We are launching a new community based website for Irish people called scratcher.ie
The website is in early stage development right now and not yet online.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Scratcher.ie will be an online community for people in Ireland, targeted particularly at the unemployed. It will be a social networking site where people create a profile, use a forum, message each other and most importantly "Skill Swap".
In their profile users include skills they can offer others and skills they have a need for someone else to provide - they can then "Skill Swap"
A painter and decorator needs a simple website built to advertise his business online
A web designer is looking to get his house painted.
We match them and let them "Skill Swap". They complete the jobs for each other for no cost. A return to bartering of skills.
In Ireland "scratcher" or "being on the scratcher" is a slang term for unemployment.
We are looking for a logo which reflects our audience - Irish people who may or may not be employed but have a skill they can offer to complete a job for another person.
The logo should incorporate our name "scratcher.ie".
It should be eye catching
It should be innovative
Things we would like to see conveyed include:
Ps. we are not looking for any cliche or stereotyped images of Ireland which includes leprechauns, shamrocks, tri-colours, pints of Guinness, etc....
