First of all, you're free to be very creative in this logo. I have no preconceived notion on what this should look like. To help guide you, here are some parameters / thoughts.
We worked on building a mock-up machine that would ultimately be built to execute this business (it's a self-service business, not a "manned" solution). I will attach an image of this foam mock up. Please don't be distracted by the "stand-in" logo on here. This is not the logo we want.
But the color scheme is blue, green and yellow. I'd prefer to stick with this color scheme.
This concept centers around some key words: gift cards, exchanging gift cards, cash, instant gratification, money, marketplace, trading, cash liquidity, etc.
I will be taking this into market on Nov 15th, so this needs to move fast!
The business name of should be integrated with the logo (or rather, I'm looking for input on how the name AND logo should look). This should appeal to the masses, be fairly clean, and professional but engaging and attracting all consumers
I need output to be in simple picture format (such as .jpg, .gif).
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
