Hello Super Star Designers,
The star in the logo will also be used as the button to "star" the content. So, it is very important that the logo will look good as a button/icon also.
With that in mind, the design of the star is the most important. The typography will not be near as important when choosing a winner as the design of the star symbol.
The artists of the site are the stars. So, the star symbol must either have the human figure inside of it or represent both a human and a star in another way. Your creativity is key here. The star symbol attached is very good too. You are welcome to clean it up, tweak it, and make it really shine.
It is very important to show how the star button will look when hovering over it with the pointer because it is also a button to vote and favorite content. When hovering, it would look great if sunbeams came out of it or it glowed from behind. Also, please show how it will look when it has been clicked. Please show me the normal, hover, and clicked buttons because their designs all have to match the logo.
In the star symbol attached it looks like the person is reaching for something greater than themselves. I think that is a very powerful image. Can you create a star person that looks inspiring? When a person hovers over the button it should look even more inspiring. Finally, when clicked it should look different to let them know it has already been clicked. The logo can be anyone of these three variations.
The background can be black(space), bright blue(sky), or plain white. The typography can be any color that you see fit.
This logo is extremely important to the success of the community because it will be used over and over as the button to vote for the stars of the website and will hopefully inspire people to become Self Made Stars.
