Logo and Header design for 5 Star Affiliate Programs
Need new Web 2.0 type of look or just more modern, clean and hi tech.
SITE and REQUIREMENTS
This is a contest for a logo and header for a popular affiliate marketing destination site. There is a separate site, blog and forum. The same header needs to work and fit on all.
Colors - Blueish Teal, gold/yellow and orange like existing colors - but leaning more toward Orange.
These colors are perfect! http://www.free-css-templates.com/demo/LGBlue/
NOTE: Colors must go with rest of site backgrounds and sidebar colors so I don't have to redesign the whole site.
Main site: 5 Star Affiliate Programs(will be redesigned to be the same width as forum)
Forum: 5 Star Forums
Blog: 5 Star Affiliate Blogs
NOTE: Header needs to be full width of forum and blog extending over right sidebar all the way to right side of page. Current header is too narrow to fit page.
Logo must work within your new header design but must also be provided as a stand-alone graphic in hi res scalable format that can be used for an icon or avatar later.
DESIGN IDEAS - THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Just throwing out some ideas. A couple headers/logos I like NOTE not saying any of these are even close to what I want, just designs that caught me eye.

http://beyondnichemarketing.com/ (hi tech and bold)
http://www.cpa-affiliates.com/ (not the dark background just the logo)
I just started adding some logo elements and ideas I like and some notes here:
I'll add to it as I find designs I like.
.:. Extra perks - Free publicity and PR
Additionally, I will blog about the winning design and designer and post in my forum with PR5 links to the designer and/or their portfolio. My blog is the #1 ranked affiliate blog and gets over 1500 visitors a day. All my affiliates and merchants do marketing and need logos and banners!
