At a high-level, the logo should be recognizable, modern and professional yet not stuffy and corporate. It should convey trust as this will be an authoritative site.
The success of our site will be based on having simple explanations to complex topics. The logo should reflect that. We believe the best logos are simple (e.g. Apple, Nike) yet have complexity and/or symbolism buried in them (e.g. Amazon, FedEx, Goodwill). We recognize this is very difficult so please feel free to submit designs that do not fit this requirement.
Furthermore, our slogan is "Discover Bitcoin Bit by Bit". Please include this underneath the logo and name.
If you are interested in more detailed requirements, please see below. Otherwise, just got for it!
1. The logo should look good as a standalone and with our name "Current With Crypto" and our tagline "Discover Bitcoin Bit by Bit".
2. It is fine, but by no means necessary, to incorporate coins into your design. But the logo should not be a coin or circle-shaped like the bitcoin logo.
3. The logo should look good both large and small. If the logo does not look good small, there should be a simplified version that we can use for smaller images (e.g. favicon)
4. The logo should not be a random shape or image. Please have a rationale for your design. For example, something with water because of the word "current" or something related to coins because of "crypto". While these examples are literal, literal interpretations are not necessary.
