The demographics of our audience is fairly distributed, as we have hobbies for all types of people (all ages, both genders, active versus non active). Therefore I am not looking for a logo design that is targeted to any demographic but a logo design that appeals to most people.
I am looking for a logo for "Discover A Hobby" that makes our future site look professional. I dont like very complex and confusing logos, I prefer to have something more simple and subtle. For example I like simple logos like youtube, skype, facebook.
I am open to having hobby related images and shapes in the logo, but given our hobbies are so varied across all categories (sports, spiritual, dancing, arts) I would be careful to not lead our users into thinking we only specialize in certain hobbies.
As mentioned above, use the new website design and color scheme to think about the new logo design. The only thing that will be changed before the launch of the new site is the removal of the "hobby map" text with the pointing finger at the top of the website (I dont like the finger / hand).
