Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - simple - easy to use
#2 - quality applications and service
#3 - time saving, money saving

Our Target Audience:

Small business owners, mainly service oriented and retail with a online store.

Color Preferences

Open to ideas, but blue would work well. Also like greens. Logo will go mainly on a white color background, but I'd like the logo to work well on other backgrounds as well.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The logo will be placed on the website designed for business owners. Professionalism, yet simple and modern is something I'm looking for. I'm interested in other colors too (ie: blues, greens, silvers, etc). Some example logos I like is the one at mint.com, amazon.com, and biznik.com . I would really like to go with a business Web 2.0 look. Think time saving tools.

Thanks for the entries so far. I'm not interested in anything with a desk or with a arrow in it. #5 is decent, but not quite there.

Not really interested in a reflection effect. It makes it look a little to busy.

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

Could I see some ideas without an icon, like Google's logo, amazon.com, or Facebook? I'm looking for something that is somewhat business look, but web 2.0 look. Gives the message of "Saving time".
