I would like the logo to encompass 3 components. The 3 components would be 1. an icon 2. the name of the company itself, "RestaurantsOnMobile.com" and 3. my tag line, "Smart Sites For Smart Phones." Make sure the .com is included in the company name (but can be smaller lettering...I don't mind. Whatever looks good)
Please look at the website, RestaurantsOnMobile.com to see where the logo will be located and its approximate size. You will see that it will be in the top left corner of the page (where it now says Chameleon and has a Chameleon logo). BUT DON'T LET THE COLORS OR FONTS OF THE SITE INFLUENCE YOU. It's still being built. I would rather the site revolve around the new logo, then what's there now.
I do like logos that have shadows and/or some sort of "3D" effect....but not married to that idea. Maybe show me with and without that as options.
This logo will also be used on a business cards, small fliers(the size of an iphone...which I will have another contest for that design) and in video presentations intro and exit)
Obvious target audience is restaurant and bar owners.
Went through the LOgo Store here and picked out some logos that jumped out at me. I liked these for their colors, fonts, logo and/or logo placement:
