I'm an entrepreneur and freelance software developer.
Resumelink is an online resume posting service. Upload your resume in any format. Share it with an easy to remember URL (e.g. http://resumelink.org/your-name). Keep track of who views or downloads it. Comment or give referrals to other job seekers.
After the logo, we will be looking for web site design as well.
Resumelink is a new venture into the space of job sites such as Monster.com, Dice.com, and Careerbuilder.com. It targets job seekers in a new way: not a job posting site, but a resume posting site. We hope to alleviate the annoying job search process by helping you gain control over your resume and job prospects.
Our aim is to help people in their job search by more easily sharing their resume, gaining visibility to employers and recruiters, and working together to share referrals.
Simplicity and professionalism is the overriding theme we want to convey.
I am looking for a logo design that is clean, simple, and professional. Because the site design is not complete yet, the logo will influence the overall design. Let me know if you would also be interested in doing the full design.
My initial concept is a link to resume, illustrated by a pointer arrow clicking on a piece of paper.
I have several (very poor) sketches at http://resumelink.org/images
You can choose to look at them or not to see what I have in mind. I am also open to completely new design ideas.
I think I would like simple solid colors (max 2 + black/white) and no gradients or drop shadows (unless subtle) with a logo to the left of the brand name "resumelink" -- all lowercase (I think.)
I am open to a light-on-dark background, but probably prefer a white background.
I want something that is simple and clear enough to be recognized as a favicon, but is also pleasing at full screen size. The typical logo display will be moderately small (probably around 100px height.)
