How toddynho started their logo design journey

Summary

At HubSpot.com we have a series of internet marketing tools that we release for free at *.Grader.com. We need a logo that will work for all of those *'s, please read the full post…

Company name

Grader.com (but please read full post)

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Maybe you have heard of http://Website.Grader.com, http://Twitter.Grader.com or http://PressRelease.Grader.com We're looking for a new logo that will work for all of our free products at Grader.com.  We realize that is asking a lot for a logo to be so versatile, but that's why this contest is $750 – we need an exceptional logo.  
 
So, the core logo is Grader.com, but we should be able to add a prefix to the Grader.com and it should still work.  For example:
 
Twitter.Grader.com
OR
Website.Grader.com
 
The goal is that the logo will work (and look nice) with any text before it.  YOUR MOCKUPS SHOULD INCLUDE AT LEAST TWO VARIATIONS SHOWING HOW THE SUB-DOMAINS WILL WORK INTO THE LOGO.
 
Here are links to logos that we like and notes on why we like them.  This doesn't mean that you should copy any concepts, rather, it's to give you a feel for the type of quality we're looking for.

Wants

- We prefer a straight text logo where the icon work into the text vs. having an icon to the left or above the logo.
- A clean logo with clear/strong type that will work on a white background (or reversed in white).
- It needs to use one (or more), or close variations of the following colors:
-- orange: #e36f1e
-- dark dark blue/grey: #455560
-- lighter, but still strong, blue: #589ceb
- Sans-Serif font
- There should be room on the logo for us to attach an "alpha" or "beta" flag.
