We are currently operating under the name Kassi, so this is a rebranding case. Our current webpage with the current logo is here: http://www.kassi.eu
The logo should have two parts: an icon and a text part. They need to work together when placed side by side, but the icon part needs to also work by itself in a square form (as an iOS icon, web favicon, social media icons etc). We'd like the icon to be, well, iconic, so that we could use it alone in many contexts, without the text part (think of Nike logo). I attached the slogan too but mostly the logo will probably be used without the slogan, or the slogan just written after the logo. However, it would be nice to get a version where the slogan is incorporated as well.
Good examples of the style we are going for: Ning http://www.ning.com/ and Audiodraft http://www.audiodraft.com/ (of these two we like the Audiodraft logo more)
The two images attached represent our current layout. The logo will serve in both of them, so it needs to work with those two designs (icon + text form in the "start your own community" layout and icon only in the single community layout).
However, we are planning to do a redesign soonish, and even change the current colors. So the logo should be really simple and adaptable: it should not be too attached to the current design and current colors. Again, the Ning logo is a good example of an adaptable logo like this.
"Sharetribe" might sound a bit hippie to some people. However, we want our product be for everyone, not just for eco-activists. Our customers range from small associations to large companies. So the logo should not be too connected with the word "tribe", no tribal figures or anything like that. :) Instead, we want the logo to be quite low-key, but still highlighting our values: sharing between people and creating trust between strangers.
