As discussed it is a set of business/marketing tools that can be used to leverage the power of twitter for business (and lesser extent personal use) so needs to convey professionalism, expertise, knowledge with slick presentation through out.
As related directly to Twitter as a tool, something that also ti in/embraces that design elements (without blatantly ripping off/copying same) makes sense.
Need a logo for use on website/marketing materials, as well as the icon part of same easily used for things such as Twitter avatar, and envisage a requirement for merchandise into the future as well so needs to convert easily to apparel etc.
I'll be available as much as possible to give ongoing updates and advice/commentary, and will also use the following star rating system to give the designers as much feedback as possible and will use the following star rating system to assist and guide you:
1 star - Missed the mark completely
2 star - ok - some useful work
3 star - Not bad, but will need revising
4 star - On right track - under consideration
5 star - Made final selection group - well done!!
