My name is Dan Nickerson and I'm VP of Ideas for Infomedia Inc.
We create cutting edge iPhone applications like iFart (yes, the big one), iVote.. and a dozen others. Also run many websites, create wordpress themes and software... and blah blah.. we do a lot of stuff online.
This is a personal project and what you see at Pagellan.com now is not the service I need a logo for... Old Pagellan is about navigating pages, new Pagellan is about navigating information.
The way they navigate information has to remain secret for a couple more weeks. the secret sauce is that it's a unique way to deliver that information.
But everyone who hears the idea is blown away... so that's always good.
I'm not targeting a specific audience. It will appeal to anyone looking for information in any topic...
You can view my current logo at:
I've always liked this logo, but want to step it up a notch and am looking for fresh ideas..
The idea behind the current logo and the goal of the new logo is to emphasize a flow of information.
"Pagella means Page is Latin"
"Magellan is a world famous (albeit dead) navigator..."
Thus Pagellan is about navigating through pages of information.
I'm using the tagline "Navigate Your Life" but it's NOT essential to the logo.
I love the idea of moving pages or pages that look like sails from a ship.
I've been playing with sails that look like this....
The text of Pagellan itself should be simple and clean and the graphic should sit to the right of text.
I do not want Pagellan.com in logo, only Pagellan.
If I wanted you to draw inspiration from existing logos, here are a couple
I'm looking for more corporate than playful.
So to sum up..
Think, Pages, Sails, Information, Navigation, Flowing, Breezy, Fast, Corporate, Clean.. and most importantly.. will it look cool on a baseball cap?
The files I require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo
Thanks and I look forward to the submissions.
