    Hello,

    It's about time I get started developing a domain I've had for nearly a year. But first, we need a professional logo!

    Type of Contest: Logo design

    Prize: USD $50, Paypal.

    Contest End Date & Time: December 20th, 2011 or until a suitable logo design is found.

    Size Requirements: One design for main logo (in PSD format for resizing) and a smaller, more abbreviated logo.

    Color Requirements: Professional, but be creative! Since it's a site about the stock market, I'm sure GREEN would play an important role!

    Information: The site will be a discussion hub relating to the US Stock Markets (possibly other markets in the future).

    I would really like the use of words and a icon of some sort. You can check out the site now for the logo I paid $10 for, but I'm just not too happy with it.

    My website is located at - http://www.stockforums.com



    Thanks everyone!

    Nice start! I'm really looking for something a little more modern or "web 2.0". Rounded letters and corners would be killer!

    Can you post a link to some web 2.0 logos you like? I only ask because it's common for people to have different opinions on what web 2.0 is & I just want to make sure we are all on the same page. :)

    Thanks,

    scorpionagency: I think the icon seems a little too busy and the font is a little bulky. The green and blue are my favorite of the ones you posted.

    matt0216: Not a bad start, but it just seems a little too much like the design I already have.



    Don't be afraid to use an off-the-wall font! Honestly, my favorite design from the link I posted was the DealADay one. The font is fantastic, the color scheme is spot on, and it's pure simplicity is fantastic. If we can somehow use those aspects into this design, it would be simply perfect!

    That's not bad! It is a little like the one I already have, but I think we could make it work.

    Could you use a little more abstract font (Kinda like the logo at www.dealaday.co.nz )? Also, could you touch up the graph a little to make it look more like an "M"? Maybe even carry out the graph below the text and above it (possibly behind the "u" and "s")?

    Sorry if none of that made sense... LOL!

    Waardii: Thanks for making the adjustment. The "S" at the end just looks out of place to me for some reason... I'm really digging the font though! Maybe try utilizing the graph in a different way. Use the regular font for the "m" and maybe put the graph somewhere else?


    sheryonline: I'm liking the style, but the font is a little too "bubbly". The icon on the first one, to me, looks like buildings so I'm not really understanding what it's trying to represent. I like the second icon better (the graph made to look like a word bubble). Could you do rounded corners on the graph and maybe change up the font a bit?



    Thanks for those who have made adjustments! Keep the submissions coming!

    Waardii: It's coming along nicely! Very nice how you used the graphing in the lettering! Could you possibly make the word "Stock" a different shade of green? And possibly use a gradient?

    VirginArt:
    I'm digging it! Could you maybe make the reflection a little smaller? I'm loving the icon! Also, could you use a gray color instead of the blue?

    sheryonline: It does look better with the rounded corners on the graph. However, I think it may be a little too large.



    Keep the submissions coming! The contest still has a couple more days!

    Thank you for the feedback!

    As well as a light background you can see what it looks like on a dark background too.

    nguyen_huy_hai: Not a bad design! I'm actually liking the second one the best (the icon looks better IMO). Could you try a few different color schemes?
