If you are starting a new job board (or any website) you absolutely NEED a professional logo.
There’s just no excuse for NOT having one. Services like 99designs.com are an awesome way to get one for around $500 bucks.
Last week I posted a project to get a new logo for what will hopefully be my next startup, CareerCloud.
Within 24 hours of submitting my specs I had dozens of top quality logos to choose from by designers all over the world. And I was able to make my decision quickly. I chose the design below. It met all my aesthetic requirements. Clean, simple modern looking with a great color scheme.
Your logo sets the tone for how visitors to your web site will view you. A great logo like the one above goes a long way in determining the trust a website earns. It says to visitors that hey, this is a professional website that is worth MY TIME in checking out.
Those of you that fail to invest in a logo and good web design will regret it in the longrun.
