I'm attaching a snippet of what the interface will look like on a gray background. The background color is not finalized, it'll either be a lighter gray or white.
Please note that the "orange" you see is that of the sections color. Each section will have its own accent color. So ideally, color wise something that meshes with the blue gradient interface which will be constant throughout the site. You can see a sense of the accent colors on the old design temporarily at opinview.com
In regards to text, preferably all lowercase. I'm open to having one font for the entire word or two to differentiate that the word is made up of "opinion" and "review"
In regards to a symbol, I'm open to all suggestions.. I've played around with talk bubbles, but open to clever out of the box ideas.
Target audience: will mainly be local users anywhere from the age 21-45, who enjoy local deals, providing reviews, and finding businesses in their area. I'm trying keep a clean but youthful feel to the site.
