My company servicevines is creating a place for companies to get bids on local services. Service vines will START with outdoor services and let customers and small businesses post jobs they need done along with pictures and job requirements and receive bids back using reverse auction (think odesk or lending tree for outdoor services) The company will be web based only. Landscaping, lawn service, fencing, weeding & fertilization, etc.
The target will be people who need to have work done at their homes or business. So homeowners who are wealthy enough to have landscaping or outdoor work preformed. The people who will use this service will be those who have turned away from old methods (yellow pages, classifieds etc) and started by searching for local providers
For use on the web as well as on marketing materials and Keynote presentations.
Sample competitors are red beacon and thumb tack (both one word) both have a very web 2.0 feel as I would like for this site. I really like thumbtack's overall site
While I think the "vines" aspect will be good to incorporate into the logo I would not want it to just be so overpowering as to when we expand the service it couldn't be expanded to include all services.
I'm not really good with colors so whatever you feel would look good no more than a couple of colors though.
Feel free to be creative and I'll try and provide lots of feeback.
