Scott Klososky and Future Point of View, LLC
Led by national speaker Scott Klososky (http://www.klososky.com), we're a forward thinking, beyond-the-horizon speaking and consulting online technology organization. We like edgy designs, untethered approaches and the excitement our clients and constituents get when we can make them feel like they've discovered the best thing since sliced bread. Ultimately we try to be as thought leading and cutting edge as possible while helping organizations harness the power of online technologies to keep them ahead of the industry curve.
Essentially, this product will not be introduced to a completely new market, however it will be used across a myriad of top professionals from a broad range of industries. It will need to be something that looks appealing to multiple audiences from various nationalities.
We aim to deliver a new approach for facilitating and working with large groups at major speaking events. The product we develop will be similar to the Wiffitti platform (http://wiffiti.com/) but will be geared to work simpler, easier and more conducive for a keynote speaker to use when addressing and answering the questions of thousands in an audience. With Wiffitti, audience member comments and questions are texted, received and collected on screen. With our new product, the speaker/presenter will be able to touch on a comment or question via an iPad and drag it to a side bar where it will then take precedent and be shown full size on a big screen.
What we need:
A logo mark AND product name for a new iPad application that will allow a speaker/presenter on stage to field many ideas, questions and comments from an audience crowd while using the iPad to screen, organize, and focus in on what submissions should be answered or used first.
This product will be used immediately by national technology speaker Scott Klososky and will later be marketed and sold to other speakers who find it useful for their style of presenting.
This general concept is known as "idea harvesting" from the crowd. The type of design and product name we are looking for should play into terminology along the lines of word or phrases like "crowd screening", "crowd filtering", "crowd interact", "crowd link", "crowd voice" or "crowd scan". Essentially something that couples the word crowd with what the app is designed to do: screen and filter, organize and focus in on multiple texted submissions from an audience crowd.
Each of these terms ties in with another product name and logo we have for a company we run called Crowdscribed. The link to this sample site is below with the logo in the top left corner of the main page of the site. Crowdscribed is for publishing books but what we are looking for with the iPad product also appeals to working with a crowd - taking ideas, comments and questions from a crowd of people via digital means, sorting through them, and focusing on them.
We are looking for a design and name that are edgy and progressive yet sophisticated. The product itself will be used on big screen projectors with the logo at times being featured just as big so it needs to be something that can work horizontally and vertically. There are no color requirements.
Please supply a logo mark and product name as both a combined design as well as a stand alone design (logo mark with no product name included).
We will ask winning designer to submit final drafts with each of the following:
