Rubydu http://www.rubydu.com (not yet live)
We’re a brand new, fun, one-stop shopping global e-commerce marketplace. We provide the tools for anyone to set up their own online shop and sell virtually anything from electronics, video games, and cell phones, to funky, hip clothing and accessories, jewelry, beauty products and gifts in an online “community” format.
Mostly 18-39 year olds, both men and women who are very Internet savvy but who don’t want to set up their own e-commerce web site from scratch.
We envision the Rubydu icon to be a cartoon character. The logo needs to be fun and whimsical. We like many of the futuristic Japanese and Korean cartoon characters such as Astro Boy, the Powerpuff Girls, Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Ren & Stimpy. It needs to be dynamic-looking but not over complicated. It needs to be completely unique. It needs to be “endearing” and memorable. If you do an action figure we prefer it to have a somewhat androgenous look. We want the logo text to be extremely clean, simple and bold. We would like strong use of the color ruby red. The final file needs to be in vector format.
