Primary requirement: The HotZebra.com logo can be either zebra or hot, or ideally, but not necessarily, Hot-Zebra - the interpretation of this is on the designers imagination.
One possibility is to choose an artistic approach with the zebra stripes serving as a motif. A raw example of a starting point may be something like this: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_clo…id=3733635
The other approach is quite the opposite, perhaps use a funny zebra cartoon and make it somehow "hot". Again, just a very basic example:
http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-il…banner.php Obviously, the Zebra here is not very hot :-)
The logo should include the HotZebra.com writing. However, it should be possible to use the logo also without this text. Ideally, the HotZebra.com text should be integrated into the logo in a way that it can easily be cut-out.
The logo should have a square or a horizontal rectangle shape. It should be clearly displayed in resolution of about 150*100 pixels. Also, it should look attractive when used on other marketing materials, such as printed ads, t-shirts, mugs …
Any instructions abowe are only secondary to the primary requirement!
