Common Sense Design partners with Meeting Place to launch logo and web site
Brighton, England, Monday 7 February 2005
A new online dating service - Meeting Place - launches today with a logo and Web site designed by Nigel Gordijk of Brighton's Common Sense Design. What makes the site unique is its emphasis on matching people within a specific region, rather than the whole country. With this in mind, Nigel Gordijk devised the tagline "People like you, near you". Initially, the service will concentrate on the South Coast of England, rolling out across the country later.
Common Sense Design created a logo that highlights a couple who have found each other in a crowd of people. The bright, distinctive colour scheme is carried throughout the Web site's design. The site (www.meeting-place.co.uk) has been designed to be simple to use, with an engaging, friendly tone.
"Working closely with Meeting Place enabled me to create a brand that immediately conveys the key message, that people will be able to find friends and partners online," said Nigel Gordijk, Common Sense Design's Creative Director. "It was also important for me to make it clear to potential members how easy it is to use the site".
Meeting Place, based in Eastbourne, is owned and run by directors Tracy Nuttall and Ian Goodyer, who said: "Nigel has helped us develop a flexible online environment where we can help people find matches near them, quickly and easily. He has given Meeting Place a unique, distinctive personality that is in keeping with what we were trying to achieve."
Meeting Place and Common Sense Design are currently working on an online advertising campaign to promote the dating service.
