I am VERY open to your creative ideas. My initial requirements are as follows:
Want something fun and happy - smart, easy to see, easy to remember, impressive, something relatable across the board (for example, even though I, personally, might love something modern and artsy, it may not play in Poughkeepsie). A house graphic is a required element.
Even though the title is "The American Dream Sweepstakes", please stay away from the "flag" or "red white and blue" theme. The logo should be bright, happy, inspiring, energetic, attention-grabbing, and WOW.
There should be no references to "money" in the logo.
Please use a graphic (house) AND typography in the logo. Need a logo that can be used on the web and in print materials.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo. We need to be able to resize the logo without distortion. We also need a version with a transparent background.
