• Simple, clean, elegant, modern yet timeless.
• I'd open to seeing designs with the name BidSimple OR my business name all in lower case (bidsimple).
• I am drawn to rich earth tones (chocolate browns, mossy greens, mustard yellow). I also love retro 70's colors.
• Open to seeing a logo in patriotic colors although I’m not a huge fan of primary colors.
• No more than 3 colors total.
• Must appeal to both men and women, both creative types and very conservative people
• No template looking logos!! Fresh ideas only.
• We would like to express that public opportunities are available to all industries.
• Font must be legible (no goofy script and not too small)
• Visually balanced
• Preferably can be reproduced on a white or colored background
• Ability to reproduce in all sizes
• Looks good on a fax, business card, flyer, or on a billboard
• Vector and eps file format
• Able to resize it at any size without distortion
• I would love a truly unique business card … one that will cause people to really look at the card both front and back, rather than throwing it into their purse or pocket without a second glance.
• "unique" meaning something other than a 2 x 3-1/2 standard size.
• Maybe something that looks like a sealed label because, in my world, sealed bids are normally required. (This is just an idea. Please don't think that I won't love other designs because I definitely will!!). I really liked the designs here, for example: http://99designs.com/contests/24578
• However, on the flip side of things, I don’t want to have to pay a freakin' fortune to have the business cards printed, so I’d like to see some standard card designs as well. I do feel the logo in and of itself should get someone's attention, plus the printing could be done in a portrait style fashion, rather than the standard landscape as well.
• I envision printing on front and back of the card. On one side, just the logo and maybe some basic contact information. On the flip side, listing:
Then along the bottom, side or top:
bid leads .. proposal writing .. training .. HUB & vendor applications
It doesn't have to be in the above order. It doesn't even have to be all on one line
