Hi, call me NeilO. I started a two-fold project called FanSiter that needs a crisp, unique logo designed. One part of FanSiter is an e-zine-like WordPress blog which has daily posts spotlighting individual things in various categories (celebrities, games, musicians, etc.); like mini-biographies. The other part is a new platform I'm developing for the creation of fansites, hence where the name FanSite[r] (as in "fansite creator") came from.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
My thought on the audience is split between the random web visitor and other web masters. I'd like the logo designed to be something I can use for little image "badges" for trading with other websites. For example, I am considering a "Fansite of the Day" showcase where I would give that site an image button to link back to the blog.
Chinese fan: I have to mention this first and foremost. I absolutely love those fold-out, hand-held fans and I really want it to be a core part of the design.
Green, black, and white primary colors. These happened to be the ones used for text in the WP template I chose, take a look at the header text above the banner graphic: http://fansiter.com/
"Widescreen". The design will need to be clipped somehow to fit in a square for favicon/blavatar, but its most prominent usage will be in the header graphic on the blog and 16:9'ish buttons for exchanging with webmasters.
