I'd like a nice clean, minimalist logo that is mostly just the word "calories.io" without the quotes. I like a little spacing between letters, but I'm not a designer, so take some liberty there. Maybe letter spacing is a dumb idea.
If there is some way to visually indicate that the "IO" part of it means "input/output" maybe with arrows or something, that would be fantastic. If you can think of a way to do this without arrows, awesome!
A bonus would be if you used a google web font, so that I could partially reproduce the logo in CSS, perhaps without any embellishments like the arrows I described. If this requirement/request would hold you back, then forget I brought it up because I don't want you to feel held back.
I am a web developer and spend most of the time coding. This is the first time I have commissioned a designer. Thanks for bearing with me. I appreciate your patience.
