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 preferenceset started their logo design journey

Summary

Update: Big update in comments

I'm looking for a logo for a new social website that focuses on stories related to political campaigns or charitable causes. The logo should have a modern, web trendy yet reputable and professional logo.

UPDATE 2: I'm beginning to be more aggressive with the eliminations. Some good designs have come through, though I continue to give feedback. I would like to be able to pick a winner by tomorrow. I have a presentation to give on Thursday evening (USA - EST), so I will absolutely not be extending the contest beyond then and will only extend it an extra day until then if it is absolutely necessary for some people to get revisions in. At this point I am not looking for new submissions (though they are always welcome) - just letting people put the final touches on their works. Thanks again to everyone for their hard work!

UPDATE 3: Some of you seem interested in having more time, but I would rather not extend the contest another full day. It doesn't seem fair to everyone who has been working hard from the beginning. That being said, since I won't be able to make a decision until this evening anyway, and since I have asked for a few final revisions from people, I will be accepting revisions until 10:00 PM tonight (USA Eastern Standard - I believe that is 4:00 UTC tomorrow).

Company name

Contribune

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

Update: I'll be giving lots of quick feedback for all submissions. This is my first contest, but I'll do anything I can to help designers! Just let me know.

Contribune is a site focused on spreading the stories that cause people to contribute to political campaigns or charitable causes. The name is a portmanteau of the words "contribute" and "tribune".

The logo should be warm and inviting, but with a certain tech edginess. Ultimately, as a new site, it will need to seem trustworthy and reputable. Ideally a 45 year old mother of two should be as excited to see it as a web savy 20 something new media professional.

The site has the unique feature of ranking stories based on actual money being donated to causes. Incorporation of this donating concept, as well as the ranking and news elements is idea. Please don't use any currency signs, though. Something more subtle and less monetary would be required.

I've provided an example of the sites current design at this link: http://www.meneyung.com/design-example.jpg (may not be up immediately, check back if not)

While the feel of the top text and logo can change, please attempt to fit with the rest of the site. Ignore the "draft" icon.

Colors are:
#bee0f3, #b5dcf1, #5dacdc - #2795d1, #ffffff, #cccccc, #e4e3e1, #b7b7b7, #222222, #ff0000

Drop shadow in photoshop:
Multiply #000000, Opacity 62%, Angle 132, Distance 2, Spread 0, Size 1, standard angle contour, no aa, 0% noise

Wants

- Must incorporate the "Contribune" name.
- Must match current site color scheme of blues, white and black and some red (don't need to use all colors)
- Must be viewable on mixed blue background and also on white (multiple versions ok)
- If using drop shadows, match to existing drop shadows on the site (if you think a different shadow would look better, go for it, but keep in mind the existing ones on the site)
- Simplicity
- Tagline underneath (or where ever makes sense, really - text of tagline doesn't matter)
- Full layered EPS, AI or PSD

Don't want

- Nothing excessively visually complex
- No chrome or metal looks
- No excessive glossiness
- No dollar signs or other currency signs
