Business name
Description of business

ekarda is web based ecard sending software (SaaS). The user can login, select an ecard (christmas, birthday, seasonal, thanksgiving etc) and then send it out.

NOTE: We had an (ONE) unsuccessful design contest however that was NOT for a logo. For the ekarda logo contest - we have a higher budget and a simpler brief. We therefore believe that the job will definitely be awarded so please make sure you enter!

The ekarda brand is 'natural' (environmentally friendly), approachable, light, friendly, happy, beautiful, stylish, personal and simple.

We have had plenty of designs with 'e' on a leaf followed by 'karda'. I don't think we need any additional leaf designs unless they are absolutely exceptional.

I would like to see some different designs with a stylised icon to go along with 'ekarda'. The icon should represent environmental friendliness, ecards/email, SaaS and simplicity.

Please do not submit for this competition unless you are an experienced designer with a history of successful logo designs.

I am liking these colours however I am open to other suggestions:…r_logo.png
