My name is Dustin, I've created a web 2.0 application for budgeting located at http://inzolo.com. I've basically taken the header of a wordpress blog theme to use as a logo for now, but I need something unique.
Anyone trying to get a handle on their finances. Male & Female ages 16-60.
Inzolo is an african tribal language (Xhosa) word that means peace or tranquility. The budget system is modeled very closely after Dave Ramsey's teachings in financial peace university. He often speaks of "Gazelle intensity" when paying off debt. I was thinking of having an african tree (like the acacia - http://images.google.com/images?q=acacia in front of a big sunset with a gazelle or springbok sitting in the grass relaxing because there are no cheetah's around. Do you think that is too much for a logo? Well, I'm interested to see artist interpretations of the concept. I'm also open to other ideas if you have them.
I want the logo to be a vector image so I can make it BIG if I need to.
Sorry prize amount is a little low. I can also the winner free lifetime membership to the site and free hosting on my VPS server if you'd like. I'll also give you credit on the site to help promote YOU.
Thanks in advance to all who enter the contest!
** UPDATE **
Interesting timing that this article was posted this morning: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/200…go-design/
I would also be looking at what the logo might look like in grayscale and black and white.
