Bestville's mission is to be a ratings and review system that is trusted by users and valued by the companies that covet our highest rating for their products or services.
Bestville.com helps users find the best products and services to buy in a Q&A format. Users pose questions to the community like “What’s the best inexpensive digital camera for my 8 year old child?,” and members of the community selected for their discernment respond with their views on what are the best-in-class or highest value products given the questioner's needs.
The reasons we focus only on the best products are because this helps users:
- Make purchase decision easier by focusing on only the best few to consider
- Get the most for their money
- Reward the companies and products that deserve their money
Online shoppers looking for reviews and ratings so they can make purchase decisions.
Style & Tone:
Logo design should be simple yet unique and memorable. It should not conjure up associations with other company logos.
Logo should be clearly legible. Though a sans serif font isn't a requirement, avoid crazy fonts. Make sure the "i-l-l" sequence of letters in "Bestville" reads clearly -- avoid designs that don't disambiguate the "i" from the "l".
We plan to eventually incorporate the logo into a “Bestville Certified” or “Bestville #1” type of badge that we award to products we deem best-in-class. We would like this logo-incorporating badge to give off an air of prestige or authority so that manufacturers or vendors will be proud to display it -- keep this use in mind.
Recommended Color Palette:
The logo should go well with a colored background.
A nice-to-have would be a logo with a primary and secondary color that can dictate the website design. Do not use too many colors. Gradations of a given color are fine. We're open to the use of natural photorealistic textures, such as used here-- simpleshoes.com
Aspect ratio should have width longer than height to so the site header can be as short as possible.
Logos We Like:
*Note*: Don't use the current Bestville.com site as a reference. We will completely redesign the website to add new Q&A features and match the logo.
NEW: A possible tagline to add to the logo: "What is best?"
