We like many of the mascots listed here http://www.quora.com/What-start-ups…ther-icons
We'd be interested to see something involving the concept of "wishing", "wishes granted", "magic", "helper", etc - like the following - but don't feel obligated to use these - if you think we need a platypus, give us a damn platypus!
* Magician's hat
* Genie (male or female)
* Magic lamp
* Wizard's hat
* A star (as in "wish upon a star")
Our audience are the folks that handle customer service in small and medium businesses - they are typically overworked, underpaid, and in desperate need of something to help them. They care a lot about their customers, and want to be as helpful as possible, but don't have enough hours in the day.
Wishery is here to help our customers help their customers.
Our core product value is "transforming customer service into marketing" - but we aren't sure how exactly you'll incorporate that into a logo ; )
* Do not incorporate the word "Wishery" or any alphanumeric characters
* We prefer cartoon or graphic style with areas of single colors - no photorealistic or detailed monochrome line illustrations
* Ideally the winner will include a favicon-sized version of the logo that is still recognizable (see http://www.loggly.com for a good example)
