Corktopia will be a "Wine Enthusiast Community" that aims to not only educate novices, but to also provide a community to discuss and further enjoy their passion alongside seasoned connoisseurs.
The name "Corktopia" came from the merging of "Corks" + "Utopia" and I'm looking for a logo that is a cross between web 2.0ish and elegant. The trick will be to not overdo it - if the logo comes off as TOO elegant, I fear that it may turn off potential new members.
You'll notice the site uses a rather plain design and that was done intentionally to not detract from the content. The logo is one of the few areas where I'd like to have a little eye-candy and I'm completely open to any ideas as far as color is concerned (although the background color must be #910027). I would love if you could somehow integrate a wine glass, cork, wine bottle, or some combination of the three without overdoing it.
You all do such excellent work here on SitePoint and I cannot wait to see your submissions. I'll do my best to review each one and provide additional guidance if necessary. Good luck!
