Web 2.0 look/style (We realize this is vague. See http://appuseful.com/ and http://www.tradevibes.com/ for inspiration/clarification)
Look at facebook, digg, and twitter logos. This logo should look like it could hang out with those guys.
At the same time, as this is a classroom product, we would like to see elements/effects pulled in from a traditional classroom. In other words, think of how a student's notes or a teacher's blackboard (or white board) writing looks. We would like to see some logos that look like they were drawn by a pencil/chalk/marker or on a paper/blackboard material
An icon should be included as part of, or along with, the logo. Something that will make sense on a small browser tab (16x16 pixels, known as a "favicon") or as an iphone app icon. See facebook, twitter, linkedin, and Pandora for examples.
The icon should have square proportions, no rectangles please.
If you are going to use letters in your icon, please ensure that their font matches the font used in the full name.
For more information about favicons please see: http://www.photoshopsupport.com/tut…vicon.html
Open to all colors at this point.
If you have ANY questions, please ask.
Please do not use any photos, clipart or fonts which may carry licences with them.
