Since it´s a new product and we have nothing designed so far, you´re free to let your creativity flow. There are some things I would like you to keep in mind:
EDIT: I like clever ideas of illustrating the concept. A nice font and a billiard ball is not enough!
Although it should be clear that it's about billiards and not swimming pools, play with those concepts: map marker, people/characters, travelling, location, pool table, sharing places, meeting people
Please don´t make it too rational, cold, serious, technical. The logo should be fun and motivating. Pool and snooker are games where people get together and enjoy themselves. The logo should show this.
The URL coolpoolspots.com should be incorporated into the logo. Please provide another version with the URL coolsnookerspots.com
You´re free to use the colors you would like to.
Since the logo is mainly for the website, the format should be a rectangle shape for the head area of a website. (For example like the 99designs logo.) If you have a combination of a brand icon and a logotype (again, like in 99designs), that's ok, but it's not a must.
again, you're free. I like clear, crips fonts as well as some more artificial or handdrawn fonts. It should be readable, of course.
Please provide an editable vector file, so I can make small alterations afterwards, if i would like to (ai, svg, pdf with editable paths are great). Please provide a CMYK and a RGB version. Please show how the logo will look like on a bright and on a dark background.
