WHAT IS WANTED
We need a logo and a logo-related favicon for TopStay. You should provide source vector art on white backgrounds.
UPDATE: Art that works on a black background was previously asked for. That is no longer required.
The words can be mixed case, TopStay, or all lower case, topstay. It should be one word together, TopStay, and not two separated words, “Top Stay”.
UPDATE2: All upper case or using small caps is okay. I now realize that can convey a "top" place better. I'm starting to think all lower case is actually not right.
Having a graphic element with the name is preferred, but not required.
Clean, minimal designs are preferred to complicated ones.
NOTE: Several people have submitted designs that are similar to the HomeAway.com logo. While it's a fairly obvious design choice, I don't want people to think it resembles HomeAway when they see this logo.
A few people have put realistic images. They don't render well when small and I don't think they're as classy. Keep it more abstract and simple.
Do not submit cute, silly, or "fun" treatments.
