[login to view URL] is an upcoming humor and satire site targeted towards a slightly more mature demographic (age 25+). It will feature funny and satirical short articles (500 – 1000 words), listicles (Top 10 lists …..), original and dubbed spoof videos, funny quizzes (like the ones on Buzzfeed), tongue in cheek memes and infographics and funny calculators, surveys and games. Each piece of content will go through a strict editorial process and the focus will be quality of content, as measured in terms of engagement and virality, rather than quantity. Topics to be covered will include careers, relationships, travel, current affairs and slice of life subjects. Inspirations for the site are global sites such as [login to view URL] and buzzfeed.com. Platforms used to share the content will include the [login to view URL] website, YouTube channel, Instagram channel and Whatsapp.
The name [login to view URL] connotes an overall irreverent look at issues that most of the world usually takes very seriously. It prods the world to be a bit more light-hearted, mischievous and impish/devilish. With its focus on satire, the lighter-note assumption is that the writers as well as readers are going to be “damned” by the conventional world.
We are seeking a corporate identity for [login to view URL] that includes
1. A logo for [login to view URL] that captures its spirit as described above. The logo needs to include the words “[login to view URL]” preferably or at least “Damned” as this logo will be used on all platforms and marketing material.
2. A mascot for [login to view URL] that symbolizes its spirit. This caricature mascot could be a human (male, female, child), creature (animal, bird, insect) or any other being (devil, ghost, angel etc) and would be an integral part of the platform and a lot of the content that appears in it.
3. A symbol/emblem for [login to view URL] that does not include the text but just captures the spirit of the site and the logo – for e.g. a “D”. It is essentially a condensed logo that could possibly be used on the dress of the mascot and other collateral such as business cards etc.
Thanks in advance for participating and all the best.
