The logo should include a 2- or 3-color scheme, which we'll then utilize throughout our website [once we design that]. Since this is a website for Buffalo, NY, the obvious color schemes are for either the Buffalo Bills team (blue, red, white: http://bit.ly/cOacI0 ) or Buffalo Sabres team (blue, gold, white: http://bit.ly/dBJkYu or http://bit.ly/afCuf6 ).
I'm looking for a clean, simple, nice logo that can help build the brand.
NO FADES, FADING, FADE BACKGROUNDS.
YOUR LOGO SHOULD BE ON WHITE BACKGROUND. Feel free to put the favicon idea on there as well.
[the logo should work well on a solid color background as well -- possibly inversed colors or something]
