LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We are a small team comprised of software developers, web developers and writers. Our site, Zingsphere, tracks, ranks and promotes interesting/appealing blog articles by measuring authentic readership behaviour in the blogosphere.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We are reposting this project due to an unfortunate situation where some logos submitted the first time around turned out to be copycatted from another site. WE DID NOT SELECT A WINNING LOGO. We asked crowdSPRING to cancel the previous logo project and allow us to resubmit this project again. We have increased the award.
We are hoping to see new submissions as well as revamps of previous submissions. The same artists who submitted logos for us the first time around are most welcome to resubmit revised versions of their logos again. Please only submit original work.
If you want to revamp our current logo, you may do so. We give you authorization. You can try things like smaller outside border, making the logo chrome, adding more gloss, 3D effect- whatever.
We also want to see new and unique ideas.
We favour circular logos since our name includes the word sphere and we tend to like modern style logos best. We want to see creative, original, and inspiring ideas! A logo that is square or in a box does not make sense for us given that our name includes the word sphere. Although we prefer circular logos, the logo itself does not necessarily have to be a sphere but it should have circles or spherical shape concepts given our name.
We want to see the name zingsphere, either inside, outside, beside or around the logo somehow. You can also use the letters ZS (you can use either upper or lower case) to represent Zingsphere inside the logo but it is not mandatory. Do NOT use zing alone as a word. You can use Z or ZS or zingsphere but never just zing to indicate the brand.
We want Zingsphere to be in lowercase letters zingsphere. We want to see the word zingsphere broken up into two colours one colour for zing and another colour for sphere.
We like 3D logos (rendered and glossy) but a 3D logo is not mandatory. We also like simple logos that are clean and sleek.
Mirroring the S from the Z and putting it next to the Z makes the ZS appear to look like a telephone and since we are not a telephone company, this will not work for us. If you mirror the Z please be careful to have it not look like a telephone.
We'd like to keep our tag line "rediscover the blogosphere" intact, however, we are not absolutely stuck on keeping it as part of the logo.
The logo MUST be shown on a WHITE background.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
To start with, our audience will be mostly bloggers, followed by blog readers. Blogger demographics indicate that roughly 65% of bloggers are male (although female bloggers are growing in number), 60% are 18-44, 75% have college degrees and 75% of bloggers consider themselves to be sincere. 59% of bloggers have been blogging for 2 years. In terms of audience by country, based on competitors stats, we expect users of our site to be 35%USA, 10%India, 10%Indonesia, 10% United Kingdom, 10% Australia, 5% Canada.
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
Favourite by far is Stumbleupon. Others we like are Firefox, Sony Ericsson, Safari, AT&T.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
A unique logo that is eye catching and memorable. Our logo must be able to work well not just on our website, but also on print, i.e. business card, letter head, etc. Must be able to print at 600 DPI.
