How Elliot Tabush started their logo design journey
I am creating an online service that monitors companies email servers. It tests whether they are functioning properly and if not, the user is notified. I am looking for a logo that may or may not include a catch phrase. The website is mxalerts.com but is not yet live.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am gearing this site to IT professionals and business owners. I don’t want to focus on any geographic area.
This logo is only for the website and will not be on any business cards, etc.
I want a logo with my brand name (MX Alerts) that may or may not include a catch phrase. I have not decided whether or not I want a catch phase. I guess it depends on how much I like the one you come up with.
Some of the catch phrases I came up with were:
• “Never be left without your email”
• “Need to know if your email is functioning”
• “Always knowing if your email if functioning”
• “Know before they do”
• “Simple and it works”
• “Simple + effective monitoring”
• “Email monitoring made simple”
The first few are too long but I wrote them so you can get an idea of what I’m looking for. I want it to be short and geared towards simplicity and effectiveness.
I do not have any requirements on the colors you should use. The design for the website is not complete so if I like the colors you use we might use those colors for the whole site.
The logo will most probably be located in the left hand corner of the site but you may also fit it to stretch across the top of the page.
