This company is originally (and still) a B2B reaching out to B2C so the logo should be fun and expressive but not too silly. We're very open-minded to find a fresh way to say 'events'.
The creative door is open here. Events cover a wide genre - sports, crafts, arts, kids, boats/rvs, home & garden, music, food, etc.
Please incorporate the tagline "if it's happening, it's happening here" as we want to position this site as 'the goto' site for events and happenings.
Thought about tickets if it can be done in a fresh way - tickets have certainly been used a lot in logos.
I prefer fast contests where possible and I always pay very promptly. We are also designers so we will give plenty of feedback and appreciate/respect your time.
Thanks and good luck!
- fun and expressive (not cartoonish)
- gradients (not overused though)
- soft reflection is fine but again, not overdone
- no beveling
- no shadows
- no 3D
