How Fivebots started their logo design journey

Company name

Fivebots

Overview

Hi!

We are excited to be launching Fivebots.

Fivebots is a new service that uses a question-and-answer model to generate social recommendations. Users can ask for recommendations for anything--movies, music, TV, restaurants, video games, books, local services, and more. We turn each question into a "bot" that requests and collects responses from your friends and social network as well as from others in the general community. Our bots then organize and prioritize all the responses to provide the most relevant recommendations for you.

Here's how it works:
1. Ask your question or join an existing recommendation "bot."
2. Ask at least five friends that you trust and believe would provide a good response to your question.
3. We'll send you your personalized recommendations as soon as we can!

The winning designer will be the top candidate to do additional work for us and produce our branded materials, collateral, etc.

Thanks,

The Fivebots Team

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

This part is so cliche that you probably don't even need to read it, but here it is anyways:

We are initially targeting a hip, tech-savvy, urban demographic that is passionate about their interests. Think foodies, musicphiles, movie-lovers, etc. Our target users probably already use social and review sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, last.fm, Metacritic, etc. They are passionate about expressing themselves through blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Did we hit all the buzzwords and hot companies there?

Requirements

We are looking for a logo design that will be the backbone for our branding and onsite visual style.

We are open to all ideas but here are our general thoughts and requirements:
* We own and will use fivebots.com, so the logo should feature "five" as a word not a digit for clarity.
* Any capitalization--Fivebots, FiveBots, or fivebots--is fine, although we have been going with the first version and think it looks good.
* We want something warm, friendly, and rich in personality, not sterile. Logos we admire: Twitter, Last.fm, Skype. Logos we don't like: Facebook (sterile), Yelp (tacky/cheap), TechCrunch (boring).
* We are loosely amused by the robot theme and plan to use it in our design and copy (each topic/question onsite becomes a "bot"). The logo should incorporate a robot icon, robot theme elements, or at least be complementary to what we're trying to do.
* We want something that really pops--via design, color, or whatever.

Some robot iconography we like:
