Our company is in the early startup phase and we are seeking design help in creating a logo and a matching social media icon in establishing our identity. Our team is developing a unique application to help professionals make relevant connections within the Twitter Ecosystem. These connections will help professionals connect to peers, clients and potential employers. A user will start by building their own professioal profile page for their Twitter profile, we will also provide a unique platform to manage information from other professionals they follow on Twitter for their career.
Target Audience is focused in on professionals who actively use social media for different aspects of their personal and professional life. This application is a Twitter App. Think of LinkedIn for the Twitter Ecosystem (not the logo but the application itself) We believe our target audience are heavy users of Smart Phones and regularly communicate with friends over social networks. They are likely to be tech savvy and younger. We also plan to capture active job seekers and employers so the design should be fun, friendly yet clean and professional. For more information, please visit our website at http://www.twizam.com. This site is temporary and will most likely be redesigned once applications are closer to release. Please do not use this site as a reference for design.
I'm updating the requirments to be less restrictive and introduce more creativity. The priority of the design is finding a signature font design. I will leave it up to the designer if he / she wants to inocporate a small icon in the overall design. Some examples might be a resume icon, a bird holding a resume in its mouth, or any other creative ways to design a custom logo that fits our comapny's target audience.
We are partial to a blue color, but this is not a hard requirement. However the blue color should not be identical to Twitter's colors as we want to avoid future copyright problems. Similar colors are okay, but I will leave this up to the designer.
In addition we are looking for a social media icon to match. See the following examples: http://barloweinteractive.com/image…active.jpg
The social media icon should consist of the letters "tz" For designers that are really ambitious, we would love to see the tz icon with a thumbs up incorporated into the design. This last part is not required. The reason for this is users will be able to place this icon on their individual blogs. If a blog reader finds the content insightful, they can click on the tz thumbs up logo to say nice job. This click will translate into a score that will be displayed on the professional profile page of the person who authored the blog. This feature is known as receiving a "Twizam" A made up actionable word for our brand.
I hope this enough detail, if not please let me know and I will try to provide more information that will be useful in creating a great design. I will also be happy to answer any questions.
