Please try to use #105CB6 as the primary color of the logo (gradients are fine too).
Like Twitter, users will be able to customize the background so I need a logo that is outlined in white and that looks decent on just about any background color. Similar to the twitter logo: http://assets0.twitter.com/images/t…header.png
The logo text should be: stat.us
I'm thinking all lower case (or all upper case)
I'm open to design art on/around the logo, but the the logo should be as narrow as possible (to reduce the amount of real estate taken at the top of each page). I want to avoid any bird-related art.
Like twitter, I'd like to have a small version (like the Twitter "t") that can be used as a favicon, badge image, etc.
