How Coffee & Domains started their logo design journey
Coffee & Domains
We're a brand new startup that is focused on delivering excellent and inexpensive domain name registration and management services. We're focused on transparency in pricing and terms. No upsells or silly fees. We are focusing on letting users search for .com, .net, and .org domain names in one place with the prices clearly listed and no advertising and upsell garbage littering the site. We're also focusing on a simple and easy to use management console for your domain names once registered.

Anyone looking to register and/or manage a domain name!
We're looking for a logo that incorporates the notion of coffee and donuts into it. Maybe even a to-go cup of coffee to convey efficiency and speed. We would also like to include, if possible and maybe on the coffee cup itself, ".com", ".net", ".org" somewhere in there. When we imagine a logo we see a steaming cup of fresh coffee, a donut or donuts, perhaps a bite missing, chocolate frosting, and maybe sprinkles. The logo will be displayed in the header of the site which will have a mocha-ish/coffee brown colored background. So maybe a version for white backgrounds and a version for the darker backgrounds would be appropriate. Of course you, as the designer, have the creativity and that is why we are here! Be creative and feel free to come up with anything that comes into your mind when you hear Coffee & Domains!
We've decided to update this to be a bit more specific. We've seen the initial submissions and that's given us a more focused idea on what we want: We'd like to see way less focus on the word "coffee" and way more focus on the word "domains" as that is central to the business. We'd also like to see any images (cups, etc...) to the left of the font. I'm uploading an image of a coffee cup that embodies the style of the image we'd like to see. We're also thinking a to-go cup (think Starbucks cup with top). Maybe a donut next to the cup or maybe, if done really well, a donut incorporated into the font somehow. We've seen a few with this so far but you have to be careful not to take focus away from the "domains." Working in ".com", ".net", ".org" on to the to-go coffee cup/mug would be nice as well.
