[Project Complete] - Acupuncturist Directory Logo for Website - $300

(Admin code added by Palmer - 7U823371X26851730)

Hello,

I've used this site a couple times before for logos - so thanks in advance for all of the good work.

Recently I did a logo for a site exploring wholeness - the post is here:
http://www.designoutpost.com/forums/...ad.php?t=23136

Essentially everything I said in that post will be applicable here.

This site will be an acupuncturist directory listing service with some stronger community networking functions - it's called myacu.me ---- basically -
Patients Finding Acupuncturists - Acupuncturists Finding Community

The site is still heavily in development, but we would love a good logo set for the website and other correspondence.

This could possibly be more acupuncture/Chinese Medicine oriented than the more universal view of the exploring wholeness logo created in the link above.

The color set for the logo and text aspect should be viable web colors we'd like a logo version that stands alone on it's own - without text - and then a more horizontal logo with text "My Acu" - possibly with the tagline above.

If you have any questions, please ask. And thank you!
-Chad.

Chad, do you think you need to fill out the questionnaire or do you think they will have enough information from your previous project?

Thank you

I've answered the questions that may be a bit different from the other project. I'd also add that perhaps some type of five element graphics like those https://www.google.com/search?q=five...6ZA10Q_AUIBigB might be a a decent starting point for the logo part - but I'm not sure how much that would mean to the average person. It is important to note that while practitioners are generally called "acupuncturists" - in reality they practice Chinese Medicine which is acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tuina (chinese medical massage) and other aspects.

When is the deadline for final entries before choosing a designer? - ideally within 2-3 weeks.

Competitive Positioning:
Who are your competitors and what do you think about their logos?

There are no sites quite like the one we are building - but acufinder.com and nccaom.org both offer some aspect of practitioner listing services - without any of the other networking opportunities our site will afford. Healthprofs.com is another one that, again, is just a directory.


What sets you apart from your competitors?

It will be the community networking aspect between the practitioners, schools and acupuncture lobbying organizations. Additionally the educational aspect for the public and the practitioners within blog posts and forum activity.

Thank you im3d

That's a very interesting take. I like the 2nd version more than the 1st. For me, however, they are maybe a bit too sterile - or not really wellness/healing oriented.

I wonder if you removed the magnifying glass and made that a circle of the five elements that sort of appeared like a magnifying glass (in whatever way that is possible :-) ... or something along those lines? Probably not easy to not end up being too busy looking though.

-Chad.

Sorry for the lack of communication - I've had a lot of trouble with the site appearing down (resolving dns, etc.) lately and I haven't been getting notifications.

Either way, I will respond to all of the designs this evening when I'm done with work today.

My initial look at some of them is I feel like the designs where all the needles are facing the "person" is a disagreeable approach for many people. While a needle helps to illustrate acupuncture, making them look like a voodoo doll is probably not the approach we are going for.

Also, generally speaking, I'm not a fan of "asian" type lettering - so interesting meaningful graphic/logo - but clear text would be where I would likely head.

Thank you for all the work thus far, and sorry again for the lack of feedback.

-Chad.

thank you skyvee, I like the simplicity of this. Could you work in another color or two?
