One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Mogeek
Mogeek is the absolute best designer that I have ever worked with. I am a very difficult and demanding client and expect only the very best. He exceeded my expectations in every way. By the time we were done, I felt guilty not paying him more. If you have the good fortune of being accepted as a client by this designer, you should run, not walk, as fast as you can toward his work!

How mtrythall started their logo design journey

Summary

I need a logo that fits into a cool modern web app with a clean design. The logo should be academic focused and be friendly and appealing to all types of people. I don't want this to be stuffy, it still needs to be fun and appealing.

A suggested color pallete to go along with the logo would be great, also. I'm most likely going to work with the winning designer on future efforts.

Company name

RecStack

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I need a logo (preferrably in vector format) to give my project a professional feel. I need to put this in front of colleges and professional groups, and I don't think I can do that without a brand. While I'm decent at design, I'm never happy with my own work.

My project is a book/article recommendation tool for students and professionals researching new industries. It helps users get up to speed on topics with a nifty search technology I invented.

This tool can also be used in career planning, also.

Wants

- A simple logo that fits into a clean design
- Has some sort of icon
- Doesn't have a complicated color scheme
- Is inviting to all types of folks
- Think "smart", "collaborative", "academic", "library", "fun". Especially something fun.
- Logos I like: stackoverflow.com, technorati, dropsend, 9rules, wayfaring.com, twitter, Pownce
- Something inventive. This is an entirely new brand, feel free to adjust the casing, suggest colors, etc.
- Logo in vector format

Don't want

- Anything too over the top
- Anything that looks similar to Amazon, Facebook, or other large players in the tech industry
- Lots of color, this should be kept fairly simple
- Antique looking fonts
- Weird fonts (like LibraryThing.com *shudder*)
- Any icons that show a stack of books with a bookmark
