Eastblvd.com is a community message board for Central Alabama. It is a free general discussion board for local residents. The name comes from the section of road known for its proximity to the most popular shopping areas in the city.
Our primary audience will be adults between the ages of 18-35 attending institutions of higher learning. The city (of approx. 225k) is by all means a college town; consisting of no less than 8 college/university campuses within the city limits. Approximately 28% of the population has a Bachelors degree or above.
Since the website is named for a popular thoroughfare; the logo should be modeled after green and white street sign. The logo should appeal to college students, and should follow a hip hop theme - it needs to be readable; use original graphics (w/ limited use of stock graphics); be colorful; use of artistic detail (e.g.,pixel art, cartoon characters, etc....) is a plus. IN OTHER WORDS, THE LOGO MUST "POP" OF THE SCREEN! Visual appeal to a student audience is a must.
The logo will be displayed on a message board running the Vanilla Forums software (http://vanillaforums.org/).
+ Incorporate "Street Sign" theme
+ Colorful. The base colors for sign are white/green, but feel free to expand.
+ Pixel Art elements are welcome
+ Cartoons elements are welcome
- If it looks like it came from a stock logo site - it's probably not going to be picked.
