Nichole did a great job for us, we appreciate all the effort it took to come up with the best design and win the contest. Thanks very much.
How Ian@PO started their logo design journey
We are Planet Ocean Communications. We're the publishers of SearchEngineNews.com, the longest running subscription-based publication covering all aspects of SEO, every month since 1997.
We are looking for a logo for our new site, SearchEngineTools.com, which provides SEO tools to our customers.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target market consists of professional Search Engine Optimizers who subscribe to our web site, in order to access the various SEO-related tools we've created. These are generally customers who have already been subscribers to our other services. These customers are generally technically oriented, who are using our services to make money for themselves and their clients. Our existing customers have grown to expect quality and professional content and service, without being totally devoid of personality. We offer a service that is both informative and entertaining (or at the very least, easy to digest).
We are looking for a logo that fits our existing layout, which you can view at SearchEngineTools.com. You'll see the logo location at the top left corner of the page, which is currently just text. We're looking for a relatively professional, clean logo that is not too distracting. The logo should serve to let the user know they're at the right website, without getting in the way of their use of the site.
The logo itself should say 'SearchEngineTools.com'.
You can view some of our other logos for our other sites at http://planetocean.com. Ideally the logo would at least somewhat fit in with what we have already on our other sites.
To recap, the logo should be professional without being overly 'corporate', clean, undistracting, with a small dash of personality. The logo itself should say 'SearchEngineTools.com'.
