We've received some cool submissions so far. The one's we like have a sense of 'discovery' to them (a key hole, subtle shading, etc.) and involve either silhouettes of the city and/or people. Some of the brand/emotional elements we are looking for draw on:
1. Wizard of Oz or Secret Garden type exploration (color, roads, friends, etc.)
2. A vibrant city/buildings.
3. Strong serif text like Bookman Old Style, etc.
Ultimately we are looking for something where the 'city' can be captured in a small image and the words themselves fit well alongside them. Feel free to experiment with color.
Requirements: WIll need both black and white versions of the logo. Vector graphics. Ability to have the city name added in a way that fits with the logo.
Post questions in the comments if you have them. The winning design will have the feel of a lonely planet with a bit more flair.
