Help create an awesome logo for the next big thing: Spoticious/Spoticious.com. The venture is still in early development but we would like to have a logo locked down soon. The logo should be easily adaptable for mobile app icon (iPhone/Android) and browser favicon use. Also, the logo should be easily differentiable from other (hundreds of) location-based mobile apps available. The name Spoticious is a play with words such as Spot (as in location), spontaneous and "icious". The idea behind it is that it offers users an pleasant encounter with a place, whether it's a restaurant, a local business or whatever.
UPDATED: Here are some feedbacks I've given to other designers.
1. The location marker is an intuitive way for users to get a sense of what the app/website is about, but I feel that not only does it lack a substance in terms of its full potential but also might be lost in the tons of other app/website that have location markers in their logo. I'm not saying it's an absolute no no, but if included, it need to stand out from the crowd.
2. The color/tone/theme used should help users easily identify with the brand/product. Much like facebook is blue, twitter is cyan, Yelp is red, or in the telecom industry, verizon for red, at&t for blue, sprint for sprint. You get my point.
3. Finally and most importantly, I recently learned that some people may have trouble pronouncing the name and I was wondering whether there's a way to play with the design to make the correct pronunciation more apparent. The correct pronunciation should be SPOT-TICIOUS (if you know what I mean).
Do to 99design rules, I can't guarantee it until I get 10 design. I'll officially do so when it allows me to.
