Original note explained that Duwun is Burmese for the northern pole star so that a significant pole star design should be included in logo. But since then, we've made a few clarifications and suggestions in the public announcements. We've updated this note duly.
The logo should help the site portray itself as a provider of accurate and timely news and entertainment. Logo should attract young and social readers, and should be simple enough with its freestyle and youthful style as well.
Logo should be uniquely identifiable, and both symbol and typography should be included in the design.
Updating the brief with some important points:
1. Five-pointed stars (especially if they are sharply pointed and edged) resemble military logos and shall be avoided.
2. Icons which mimic any religion, faith, so as to avoid religious and social tones. (E.g. moon crescents, David star, etc.)
3. Green typography and a red star resemble a very famous beer brewery company from Europe, and shall be avoided.
4. Feel free to submit color themes other than Red/Green as well.
Please try a couple of ideas: one with current format of trying to express DUWUN through an illustrative icon / logo.
Another idea: try to play with typography and try to express DUWUN on the typography itself, without having the need to rely on illustrative drawing of a star.
Third idea: try to play with "D" using typography.
