How rhodee started their logo design journey

Company name

Causemakers

Overview

For starters we (Denis, Jeremy, Omkar) decided to start a company and "Go Social."

We think technology should allow anyone to share ONE goal (that they would be willing to spend time implementing) and ask ONE question (are you a causemaker?) with anyone.

So what is a Causemaker? They are a community of 'design & do' types that don't go on new adventures with old plans.

Causemakers.com is angling to be the global "doing" platform for Causemaking-types.

So we are creating a platform with the following benefits:

1. Users and NGOs ‘agree’ on how volunteer time is spent and when they volunteer, and
2. Users can start volunteer projects quickly by tapping their social networks and other Causemakers to create, collaborate and implement volunteer projects.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our audience are "Internet-Enabled Volunteers".

Some characteristics they share are:

1. Gender-majority female,
2. Age-between the ages of 16 and 54 years old
3. Internet-Have access to the internet via mobile or traditional devices
4. Service-Have spent time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or individuals or groups other than (or in addition to) close relatives for an organization or informally in the last year

Requirements

We are looking for a mark and typeface (of our brand name). The logo will display prominently on our site. Your vision will be used for physical applications too (stickers and stationary). It will travel with us on our social networks.

General Expectations

1) The logo must have three colors max-and one of them is white.

2) We want a logo where the mark or typeface can be freestanding if need be.

3) We are open to the use of nodes, spokes, hubs, quadrangles or circles

There are some things we would rather not see for either the mark or brandname:

1) The use of kawaii illustration, shadows, cursive letters, speech bubbles, megaphones, badges or buttons.

Desirable Brand Name Typeface

1) Causemakers should appear as a compound word.

2) We are interested in our brand name being built from the following fonts: myndraine or delicious and/ spinach. They are all free and links to these fonts can be found on http://www.fawnt.com.

3) We want to see the word "Cause" drafted with the myndraine or delicious font.

4) "Makers" should be in spinach font.

5) For the word "makers" please show us a pixel effect.

6) The pixels could be circles or squares and the individual elements you choose should have a margin greater than 1. The elements should not share borders.

Summary + Inspiration

We want a logo that reflects the boldness of our brand name and the spirit of collaborative disruption.

To get a sense of the space here are some URLs: crowdrise.org, dosomething.org and onebrick.org. Also, here are sites that we like: loggly.com, gigaom.com.

Here is a CHALLENGE: Our logo must represent volunteering in the 21st century ---social benefit in a technology-driven world. We'd like to see how you blend those two concepts.

To give you an idea of representative icons we've attached two images. One is the wi-fi icon. The other a pixelated white glove.

Can you create a mark blending the two images?

PLEASE INCLUDE:
Original vector artwork (Color / Grayscale / Mark-only / Type-Face)

Font names that were used.

We are excited and grateful that YOU are sharing your time, talent and treasure with us. Who knows-you may be Causemaker in the very near future!
