Can lead to more work! I have a company that focuses on web design and internet marketing services with 30+ clients. I have regular designers I outsource design to but they have not been able to come up with a logo I like yet for this website so I decided to give 99designs a try. If you do well I would love to continue our relationship and add you as one of my contract designers. My business is http://www.adaptivitypro.com
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is for a 'daily deal' type site like groupon.com. The intended audience is anyone that is looking for a great deal.
My client would like one that is a 'cartoon character' of a street light, with maybe the 'green' light on top as the head and arms coming out? He is open to any color scheme. He really likes the logo on http://bargainbee.com/. He also really likes http://hoglezoo.org in general. Some ideas of my own are the logo to include a stoplight, then maybe a few options without, or having the stoplight be the 'i' in 'light' or something? The main logo should have the text horizontal but the final product will need a 'square' version to be used on facebook, etc. Just be creative and let me know if you have any questions!
