Think corporate, clever, original, with a subtle sense of energy and direction. A subtle hint of search engine visibility would be nice as well.
Rising stats do play an important role in SEO, so a combination of springboard (or direction) and a bar graph is one idea we're fond of.
Remember:We're not selling springs or diving boards. Hinting at a springboard effect can be more effective than an illustration of any type of spring!
Preference will be given to logos that are a clever combination of text and image based; however, the logo must have a design that can easily be recognizable without the "SpringboardSEO" text that it will have in the header of the web site.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
We want simple and clean designs, nothing web 2.0. ie no strong gradients or shadows typical of 2.0 designs.
Must be relevant to our mission and product, as described above.
Must be color based with a professional, corporate color scheme, but must also be usable in black and white.
Simple is better.
Must be submitted in a common vector-based format (e.g. a native Illustrator file).
Thanks in advance to all of you, and again, we'll be paying close attention to this contest, and our feedback will reflect this. Let the games begin!
