This will be a website that will detail what is happening in any particular area. It will be an event notice board that will give people a place to go to see every event happening in their area. It will be user generated content.
We want the website to have a community feel and be cool and funky... we don't want it to look too corporate... we want it to have a down to earth look. This website is by the people for the people.
The colours we prefer are earthy rustic colours like burgundy, army green, dark blue, dark brown. But if you think another colour would be better for what we need then feel free to be creative!
We would prefer a logo that incorporates the text as well as some sort of graphic that we can use as a stand alone graphic.
For best use we would prefer a rectangle/oval shape i.e we want it wider (horizontal) than it is taller (vertical). Square/round logos will not work for what we want.

Thanks for all of the "ticket" designs people have been submitting - we definitely have enough of a range to pick from those...
The last concept we would like to explore is a retro star graphic incorporated with the "every events" wording. The type of star we are looking for is a bit like this one: http://www.dragonartz.net/2010/09/13/retro-grunge-flyer-design-vector/ We like that colour combination of orange, darkgreen and lightgreen as well so it'd be good to incorporate those if possible. Thanks everyone!

If someone could try doing a logo that incorporated a ticket stub (like the old tickets you used to get to go to the cinema) that would rock!
An example would be: http://www.google.com.au/imgres?um=1&hl=en&authuser=0&biw=1280&bih=685&tbm=isch&tbnid=9mBk8c86HpJCOM:&imgrefurl=http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-royalty-free-stock-photography-ticket-stub-image559697&docid=wnOcrLjru2dcUM&imgurl=http://www.dreamstime.com/ticket-stub-thumb559697.jpg&w=400&h=300&ei=r9ykT8XAKoGtiAfAzu2xAw&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=437&sig=112344858198343172610&page=1&tbnh=155&tbnw=221&start=0&ndsp=15&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0,i:72&tx=137&ty=98
