How mhyanke started their logo design journey
We are LifeShare International, a dot com that allows users to login and share their lives via the printed post and greeting cards. Think of shutterfly or flickr, but you can mail your uploaded images or a pre-designed greeting card to recipients.
The idea of LifeShare is to share your life's experiences or thoughts with the card. So someone could say thank you by going online and making a quick card that we print and mail for them. Another person could utilize LifeShare for sending a special birthday message or thinking of you note. The possibilities are endless as to how a user of LifeShare can impact lives with nice, thoughtful messages and pictures through actual printed greeting cards.
We also are planning on having a smart phone app where you can snap a pic, then share it to recipients via a postcard or greeting card. Everything is mailed next business day. Our domain name is http://www.mylifeshare.com. Thanks!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
CEO-Moms who manage the household and it's memories and Baby Boomers who wish to share their legacies. We are also trying to break into the 25-40 year old business minded person who would utilize this as a keeping in touch mechanism for personal and business use.
We would like something that accentuates the name, LifeShare and tells the customer that mailing of greeting cards is involved somehow.....perhaps an image of postcards hitting a mailbox. Would like it to be contemporary and cool. We will also need a design with http://www.mylifeshare.com incorporated in it after the LifeShare logo is identified.
In terms of color, we must stay away from RED. We have been utilizing an earth color like green. We don't want our color to be too bold, however it needs to stand out.
We will be a leader in the printing and greeting card industry and need our logo to look like the industry leader as well.
LifeShare is written with no spaces and a capital L and S as seen here. It is not critical that International is in the LifeShare branding or logo, but the web address needs to flow with the logo when used together.
