I am a teacher gone business woman...I have just started my own company and am currently developing a website for teachers and educators. This website aims to make Teachers' lives easier, and will be the hub of the future for all educators, pre-school through college!
Your probably asking...so what is this? Well, it is an application that is similar (not identical) to Facebook or LinkedIn, but for Teachers. The site will be a customizable homepage for each user, and will incorporate many of the features used on these social networking sites, such as staying connected to various "groups", such as everyone in their school, department, etc. Only educators will be allowed to sign up for this site...everybody is verified, everything is secure and legit. I want each of my users to feel a sense of community, while at the same time, a sense of having their own identity, their own homepage, that they control.
I have put the price at $550 because there are 2 parts to this project. This is my first time on 99 Designs, so I'm not exactly sure that I entered into the correct category, which is why I chose the Custom Logo option. Through this process I would appreciate any and all recommendations, comments, concerns, etc., I will give feedback regularly and will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible!
Here are the 2 parts:
1. Banner Logo - To be placed at the top of every page of this website, obviously using the name TeacherShare.com
*I have no particular font or color schemes yet, so this will set the tone for the rest of the site.
*For example, this could be the individual letters set in puzzle pieces...sorry I'm not very creative, which is why I came to you!
2. Smaller Logo - I would also like a matching smaller logo that abbreviates TeacherShare.com or a symbol of TeacherShare.com
*More like a Brand Logo. This smaller icon might be used on say a business card, as a link, at the bottom of the page, etc.
These 2 parts should reflect the same general theme you decide to go with and should be created so that the logos can be manipulated (especially size, without distortion) by me or any other web designer.
Ok, I think that's a start! Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing this process unfold! Again, please feel free to contact me anytime.
