Creative Brief

Contest title: Link widget website logo
Sub title: Linkalize
Category: Logo Design
Brand Name: Linkalize
Summary:

We need a logo for a website we are building. The site will offer a simple tool to display data in a tooltip over links on customer's websites. See attached tooltip image. 

The name of the service is Linkalize (linkalize.com). It will offer an API too, but the main function will be a widget (similar to addthis.com and sharethis.com). It will provide data about links to visitors. I can't provide more details at this time. 

Description:

I need a logo that will look good in small size (as small as 16x16/favicon), so it should fit in a small square and not have too many small details. Like the addthis, facebook, twitter, and other social media site icons.

The site will probably use a blue color (#0d90bf) with white, black and light gray backgrounds/text. But that's not confirmed yet. I might need you to adjust the color later. 

You can try some of these colors suggested for my blue:

It could be a simple "L" or other letters. Feel free to try different fonts. Or it could be an image (like addthis/twitter) that represents what Linkalize offers (information about links via widgets, tooltips and api). 

Some ideas: 

 -an "L" in a unique font. 

-an "L" with a tooltip on it. 

-tooltip with "L" inside it. 

-just a tooltip

-link/chain (maybe forming "L") 

-mouse cursor/hand/arrow -an "i" for info. 

-a gear 

-the internet (earth or web) 

-or some combination of the above ideas. (but I'm open to better ideas you may have)

Please show me your logo ideas and/or the logo inside a square icon. Don't waste my time by copying and pasting graphics you find online. Unique creations only. 

What I want:

Unique and simple yet elegant logo that looks good in small size as well.

What I don't Want:

No copy and paste of web graphics.
