logo for an entertainment smartphone app

BisManNow (or BisMan Now)

What to do. Where to Eat.


This logo is for a website and a smartphone app (a franchisee of TownWizard.com) to let people know all the restaurant/bar choices and all the current activities/events (plays, bands, movies, festivals, art shows, skiing, skating, zoos, fishing, etc.) going on in Bismarck-Mandan—sister cities located in central North Dakota.

The website and app target market is 18-34 year old males and females.

I want the logo to be very simple and clean and to convey a modern “fun” feel, but not in a "party-like" or busy way. It needs to look cool—so that an 18-34 year old would to have a t-shirt with the logo on it.

Some other franchisee website logos (and smartphone app icons) to check out are:

The logo needs to be designed so it will work in the following formats:
1. Website logo 245 pixels wide x 150 pixels high
2. Smartphone page header: 560 pixels wide x 168 pixels high
3. Phone app icon: 1024x1024 (and must also “look good” at 40x40)
4. Smartphone full screen image: 640 wide x 960 high
5. Facebook image: 200 pixels wide

I am leaning toward these two colors:
Pantone 17-4027 (riviera)
Pantone 14-0754 (super lemon)

But I am open to other two-color combinations or even going 1-color


The most prominent physical feature of the two communities is the Missouri River; you may want to consider somehow making a river rendering a part of the logo (maybe abstractly--not a direct likeness of the actual river). Other prominent physical attributes of the communities to consider using--if it is decided to include them in your proposed logo--are the cavalry fort in Mandan and the Bismarck's state capitol building (these would need to be subtley in use as well, if used at all). Links to the images are here:

    I like the clean, simple looks of No. 10 and No. 11 the best so far. But:
    - The text should be BisMan (capital B capital M)
    - BisMan should be in one color--as it is, but then "Now" should be in another color.
    - Maybe even make "Now" in another font, placed differently or separate from BisMan

    Thanks for proofs everyone--keep them coming!

    Attention Designers!!

    MycroBurst permits you to submit unlimited designs with unlimited variations. However, if you are providing 2 or 3 different color versions of the same logo in one draft, please make sure that if the particular draft gets finalized, each color version should be separated before you will send the final files.
