Best Free Software
We find the best free shareware and freeware software titles on the net and feature them in an online directory, allowing users to download them free of charge.
We're all about promoting quality and simplicity of use.
We're targeting users who want quality software but don't have the budget to spend money on expensive software. They may not be super computer savvy either.
They are on the web looking for the 'best' of a particular type of software. We want to help them find that on our site.
I need a logo that can be layed out horizontally without taking too much vertical space.
Creative use of iconography / color may be a plus as the name is generic otherwise. We need to make sure the visual makes up for the boringness of the name. Since this site will be the parent directory for many different categories of software, perhaps use of icons may be appropriate. Some categories will include.. anti virus software, music software, dvd burning software. Some obvious icons to consider download icon, disk icon, computer icon. If you think of something else, please feel free to experiment!
Needs to be exportable to high quality png with layers in tact. Would be preferable if design will work on a white background but can also be transparent for different bg.
May want to experiment with configuration of words: stacked, side by side etc...
