites, espn, motley fool, edmonds automotive. Think smaller companies such as wiki sites and smaller information sites such as payscale.com, wetpaint.

On the content side think of both large and small providers of any kind of content (video, text, social network, applications, etc). Motley fool comes to mind again, reuters, discover channel, etc. Again, think big as well as small.

Requirements

Professional design that is easy to recognize and easy to reproduce. We want to use it for website, presentations, business cards, you name it. Not too many colors and simple is better than complex. Its a marketplace so think about marketplaces. No photos but simple illustrations are always good.

Lastly, the name is not fixed, it could change. If you have ideas to suggest on this, feel free! The important thing is that the logo represent the idea much more than the name. The name will have to work in, no doubt, but the less connectivity the better.

Have at it!
