I'm launching an SEO business in the Seattle area, and am looking for a sharp, clean, "web 2.0" style logo; similar to the one I recently held a contest on for StartupTrek.net (see my banner - it has the logo). I've held many contests on sitepoint in the past, they were all successful because i give quick, accurate feedback on all the excellent submissions. I was also featured on CBS TV interview in San Francisco with Matt, Sitepoint's founder (the video is on this site, and on StartupTrek.net). I'm looking forward to another great contest with this one!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Small to mid-sized business owners who are looking for competent help from a good seo firm. This is a geographically targeted business (to the Seattle, WA area) so it's OK to use a local icon like a shadow of "the Space Needle" in the design. Or, something of your own creation.
Want to keep it simple, and since the logo needs to include the words "Seattle Internet Marketing", that probably means one graphic item with the words worked around it somehow. I want to use just one emphasis color, probably blue, so that it can be printed on a business card / brochure / direct mail without requiring a 4-color print process. Take a look at the winning logo from my StartupTrek.net design contest, that's the right general look I'm after.
I look forward to responding quickly to every entry! Thanks for your interest.
