Update on Feb 28. Please read the job offer carefully. You must submit a proposed logo with your application, or you will not be considered.
We will soon release a set of building automation products. These will be tiny battery powered sensors for things like temperatures, motion, pressure, position sensing, humidity, etc etc and pairing with these will be tiny actuators for taking actions like turning things on or off, making blinds open and shut, etc.etc
These tiny little things we are calling biots with the I capitalized as in b I o T.
This is a play off of the new acronym IoT for "Internet of Things".
Our company name is symbiot.
We have reserved www.sym-bIoT.com for our website.
So the idea here is a play on symbiotic and IoT - as in a symbiotic relationship amongst the sensors and actuators which are all participants in the Internet of Things.
We need a logo for our little sensors & actuators, kinda like what the little green Android character is for Google.
The difficult thing about this job posting is we really can't know who to pick without first seeing the logo you dream up. So there really is no way to look at your prior work and pick one person to do the logo - the chances of missing out on a great logo are too great.
On the other hand, we don't believe in getting free work and we have a long history on Odesk of hiring ethically.
In the past on other projects we have paid about $10 for logo design.
So here is our offer. Make us a logo and submit it with your application for the job. The winner will be paid $100. I know that you will invest time to even apply for this job, seems fair to make the potential reward match the risk.
We will post the winner so everyone will know that we did not steal free work.
That seems the most fair to all sides. If that seems unfair to you, then you should not apply for this job.
We will leave this job open until March 5, so get those logos in soon. Feel free to submit multiple designs.
