We are a software development company looking to start a community for the exchange of information related to science, especially day-to-day practical information.
Our target audience is scientists, especially those that spend a lot of time in laboratories.
We are looking for a logo, favicon and new color scheme for our website, which will be an online community for scientists to exchange information and discuss science. The site will be based on stackexchange, the software that runs http://stackoverflow.com/. The design should replace the stackexchange design and make the look and feel our own.
The logo and typeface should be fairly serious, but a little playful is okay. We like the modern "web 2.0" look and feel, but are open to other styles too. We want to try to avoid a cartoon-y style.
The logo should be wider than it is high (something like 250 x 60 pixels). It also should probably include the name of the site (labtasti.cc). Feel free to get creative with the favicon.
