How Steve Poland started their logo design journey

Company name

MyFavorites.com

Overview

I have run 4 other contests on here and guaranteed their prizes. Have been pleased by them. I'm responsive to designs and provide feedback.

I'm this guy: http://blog.stevepoland.com/about

Planning for a lot of visibility for this logo/site.

Logos I like:
- Winners of my last 4 contests: http://99designs.com/people/stp
- Twitter
- simplicity of Hype Machine's heart http://hypem.com

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The site is going to be all the sites/videos/etc that the user likes -- their favorites.

The logo/mark/icon will be used in a toolbar in the web browser, so that users can 'add to myfavorites.com'. So basically, like how there's a star for favorites in Internet Explorer browser and Google's Chrome browser. We're looking to replace 'bookmarks' and 'favorites' from normal web browsers. We'll have some similar functionality to Facebook's "like" button.

We need an icon that people will associate with 'MyFavorites.com'. My assumption is this will be a star, but we're open to ideas... and can be variations of a star, we want ours to be unique. Or maybe it ends up being a heart. Facebook uses a thumbs up; Twitter uses a star; Hype Machine uses a heart.

Possible ideas:
- a star with the word 'my' in the middle of it.
- a thumbs up (like Facebook's "like" thumb) that is a star hand?

Requirements

The logo should include a 2- or 3-color scheme, which we'll then utilize throughout our website [once we design that]. We don't have a color scheme, but maybe yellow for the star? And/or yellow/blue. Or yellow/red? Open to ideas.

Logo should be the mark/icon, as well as 'MyFavorites.com' spelled out.

Please also assume our logo/icon [the star?] will have an on/off state to it. Maybe the star is simply white if not clicked, and then yellow once clicked.

I'm looking for a clean, simple, nice logo that can help build the brand.

NO FADES, FADING, FADE BACKGROUNDS.

YOUR LOGO SHOULD BE ON WHITE BACKGROUND. Feel free to put the favicon idea on there as well.

The end logo should be in vector -- likely illustrator format with all layers included and neatly organized, just in case we need to mod it later. Style guide of the colors and fonts used. Favicon.ico, 200px wide transparent PNG, 600px wide transparent PNG. Black/white, greyscale, color versions in vector.
