The Logo design for April Media
April Media () is a web site founded in 2010 and it focus on the event-related on-line video service around the world, but specifically root in China. April Media would like to learn from the business model of Huffington Post (www.huffingtonpost.com) and Fora.tv ( fora.tv ) and try to boost the thoughtful idea in China. We would like to leverage the resources from Universities, think tanks and public forums to boost the confidence of Chinese people, especially the young generation.
The design should be simple, concise, best with only 1-2 colors (3 colors is maximum). The logo should be bright, fresh but not over-joyful. The color could be dark crimson or something like that (The background of the website would be white (turn the "light" on) or black( 'turn the "light" off' model when you watch the online-video in dark night) ). The April Media is represented by the short abbreviation of "M4", so the design should be included the elements of "M4". We are unsatisfied with the current design style and color (see http://www.m4.cn/ ). We want to pick up a logo with such style (http://blog.designcrowd.com/article/243/... ). And we will considering turn our style into a much more concise website than current design.
The April Media originates from the oversea Chinese student movement in Spring of 2008. It inherits the confident, optimistic spirit of the young generation. We want to present the video product with positive content to the people. We will cooperate with the universities for the content like "open course initiative (for example, Harvard and Yale have such platform, and we will do the same thing in China), and with the enterprises to show their achievement for construction.
You can design our logo with an open mind.
