Kangaroo.com.au is an Australian web guide with a small but loyal following. It's a quick reference to the most popular Australian websites. We have expansion plans and need a logo with a bit of character to improve our branding.
Currently the target audience is Australians looking for the best local websites. But our expansion plans will broaden the audience globally to cater for people from other countries wishing to find out more about the best of Australia: where to go, what to see, what to do, etc. So the logo should have a global appeal.
We'd like a logo that includes a cartoon or caraciture face of a Kangaroo with a bit of attitude. Perhaps it might be wearing sunglasses or something like that.
It should also include either the word "Kangaroo" or "Kangaroo.com.au" (without the brackets).
The logo should look good on the web and in print. For example on business cards.
No particular color scheme is required, although bright is probably preferred.
Preferably can be reproduced on a white or colored background.
Font must be legible: no goofy scripts and not too small.
We will need all source files in all major formats, including vector design. We need to have the ability to alter colors at will and provide additional formatting at will.
No, boring "typed it in photoshop" text please.
Must contain ONLY original work (no reuse of third-party material).
Winner must transfer the copyright for the created artwork.
