    Firstly threads like this are not normally allowed, this is a once off which my superiors have given me special permission for. Do not take this thread as an invitation to add your own competitions, you WILL be sanctioned.

    I will personally pay $100 or a JrVIP membership for a year to the winner of this competition. There will only be one winner.

    Here is the brief - the name is 'Flip The Pancake' - the logo should be square and at least 400x400px. Its will be potentially used on a live site - and you may or may not be hired as a designer based on the level of professionalism displayed.

    The logo should indicate a degree of web commerce, while using the 'flip' similar to site/house/task flipping.

    The partners on this project have indicated the following guidelines:

    Emotions: Trust, Excitement, Confidence, Anticipation, Passion, Expertise
    Colors: Golden Brown, Yellow Red, White, Green

    You DO NOT need to utilize all of these, they are merely guidelines. The site/logo is targeted at professional bloggers and fashionistas. It should be clean, clear, and suitable for usage on all media formats, including obviously the web. Consider that it will be a community site, so potentially introduce the feel of a community. Do not produce a BST style logo; ninjas and pirates will not win this competition.

    The closing date for submissions - which should be ON THIS THREAD, is Wednesday 22nd May.

    Think of it like a site where people flip various belongings they have - kinda like eBay without the auction. I cant give too much away as i'm under an NDA.

    Zen, How about this one? I didn't add any fancy objects as you said you don't want it to look like BST designs. So I reduced the use of gradients and multi-colors.

    This is the first revision. I can do some tweaks after you share some thoughts.

    Thanks

    Looks nice but I think there's too much happening there. It also reminds me of Engadget.
