The logo needs to have the text "CardCow.com" in it and be easy
to read. The tagline "Vintage Postcards & Collectibles" can probably
be added to any logo, so I'm not too worried about incorporating that.
The end deliverable should be a scalable vector format (Adobe Illustrator preferred).
I'm really not sure about colors - a B&W logo may be fine. I'd
probably stay away from anything too bright or flashy.
I'm open to any design ideas, but some thoughts I had were the following:
1. Something similar to the current logo. I just did that very
quickly several years ago when I launched the site, but a cow
silhouette like that could still look pretty nice. Maybe something a
little more "angular" like the white apes logo you did.
2. Something a little more cartoon-ish. Still a side profile of a
cow, but with its head turned grinning at you. I'm thinking something
like the Dead Milkmen, but more refined.
3. A more "round" logo - with just a cow's head/snout looking at you.
I really like this picture:
I think you could probably do some rounded text for a circular logo
around a cool cow head graphic that might look good.
