My brother and I have just launched a new online dictionary in Seattle that is elegantly simple and designed to help you learn. The goal is to help people remember words that they look up and ultimately help them become better readers!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are looking for a logo that is a squirrel holding a dictionary (The squirrel is stashing words to learn later). The size of the dictionary should be somewhat proportional to the size of the squirrel. Maybe a bit bigger.
The logo should be inside a circle with a white background in the circle and the words "word" and "stash" on either side of the circle.
Color: the color on the site is just a trial, please ignore fitting in with that color scheme and use colors that add realism to the squirrel and dictionary. Brown and grey are good colors. It would also be great to accentuate the white underbelly of the squirrel to add some dimension.
We need the logo in vector formats along with layered .psd. Mainly any formats that you would think would be helpful to allow us to edit the size and color at a later time.
I have uploaded a demo I created using images I found on flickr under the creative commons as an example of the proportions and shape of the kind of logo we are looking for. Please use this as a guide only and be sure to create your own unique logo.
