The logo should represent a warm but elegant environment, emitting feelings of a butterfly passing by on a summer day with flowers and green trees.
The crowd located all over the world is also important to focus on. The power of the crowd, the diversity and the knowledge that the crowd has is unique. Think of all the different and amazing ideas you come up with here.
In exploring words that seemed to fit for the feel of the logo, we came up with the following: Warm, friendly, clean, classy, possibly stylized, professional, contemporary, high end, organic.
The target audience is between 25-55 years old, that is a garden owner that has a garden that they want to get designed, or garden amateurs, garden designers and other designers who wants to join the garden design community and compete for prices, learn more about design or teach others and get credit for it. The website will be http://www.gardencrowd.com
Colors: At this time, we're somewhat partial greens and blue. The green obviously reflects the garden. But feel free to play around here. I will narrow down the color range when I feel you have found the right ones.
Fonts: Clean and streamlined - no serif fonts -more 'helvetica' types. Open to caps or lower case or combination – we’ll know it when we see it. No retro or cartoonish please.
Don't be afraid to ask questions!!! Maybe something is unclear. I will try to clearify things here below. Look in the discussion as well. There I will post my thoughts. I am really excited to see your creativity!
---- UPDATE ----
I realize now that I do not want any "curvish" styles.
