Design brief

Organization name

cars208.com

Description of business

We publish classified auto sites. We are launching a new site in Idaho called CARS 208. This will be a place for consumers to buy and sell autos locally, and will be advertised on local outlets including television and billboards.

Organization industry

Automotive

Description

None specified

Further requirements

The attached file shows logos that we like. This is just for a feel of the style we like, which seems to be somewhat rounded, same-case lettering, one or two colors, web 2.0.

We are tentatively thinking blue and/or green for the color scheme, but are open to other ideas.

The name of our business is also our web domain, so the text must be extremely clear in the logo, so someone seeing it on a billboard or tv ad can quickly know the domain.

We would like a stylized car included in the logo. This shouldn't be too cartoonish, and should be generic enough to be accessible across different types of cars and price brackets. We like the one in the logo in the attached PDF, for example.

This website will be exclusive to Idaho. This could mean including some outline of the state to make the logo local could be good. But we don't want it to be too jumbled either. We're open either way.

We appreciate any effort on this, and will do our best to provide prompt feedback. Thanks in advance.
