Please note: the attached images above are solely attached because they I thought they might inspire certain logo ideas. They are by no means required or suggested to be incorporated into the logo (unless you think it makes sense). I want to leave the process completely open to creativity.
1) This logo will receive SIGNIFICANT media coverage since as a crowdfunding platform, we are all about pushing the "crowdsourced" movement. Therefore, the winning designer will most likely receive additional benefits such as press in addition to cash compensation.
2) I would recommend looking at these (somewhat) similar sites for inspiration:
3) Here are a few potential slogans I had in mind, not for inclusion in the logo but potentially to provoke creativity:
"A revolution in funding and investing"
"Invest in exciting startups"
"Invest in the next Google or Facebook"
"Connecting entrepreneurs and investors, one idea at a time"
4) The logo needs to look very professional since Seed Invest (or SeedInvest) is an investment platform. However, it also needs to be modern, catchy and memorable.
5) The target audience is a mixture or high net worth individuals and younger, tech-savy investors between 25-35 years old.
