About Purple Bulldog:
Purple Bulldog is a new media company...We do a wide variety of things on the net for both clients, but primarily ourselves...We do quite a bit of search engine marketing, ppc stuff, affiliate stuff etc...We also do some search engine consultation, landing page optimization, etc...We basically just build web apps and try to figure out ways to make money off of it and help others do the same...Im sure you get the idea...

We are a small company with a fun, hardworking, easygoing culture...NOT tight and stiff...We are all pretty young too... Keep that in mind with the design...

Usage:
The logo will be used on a website and in print...Also on T-shirts and other promo stuff...It will be need to look good across all of these mediums..It will be really important that the logo scales well...That means it looks good both small and big...

Present info in any way you want...

Colors:
I want colors that are fun and give off a cool vibe, but nothing over the top...Be subtle, but pack a punch at the same time...

The only real requirement for color is that you use a mild/dark purple...Other than that, go for it...Be creative...I like blues, greens, gray, black, etc...

Dont OVERDO the purple either...Include it, but dont overdo it...

Style:
Something BOLD, modern, contemporary, fun, etc...Something that looks the part of a new age internet publishing/marketing company...I like the whole web 2.0 thing, but DONT overdo that crap...The person who wins will understand what I am talking about here... I like reflections if not overdone...

Ideas:
I WANT a small outline of a graphic of a bulldog or silhouette... Preferably a trace of my bulldog, but that is not required...I will publish photos shortly... PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE SOME STOCK GRAPHIC OF A BULLDOG...This will be one of the top 5 paying contests here at sitepoint... I am not paying for stock imagery...

This is where you can find some photos of my dog...You don't have to use them...Just there if you want to...ITS SUPER IMPORTANT THAT IF YOU USE THEM THE GRAPHICS MAINTAIN THEIR CRISPNESS...THEY SHOULD SCALE WELL...Also, please dont USE THE ACTUAL photo in the graphic...I don't want to be able to tell its my dog...Only use these photos to trace or outline or whatever...Dont use the actual image to create a realistic graphic...The graphic should be a drawing with pen tool or similar, etc...

Other than that, just modern simple fonts...Nothing with the serifs...Also, for the most part, I dont like curved text...

Here are some examples of work I like:

Please note...I WANT YOU TO BE CREATIVE...Look at these examples just to see what I like...You dont have to make something identical or even something that looks close...These are just to give you an idea of my tastes...
