We are a startup web business with a plan to help teachers share online information with each other and keep it organized. We are a small shop with big expectations. We are shooting for the moon with no holds barred. We are looking for something that appeals to the teaching community but still stands out from the crowd. We want a design that you can look at for a long time as we hope to have users on the site for longer periods of time.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is the teaching community exclusively. We are targeting all teachers from JK to 12. We do not focus on college or university.
Teachers are mostly cautious and we need to distance ourselves from such sites as Facebook, twitter and delicious. The community does not look favorably on these sites and any relationship to them would be a detriment.
We need a logo. The site name is Cube for Teachers (cube 4 teachers works too). Our initial designs involved a transparent cube with an easel style chalk board inside. Please feel free to be creative but keep in mind that this will be the basis of our color scheme and we need something pleasing and easy to look at for a while.
