MUST BE CLEAN looking
4 colors or less, preferably 2 colors max
Logo should be shown against a white background
The logo should include a representative icon (image) and accompanying text for AdBeat + a catch-phrase; the catch-phrase will be a short (3-5 word) summary of the business. (For now use "The Pulse of Online Advertising") The font for the catch-phrase should be complimentary to the main logo, but need not be identical.
Alternatively, if you can figure out a great way to incorporate a design into the characters of AdBeat, then that would be acceptable and maybe even preferable. For example, http://chartbeat.com/. However, do not submit anything that is structured like the chartbeat logo with the pulse off the end of the t. If you choose this option, I still need some simple symbol that can represent the logo at 32x32 and 16x16 size.
Consider the http://www.hitwise.com/us/ logo for inspiration and the concept of bringing together bits of data into structure. This could be a good design angle.
Vector-based graphics, that accommodate the following:
* website logo approx 200x50 - 200x80 (icon/image + AdBeat name & catch-phrase)
* very large icon 300x300 (icon/image only)
* large icon 150x150 (icon/image only)
* small icon 32x32 (icon/image only)
* tiny/favicon icon 16x16 (icon/image only)
DO NOT USE:
Cursive fonts, digital clock looking fonts, excessively angular fonts, serif fonts
Complex 3D designs
I'll provide feedback as the designs come in.
