Our Company is AdvertisingNow, LLC. We are a new media start up firm in the Washington DC Metro area. My partners and I are developing a city guide/portal for Bethesda, Maryland. We consider our firm to be innovative, creative and cutting edge.
Our target audience are the people who live, work, or visit Bethesda, Maryland. We would like a local feel. Bethesda, has a "downtown" area which has many offices, stores, restaurants and clubs. Bethesda also is home to over 60,000 people.
We want our logo to say Bethesda Maryland in a creative and simple way. We also want the logo to represent new media - replacing print media/newspapers. Please do research to discover what Bethesda is about and all it has to offer.
I have uploaded the colors we like...red - blue - more dominant of the colors shown...but we are open to ideas using those colors....don't need them all - those are colors we like....Black can be in it as well of course.
We do not want a character or cartoon...we may be open to an icon along with text (but not sure if it is appropriate). We need "Bethesda.com" as the main feature of the logo. There are other city sites you may want to look at for logo ideas. We like Cleveland.com and Richmond.com - we know - very different logos, but they are well designed... Other logo examples we like (different business niches though) can be found at mikemann.com.
