I'm a one-person operation designing and developing racehive.com. racehive.com will list events and provide an online entry facility for race organisers. Triathlon is one of my hobbies so I feel (hope) that I can deliver what I think is missing for athletes in Ireland right now.
Adults who run/bike/swim/do other sports. Initial audience will be based in Ireland - but I've no real desire to see Irish flags in the design :-)
Only the word "racehive" should appear - i.e. no ".com" suffix.
Underscores/swooshes are ok, but not necessary - just clarifying in case my previous sentence appeared overly limiting.
The name came from the idea of a "bee-hive", I've a hexagonal dotting of the "i" in "hive" in my 5-minute attempt (don't laugh when you see it, ok do :-).
The range of sports being listed probably excludes the use of any sporting images/ideas.
Webpage background behind the logo - undecided as yet. Probably white, but I am/will consider black/dark gray or even dark orange/red as the background for a top-banner where the logo will appear.
Colours: Have been thinking in terms of orange, yellow, red. Obviously neutral colors like black/gray can be used too. Ordinarily love blue as a colour but haven't mentally tied it to a hive/this site - but that's just my narrow focus and am open to ideas.
