*UPDATE* If you have an idea for a text based logo that goes with the MarketConnector_Screenshot.png file then please submit it.
BUT...We are now open to submissions for both an icon and logo to give you, the designer, more freedom and creative ability in conceptualizing the brand. Please use Screenshot2.png if designing both icon and text.
MarketConnector is a professional network so we are looking for something professional but creative, crisp, and sleek.
We really want something that will create a brand. It doesn't have to be crazy but something that is unique enough that people will recognize it as MarketConnector's logo.. think Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin.. all very simple designs but have a unique touch that people recognize it as being the companies logo.
Please consider the icon will sit next to the fb, twitter, and other social network icons, on our business members websites. Please show the icon by itself when submitting the design.
MarketConnector is a long name so any attempt to shorten the width of the design is a plus but not required (ex: layered).
Needs to fit within the header space given and mesh with the rest of the design shown.
Please show a view of the logo in the design and also separately by itself.
Thank you for your submissions!
