We represent an online auction company that specializes in liquidations of seized items, foreclosed items, and clearance items. Often, our merchandise comes from divorces, estate sales, bankruptcies and bank seizures.
The site will also run auctions on behalf of other online auction companies. (See sites listed below for examples of other similar sites that do this.)
As a result, we sell lots of expensive jewelry, loose gems, Rolex watches, sports memorabilia, Hollywood memorabilia, expensive cars, antique coins and currency -- all at auction prices. In many cases, opening bids start always at a dollar. In all cases, our items are 100% genuine and as described.
We'd like to attract people who like to buy expensive stuff at a discount -- similar to people who buy at Bidz.com, uBid.com, Proxibid.com, iCollector.com and LiveAuctioneers.com. Please check out those sites before submitting your art.
Our target audience are people who like to buy at auctions, and in particular the sites listed above. The people are generally 40 or 50 years old or older, are relatively well off, and are passionate about the things they buy (i.e. Coin buyers, Hollywood fans, sports fans, jewelry lovers). They are always looking for bargains -- and better yet, to "steal" something at an auction. We want them to brag to their friends about what they just bought, either because it is so remarkable, or because they paid so little for it.
COLOR AND SHAPE
We have NO specific requirements as to shape or color of the logo. We just want people to know that this is THE Live Online Auction. It needs to be a trustworty, legitimate looking logo. People should know that when they buy here, they are going to get exactly what they paid for.
* The colors should be web safe colors, and are open to any "trustworthy" colors. (ie no hot pinks, neon colors, or baby-like pastels). We're really open to almost anything else.
* Deliverables would be the logo itself, in the following formats:
* Layered, original source PSD or Illustrator format
* Static JPG, GIF, PNG with and without transparency where possible.
Note: We'll be placing the logo onto our own website and likely building the entire website around the logo that you design.
We're looking forward to your design.
