LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
OffTheCouch is a new type of online guide/events calendar for any kind of activity that will take people out of their home. It could be a mountain bike race, cooking lessons, quilt symposium, conference, protest demonstration - anything
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
I'm looking for a simple, highly recognisable logo with attitude. I'm pretty sure I want a comfy red couch (like a couch version of apple's front row chair - see enclosed picture), with rolled arms and a curved back, viewed front on that looks like it has been hastily departed - maybe there is a box of popcorn spilt on it.
I'm keen to see any other cool ideas though.
The logo can, but does not have to, include the url:
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
We'll have two specific groups of people going to the site:
General public looking for something to do or who have a particular hobby and they want to see what sort of events are on related to their hobby.
And just as important, the promoters putting on these events who are helping those above get 'off the couch' by giving them something else to do.
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
Apple front row icon - nice use of gradients and texture to make a welcoming looking seat.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
If you include any text in the logo you must be able to name and provide a copy (or source) of the font used.
Along with a standard logo size it must be recognisable in a small 'powered by' format, say, 128 pixels wide.
I'd also like to use the top portion of the couch in the background of the web page just visible at the bottom of the page, so it needs to be high enough resolution to size up to 700px wide.
Please allow the logo to work on light or dark backgrounds providing two versions if necessary.
As the logo will be included on faxes any logos that also work as black on white will be rated higher (other things being equal).
