What We Do

Create your mobile application online in a minute ("1 minute mobile app"), thanks to our leading mobile application platform mobc3 (so you can put in, optionally, "powered by mobc3" as part of the logo)

1minapp, thanks to mobc3, allows to create single-source (write once, deploy on all mobile devices), industry-standard applications + mobile sites, optimized for all smartphones (iPhones, Android, BlackBerry, etc..) and for more than 10.000 legacy (older) mobile devices. So with 1minapp you can creat your mobile presence online easily, inexpensively and in a snap! (though maybe in a bit more time than just one minute... :)

Industry

Internet

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Unique and advanced technology
#2 - Freedom, capability of getting rid of the complexity of the many mobile device specific development implementations (the payoff of the mobc3 platform which is the basis of 1minapp is "make your ideas fly")
#3 - Ease of implementation: a simple and stramlined process online, via an immediate web interface

Our Target Audience:

Marketing managers (for companies willing to develop their own mobile application / mobile site), media publishers (for mobile extensions of their web sites), majors of municipalities (for city mobile channels).

Well educated, mostly males, distributed worldwide but especially in US, Europe and South America

Color Preferences

Suggestion (but we're open!)
blue, gray, orange, but also black for written text; maybe it's a good idea to reuse the colors of the mobc3 logo (www.mobc3.com), but you can also propose a completely different set
As for the font we like VAG Rounded to maintain consistency with the mobc3 logo http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/vag-rounded/ e.g. in bold

As an alternative we really like Myriad Pro and we might consider a redesign of the mobc3 logo accordingly.

Our technology platform on top of which 1minapp is based is in fact mobc3; so it would be nice to eventually keep mobc3 logo colors or at least the blue used for the "3" of the mobc3 logo.

The logo can be designed for 1minapp or 1minapp.com

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Just thinking that 1minapp can also be oneminapp, so three words, of three letters each... 3x3 that can be a matrix, a cube, a 1minapp could be represented as a box, simple, easy, yet authoritative... or the words could be used to create a "1"...

Also since 1minapp supports a component-based design of the mobile application (you choose layout and colors but also modules such as: product catalog, news feed, point of sales locator, etc.) it would be interesting to develop a "lego" style metaphor, like in www.mobc3.com... but up to you... hope you have better creative ideas then me :) you are the creative mind!

Hi Designers,

There is a team that will vote on your proposals and all will be considered. You started doing a great job. Please submit your entries soon, as we need more and fresh ideas!

We have great plans for this logo as it will be used 1minapp: the most relevant application of today's widely used mobile application platform: www.mobc3.com.

Please review the brief. I will provide timely feedback as much as I can until judging. The team will be made of Marketing Professionals and Magazine Graphic Artist. Become part of a big story!

More details of my feedback are in the ongoing discussions here and with the respective designers.

PS
Additional 50 USD will be given to you as a bonus in case of "tears effect", which means that your results and dedication are so impressive that I cry for joy :)

The service:

Target:

USP:

2 Freedom (the platform payoff which is the basis of 1minapp is "make your ideas fly"
3 Ease of implementation (a simple process online, via web interface)

The logo can be designed for 1minapp or 1minapp.com; also oneminapp is fine if you have a particularly clever idea, but if possible I's prefer to have the initial 1 as a number: 1minapp

C'mon Designers!

Less than 12 hours left, some great pieces but still no definitely convincing idea...

There's room for improvement for the current proposals and also need for some fresh ideas... Please, don't wait the very last minute to put on the table your definitive designs, as it would be too late...

If the case send me your ideas for evaluation privately... but as you are a great and fair community of admired professionals, the best way to go is play your cards to the table now! ;)
