One Green Butterfly

Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking up ideas for non-existent companies. It's a strange thing, I know... Inspired by the Toymaker in my previous post I have decided to start trying to find these ideas a home.

One Green Butterfly is an idea I have for an eco company. The background behind the name & logo goes to the Butterfly Theory that suggests movements as small as the flapping of a butterfly's wings can create momentum that eventually builds up enough force to change the weather patterns around the world.

One Green Butterfly is the idea that small changes we make ecologically can make a big impact over time. I created this logo and have the URL to go with it. It'd be a great logo & url combo for an eco or green blog, market, magazine, gift shop, etc...

The butterfly icon is made from a 1, g, & b... can you see it? The icon and the typography is clean, simple, and fresh... just the way an eco company should be, right?

I am GIVING away this logo and URL to someone who would like to use it. If you know anyone who has wanted to start a business such as suggested, pass this info on. If you are interested in obtaining this logo and url combo, please leave a comment below. If there ends up being more than one interested party, I'll use to pick a winner. If no one is interested, c'est la vie... moving on to the next idea.

I've decided to do this on a regular basis. I have LOTS of unused ideas... So, if you want to be informed of these giveaways and other freebies, sign up for my RSS feed. Please sign up for my mailing list in the sidebar below, too. I'll be sending out advance notice to the mailing list before I put them on the blog as well as giving extra freebies to the list from time to time.

UPDATE: I'll pick a winner on Friday, Feb. 6, 2009. If no one has entered by then, it'll be the next Friday and so on after that- doing the giveaways in weekly intervals. Thanks!
