How David Matthews started their logo design journey
Spreadsy is a local deal site that features one amazing deal to be used in your city everyday. Our deals are primarily focused around social activities but range from discounts off food and beverages, to spas, massages and skydiving. So basically anything!
Unlike other group buying websites (townhog.com, groupon.com, socialbuy.com) we incentivize our customers to sign up for new deals by guaranteeing them a 100% discount if they share the deal with five others who end up purchasing it. In essence, we're trying to get people to "spread" the word and we're rewarding them in the process.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is mostly men and women ages 20-35.
Here at Spreadsy we like to keep things simple. We much prefer simple and seamless to flashy and in your face. The logo will most likely be placed in the top left-hand corner of the page (see mint.com/townhog.com/groupon.com) and will be the first thing that viewers see when they visit the site.
Also, please provide the following tagline somewhere within the logo: "Local Deals Worth Spreading"
I've included an image of what I refer to as a "Web 2.0" logo (but really what do I know, I'm a business dude). I particularly like how the words appear to be suspended in air.
