Identity of the trademark
in major : quality, reliability, ease of use and cosmopolitan (we want to unite runners from all over the world)
in minor: shared passion, proximity
Ahotu is a Tahitian word. (see wave file for the pronunciation)
There are two ways to interpret the word by dividing it in two parts.
"Aho" : blow / breath
"tu' : stubbornness
"a" : imperative
"hotu" : emergence of fruits
All combined would mean :" May your never constant blow bring its fruits"
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
Ahotu is the name of the company. We need a logo for it.
The new logo will replace the 42k195 logo. We have been working on a new design for the web site (see attached pictures) and we would like the logo to use the same colors (green, red and black). But as the web site isn't in production yet we may adapt it to the new logo if we really like its design.
The logo will mainly be used online, but could be used on promotional material such as T-shirts, bandanas... This means that people can be proud to wear the logo.
The logo shouldn't explicitly use running. The logo should be used on other sites about activities sharing the same values.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Mostly 35-49 year old runners from all over the world. They are quite affluent and most have education (cf : http://www.quantcast.com/42k195.com#demo...
All are passionate about endurance running. Most
The target audience will certainly spread to other endurance activities.
Geographical breakdown of the audience : Europe : 44%, North America : 36%, Asia 10%, Rest of the world : 10%.
