vHow.info is a video site for people to share their knowledge and skills. We're looking for a shiny and colorful logo to show off that we're new and fun, yet simple and easy to use.
We are open to all creative ideas, but here are some of our initial design thoughts:
1) Because we're a .INFO domain, the ".info" should be part of the logo
2) Logo should have the Web 2.0 "shiny" reflection on the text. However we do NOT want to have the bottom inverse fading reflection (because that's so common nowadays)
3) Logo text should NOT be all on a straight line (do offsets like eBay's logo, or place the text on a curve)
4) Use of color would emphasis fun, but we don't want the colors to be too overpowering (so pastels?... definitely not flourescent-type colors)
The winner will go on to design our website (uncoded), so submissions should INCLUDE a website mockup. As our website is not up (and you'd actually be designing the layout!) please use YouTube's home page as the basis of the mock webpage. So that you'd understand why we're asking for this in a logo contest: we'd like to see how you'd design complementary buttons, text boxes, borders, etc to match the logo.
