Get Up and Globe
We are Skott & Shawna, a fun loving couple...recently married and we're going on the ultimate honeymoon-a one year, round the world journey. The travel blog will be used to keep friends and family up to date with our adventures...and to communicate with other people in the travel industry. We want our blog to look professional enough that we could make a bit of cash with it. We will likely travel to at least 5 continents and visit a wide variety of countries, including those that would be considered more "off the beaten path" (Bangladesh, Ghana, Lebanon). We will like be spending the most time in Latin America, Africa, and SE Asia, with less time in Western Europe/US/Australia. We're thinking that a lot of our travel will be overland as opposed to flying in order to see more of the country. We want the trip to be really diverse. Some of the activities we hope to do include: learning Spanish in Guatemala, volunteering, hiking, biking, boating, scuba diving, living with host families, cooking, drinking, exploring! This logo would be used for our website which is http://www.getupandglobe.com.
We'll be backpacking with just one bag each! We're terrible at directions!! haha
We're athletic. We like activity. We love coffee. We aspire to live and overseas. We love red wine. We are excited to try some foods from around the world!
We've lived in Australia, Ghana & Finland as individuals before.
The blog will essentially be built for 3 groups of people:
1) Family & friends;
2) Other world travelers/travel bloggers out there;
3) Other people looking to plan an extensive RTW trip that may use us as a resource.
Some of the words we thought of when we envisioned a logo: fun, colourful, rugged, organic, asymetrical, simple (without being boring), not too corporate. It just feels like there should be a globe built in within the logo somewhere somehow. Unless you have better ideas of course!
We've got a few submissions in, and there are some great ones, but would also like to experiment a bit with a chunkier font...see http://www.marriedwithluggage.com or
http://www.yeararoundtheworld.com/ would be examples of what I am thinking?
-it probably should have a globe or a world in it
-we like colour. we want something that will catch people's attention but still isn't too cartoony or goofy.
-nothing "corporate". some of the ready made logos on this site under the search word "travel" seem more appropriate for a travel agency, not a young traveling couple.
-we have lots of energy and have lots of fun together. people know us for being vibrant.
-the words 'tiki' and 'wild' come to mind a bit too, but don't restrict yourself to those adjectives only
-the logo would hopefully get us started with a colour theme for our word press blog. pink is out...plain black and white is out. Let's see some colour!
We included some photos so you can see us....we do not want these pictures to be used as part of the logo. They are more to just give you an idea of who we are. Sorry for any confusion.
****Last few hours**** even if you have submitted a cool logo already, feel free to throw in another crazy, totally different concept (increase your odds!!!)
