Hello talented designers of the world!
My name is Brandon and I come to you as the owner and creator of TheTicketsGuide.com. What I intend to do with my site is simple: I want to help teach thousands of people how to become online ticket brokers by showing them how brokers like myself buy and sell concert tickets online. I will do this by 1) writing a blog and 2) selling an 80-page eBook, fully loaded with high-quality images and step-by-step tutorials.
The personality of the logo I'm looking for, above all, is trustworthy. Starting a ticket brokering business takes a ton of time and effort and I want my customers to see my logo and IMMEDIATELY feel like they are in good hands.
Here is my #1 competitor:
Try to distinguish my logo from his, both in design and in color scheme.
My target audience will be mostly male, 25-40 years old. They will reach my site usually through a google search for "How to become a ticket broker." When designing your logos, please keep that in mind. My customers will be looking for reliable information and your logo will be the first thing they see.
My site will eventually have a feature area with this shade of blue:
I'd like to see the logo incorporate the shade of blue that's in the above image. The logo should also take up one line. Please do not submit logos that take up 2 (or more) lines. So:
I need the logo to look immediately appealing. Simple, modern, and to-the-point.
The logo should say "The Tickets Guide." Spacing is up to you (e.g. TheTicketsGuide is fine as long as its creative) and NOT "theticketsguide.com. You can add an image before, after, or within the words. This is also up to you.
Check out my site (http://www.theticketsguide.com) to see where the logo will be placed (I have an ugly placeholder there in the meantime...also please ignore the iPad...my site has nothing to do with the iPad).
Here are some of my inspiration sites and logos:
The logo should be wider than it is tall since it will go up at the top, like the woothemes logo.
Thank you so much! Looking forward to your designs!
