The logo should be something to the left similar to the examples (brain or something conveying the same message) with Female Intel to the right. You can do all caps or not, that's up to your discretion.
The font currently on my site is OSWALD, in all caps, but that doesn't mean you have to use it. We currently use PINK and BLACK in the design but it DOES NOT NEED TO BE PINK. I will change my sites accent color based on what the logo uses as a second main color. The logo does not need to be just two colors. Please make the text portion UNIQUE. Flat colors can work depending on what your icon is.
If you can't use Photoshop & Illustrator to make a brain or something close to those examples, drawn by you, please do not apply. I am looking for something along those lines and not looking for any text in the left, the only text should be FEMALE INTEL (site name).
I design user interfaces and website layouts but cannot draw things like brains, that's why I am paying $500. If you aren't able to do that, please do not waste either of our time.
These are some mandatory things: Each logo must have some sort of art to the left side of it which can be branded by itself without the website name next to it on business cards because it's creative and not just a shape from Photoshop. Do not use a woman's face, outline of a woman and anything else that is that obvious. I am looking to concentrate on the part about them learning from my website's articles. The site is about WOMEN'S FINANCES and their careers, and us teaching them how to be a better entrepreneur, how to move up the corporate ladder and how to dress at work. The examples of a brain are what I am getting at for what goes to the left of the title. The site teaches them, it makes them smarter financially with money and in their job.
