How TheHuntingMap started their logo design journey
TheHuntingMap.com is a new outdoor and hunting social website featuring a Google Maps-based mapping module. We are first and foremost avid outdoorsmen that want to share the joy of being outdoors and understanding wildlife. This makes for a better hunting experience!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is in-line with the audience of the big box outfitters like Cabelas, Bass Pro, VersusCountry, and the Outdoor Channel.
The website will promote being outdoors, connecting with other hunters, and being a better conservationist. The current focus wildlife is land mammals (deer, elk, etc).
We need a logo that is unique and includes a nature or hunting related icon that can stand alone or in conjunction with the typographic element. Please include the Name of the Website (The Hunting Map). We like the attached logo for its simplicity and message.
Also needed (though not required) are ideas for stand-alone icons that will be used as map markers. We intend to have different icons for different wildlife (example white-tail deer) that will work well with the main logo.
