I've attached our current logo. It's really pretty bad because I did it myself a few years ago. :) You're going to beat it pretty easily. I just put that provocative title on this contest to get you to read this far.
I normally have very specific goals on something like this, but this time, I'm pretty open. There's a lot of flexibility on this one. Here's what I need:
1. Logo for these words: Survey Money Machine
It should be a horizontally oriented logo to conserve on vertical space. Look at the current one to see what I mean. The page has to have a slim banner vertically.
2. Should be green to keep with the current design of the site as a whole.
3. Can be fun, but not too distracting. I really just need something that looks nicer than the current one and is easier to read. You can see our current logo at http://www.surveymoneymachine.com.
4. We need a simple, text only, easily overlooked logo for the banner of the page. I say "easily overlooked" because I want their eye directed to the main headline as quickly as possible. Right now, our logo is a little hard to read and might be delaying the move of the eye to the headline.
5. If you want to have fun with it, feel free to submit a logo that has some fun action to it (like a money machine or something like that) as well as just a very plain text only logo. We can use the fun one elsewhere on the site. But this part is by no means required.
Thank you for your entry. I look forward to working with you.
