- Primary use of logo will be for the website. Location will be in top left corner against a light gray background a la github.com.

- Image width is not fixed but should nopt be more than 200px
- We are open to suggestions on colors, but it must be clean and understated
- prefer monotone (definitely not a full color wheel)
- A gorgeous font like the one used for github.com will likely win the contest
- Please use lowercase for the word stockbee
- We'd like to see a creative design integrated, potentially the creative use of the letter "s".
- Feel free to take cues from the github logo (see attached). We would like the logo to convey web 2.0 design aesthetic.
- The entries that are strongly influenced by the github logo will be rated higher.
- You like to incorporate the slogan/motto: Methods over Markets.
- Correction: Method Trumps Markets
The files we will require are png, jpg and layered .psd (RGB) with list of fonts used
