We are a bright startup targeting the various issues commonly found in almost any online classifieds. We started with the design, we wanted to make existing classifieds consumers feel right at home, but at the same time we also wanted to simplify and brand the interface to be our own. So we decided to use a metro colorful tile feel across the interface. The colors we chose, are also used consistently across the interface, and they behave as legends ex: Blue = "For sale", Green = "Housing" etc...
The 4 hex values we use:
But if you want to use different colors please do so. Also the logo seen in the snapshot, is not our current logo it is just a way of us programmers to express "logo goes here"
What are we looking for?
Basically we want a logo that is colorful, it emits simplicity but at the same time stability. You can play around with the words maybe you would like to use "np" or something else. We want something that would look great on a mobile splash screen and could be used to inspire the mobile app icon. Also if you would like to add an icon or symbol to the logo, feel free to do so, if you just want to do text thats cool too. One logo that I really like is zaarly.com
At the current moment we are targeting individuals around the age of 22-38, we expect a lot of use from colleges in the very beginning but in the near future we believe most of the traffic will be from married couples around the ages 32-38. Our audience will also mainly originate from people just trying to save a buck.
The winner of this contest will not just win the prize money, if we really like the winning logo, they will also be winning a new client! In the near future we will be needing a shift in the site design, smartphone app, tablet app etc.
