Slogan

A new type of Staffing Agency for a New Economy

What We Do

PeopleWorks is a start up staffing agency that focuses on working with college educated workers.

Industry

Consulting

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Fresh/New - we are trying to go against the grain for typical staffing agencies.
#2 - Clean - we are working hard to have a straightforward process.
#3 - Trustworthy.

Our Target Audience:

Our target audience is both job seekers and job providers. Currently, the majority of job seekers are college educated and seeking positions that pay over $50k per year. Job providers are mostly professional organizations that provide services, not manufacturing products. Our core audience values efficiency, directness, and professionalism.

Color Preferences

Colors we like include green, blue, orange

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

We really like the Clearfield Company logo found at http://drop.io/nhecwhn. In addition, we like the colors of the temp logo at http://www.mypeopleworks.com/ but the people look like a family, not a group of business people. We like the illustrated/interpretive look as opposed to photo realistic.

Really like where #3 is going and like the idea of a tree coming out of the "L" in People. Could we make the tree a little more formed (like #2) and also see some green color versions.

Getting feedback on #1 today too to provide some direction on that too.

Spoke with team - can we see #1 by leemac in orange and another in green? For #2 and #3 by charcoal - we like the idea of something growing out of the "L" but would like to evolve it away from a tree and to something else. We are brainstorming other ideas over here but more concepts would be great!

#4 by tatude: we like the colors and concept of people but would like to see people a little less "toyslike" - maybe try a more sketch approach/outline so they are a little more abstract.

leemac - thanks for the additions! getting reviewed tonight.

I apologize for the withdrawals- I am having trouble uploading the images properly- so #16 is the proper file. The logo lends itself to marketing: "Puzzled about moving to your next career..." or something like that. The puzzle figures show everything connected- but the human figure on top (rightside up) and supported. If the client wishes- the bottom left hand corner can be redone as if it was the corner of the puzzle for a cleaner look- and the figure is 'out of the box' but I think I prefer the random, uneven look of the pieces' edges.

Spoke w. the team and feed back is below:

LIKE - the font choice and colors in #13 and #12
LIKE TO SEE EVOLVED - the people icons in #12 and #4 (more of an outline of 2-3 people instead of the icon treatment used now which is now which is like the myspace.com people icons)

Getting close - went through and ranked - #89 by Wooden Bar T: can you make yours more clear - seems pixelated but we like the concept. Can you clean this submission up and maybe submit a few variations on the concept?
