We need a logo for our new company named Bitalo. We don't have a special picture in mind yet. This is why we would like to start this design contest.
The name Bitalo is the fusion of two words: Bitcoin (the crypto-currency) and Talo (a Finnish word meaning “house”).
Here are a few characteristics that should be reflected in the logo design.
The order is (1) most important (5) less important:
(1) Is in color (trustworthy color scheme)
(2) Has to do with "revolution", "innovation", and "change": Our approach regarding the security of the Bitcoin wallet of our users is truly unique (even if our servers are breached nobody can steal the money). Then the idea of a peer-to-peer exchange platform where you can exchange bitcoins for fiat money, but also goods, and services, and all of this without fearing scammers is something truly unique in the Bitcoin world. Thus the characteristics of the logo should also reflect these 2 points.
(3) The symbol of the Bitcoin crypto-currency could, but is *not* mandatory, be in some way present in our logo. You can rearrange it in any way in order to suit our needs (more details about the Bitcoin symbol are available at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_symbol and https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Promotional_graphics)
(4) Gives a feeling of safety
(5) The concept that Bitalo is “The safe house for Bitcoin-related peer-to-peer exchanges. You can safely store them, and also trade them for fiat money, goods, or services, without fearing scammers”
We agreed that we don't want something overly complicated, something simple and easily remembered is good.
