It’s not strictly necessary to rebrand bloggingportal, but everyone I’ve spoken to thinks it’s a good idea, so why not have a little competition?
This is more about coming up with a neat idea than holding a design competition yet. For example, here’s an idea sketched out on the metro using my trusty Note2:
Got a better idea? Thank goodness, send it in. Each should include:
- a name (in my case it’s “Hashtag Europe”)
- a tagline (“What are they saying?”)
- a logo (optional)
Together they should encapsulate what the rebooted site should do: help people find online opinions about the EU (see previous posts if you’re new).
If all you’ve got is an idea, post it in the comments. If you’re feeling creative and you want to submit a design, email me. If you haven’t got my address, leave a comment.
I’ll pull everything together and set up a poll so we can choose one to develop further.
What will the winner get? Immortality, in the shape of copyright credit, as well as eternal gratitude.
Almost a dozen ideas received, including one graphical idea from @Dem_Tilly:
Name: Euro pin
Tagline: bursting the bubble
To be honest, a dozen ideas is much more than I expected, so I’ll definitely set up a poll sometime soon.
But not before at least one post setting out some wireframes I have been working on. They should help convey the idea better than any number of text posts and sketches made on my mobile phone in the Brussels Metro.
So thanks for the ideas, keep them coming and stay tuned…Mathew Lowry
