We have attached our current logo. We are looking for something that stands out more in the web 2.0 / 3.0 world. Our current logo was designed by a programmer, and although it's not too bad, it needs help. Feel free to work on the existing concept, or ideally start from scratch.
The "Checkmark and Calendar" has been a natural part of our logo but not entirely necessary. Our initial focus at launch was on accommodation (eg a small resort) -- thus the 'Check-In / Frontdesk'. Although this still represents a large amount of our customer base, we have since seen wide adoption by travel and tour operators (eg zip line, city tours), as well as rentals (eg kayak, bikes).
Calendar, Reservation, Adventure, Date. E-commerce, Booking, Business, Check-in,
Please review our home page to get a good idea of who we, and our existing brand: http://www.checkfront.com
Our current slogan is "Smart, Simple Online Booking System".
IMPORTANT: We want a logo that looks good as a square icon (think mobile apps). When submitting a design, please also include an icon version @ 64px. The icon doesn't need to include the company name.
Other Design Request:
No cartoon characters, no basic clip-art.
Please keep any perspective and lighting "head-on".
We very much appreciate your time and efforts. Feel free to ask any questions. Good luck!
BONUS: We'll ship the winning designer a t-shirt with the new logo on it!
Notice: This competition is a re-launch, as the winning design was found to be unoriginal work. Please make sure your designs are original - we will be checking!
