How The Top 10 Place started their logo design journey
The Top 10 Place.com
Ive had a little website project running for a couple of years, and just never seem to get time to improve it. Finally the time has come. The existing concept and site can be found at http://www.itop3.com. Please take a look (yes I know it looks awful!) That what we need to change... along with the name. If you watch the short flash movie at the top of the screen it will give you a good idea of what the sites all about.
Anyone can set-up their own Top 10 subject or vote in other peoples top 10 subjects. It was called itop3 because you get 3 votes in each Top 10 subject. Everything from favourite actors or actresses to your opinion on the best Starbucks coffee!
The site is just a bit of fun, and the idea is to connect people with similar interests in debate. As well as provide ultimate top 10 lists using the wisdom of crowds.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The website is for anyone, it takes a mass subject like Top 10's and what's your favourite..... But makes it quite niche. Different age groups, genders, and demographics will be attracted to different subjects.
It’s also just for fun, but at the same time can hopefully become a good source of information for those making purchasing decisions. Top 10 Digital cameras under 200 USD, if you’re looking for a digital camera, hopefully my site will become invaluable.
As the site is designed to drive discussion and community feel, I guess the majority of users will be from the 18 to 35 age group. People who have purchasing decisions to make who are after solid information from a non biased community.
Something that says fun, but also trustworthy and honest opinion. Not to stuffy and formal, but at the same time not so wacky it can’t be taken seriously. If you can incorporate the concept of voting, or charts or wisdom of crowds in it that would be great. Also as the new site is called http://www.thetop10place.com I wonder if we should place emphasis on 'The' for example to show that it’s the only one, the best source THE only site. kind of like when people say "THE one and only blah blah"
2. Attached is a PSD of how the new web site top 10 subject page will look. As you can see the colours are a bit of a mess. So I need a new colour palette. I don’t know if it’s better to change the PSD file first and figure out the colours then make the logo or make the logo and fit the design to that colour palette. I'll let you decide.
I quite like the purple and dark blue of the buttons.
1. New logo in PSD & EPS or vector.
2. The uploaded PSD returned with the new colours on the included page.
I’m also interested in any comments you have about the attached PSD page. Please feel free to let me know what you think.
