I need a square icon to integrate into the regular marketing diner logo (see uploaded file). The icon has to be simple and recognizable enough to be picked out amongst other small square logos such as on the iTunes directory or on a Twitter stream (i.e. it should be recognizable and distinct at scales as small as 48 x 48 pixels or perhaps even smaller)
Colors can vary based on what you believe to stand out most but should fit in with the color template on the blog as it exists now (http://blog.marketingdiner.com)
The ultimate goal is to exude the theme/tagline of the show - "Feed Your Brand, Not Your Ego." Or, in other terms, making decisions based on data, analysis and smart strategy relavent to your client and what will move the consumer agenda forward and not just what makes the biggest statement about who you are/your ego.
I am trying to avoid just using the initials of the show "MD" but the winner of the contest will probably be someone who brings forward a strikingly simple design with a lot of innovative impact. Think abstract, think clean design think immediately recognizable and not easily confused for something else.
