I am hoping to launch a successful podcast and need a great identity to go with it.
SaveOurSkills.com is all about restoring the do it yourself ethic to our culture. People should know how to fix their cars and plant a garden. We should all be less dependent upon the current systems of support in our society. This will be achieved by pursing a self reliant lifestyle.
We are planning to use ZillaPress
1 - logo
2 - icon
3 - new ZillaPress header background color (we will choose all secondary colors based on this) I am partial to natural colors such as forest green etc.
We require the items delivered in vector format such as adobe illustrator
I would like a logo which present the site as "SaveOurSkills"
This will go on a dark background color of the designers choosing.
Similarly SaveOurSkills needs an icon. The icon should be presentable on a dark or white background.
The icon does not have to incorporate any letters but could be a graphic of some sort.
An example of a cool icon is the one on the left side of this image:
Also I like the skull icon on http://fwd4.me/d6j (please do not use a skull but this is an example of a well branded site)
Please keep the icon flat. I do not wish to have the beveled effect which the twitter and facebook icons use.
Please DO NOT use any SOS metaphors such as a life raft or any sort of boat metaphor. Your design will be thrown out if you present such an option.
Please limit the icon to a few colors. If you feel you must use many colors then please present 2 options... one for web and one for print.
Think tools or "traditional skills"
