How miked333 started their logo design journey

Company name

Small Business Web Tools

Overview

I'm currently an accountant trying to break free from my boring J-O-B. This podcast will help me market my services as a web strategy consultant and allow me to do the type of work that I truly enjoy. I have a passion for technology and learning about the latest online tools and enjoy teaching others how to use them. I like the idea of helping small businesses "level the playing field" by competing online.

The podcast will profile online tools and show business owners how to use them (an episode featuring 99 Designs is in the works!)

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

I'm hoping to reach very small businesses, from one-person entrepreneurs up to 10 or 20 employees, max. The type of person that is good at what they do but may not be a computer guru. They realize that they need to do something to remain competitive and are looking for info and/or help.

I don't want to appear too fancy or too high-tech. I want these business owners to feel that I am one of them (because I am!)

Requirements

I am looking for a logo that will become my brand identity. The podcast is called Small Business Web Tools and the website is not live yet.

The logo will appear on the website. It also needs to be something that I can use as iTunes album art, so it needs to look good and remain legible at 600x600 (it needs big, bold lettering).

I would LOVE IT if the design consisted of big, bold letters plus some sort of graphic element that could possibly be used on its own. Something with a distinctive look that could help identify the brand all on its own. So if someone saw just that graphic they might recognize it as belonging to the Small Business Web Tools brand. Maybe something like a wrench, computer mouse, or just some abstract symbol that "feels right".

I think it might look nice if the words "Small Business" were one color and "Web Tools" were a second color. One idea would be to string the words all together, with the first letter of each word larger than the others, like in a URL. Another idea is to have the first 2 words on top on the other 2 with the graphic on the left.

Colors: blue and yellow, blue and green, yellow and green - or anything that you think will look better! I am not much of a designer and am relying on you guys!

Please don't use any clip art or stock photos.

I will need a high quality PNG and a layered PSD file.

Any questions, let me know!
