Not bad, nicely done.  If we want the circle to stand alone on its own with some meaning or identity, than it would not work.  Otherwise, as a website logo, it is good.

My friend is a designer, so minor changes can be done easily. Thinking of the website logo version (long-ish) and a shorter version (squarish version for say twitter, flickr). Will put up samples

I like the logo designed by travelbug's friend.  It would be great if he can come out with a few versions of it.

With reference to travelbug's friend's logo,
I didn't like the 'TravelCafe' sticking out... but the font is nice, and the overall colour is nice.
How abt making the 'SGTravelCafe' word curve round the circle, say on the right or some angle?
Feels like the word is resting on a globe or something...

Sure. Daniel's (he designed the logo) working on a few versions, n taking into accounts comments here. He came up with the word "SG in, and travelcafe out", within 1st 5mins of seeing the site, since like most people, the name was not the most obvious. Be patient, versions will come over next day or 2.

No, we feel that there should be more design options.  There were suggestions to combine elements of this and that logo.  We did a vote to get a feel of the style that is preferred, but nothing conclusive.  Too many opinions...   ::)

I have a very poor sense of art appreciation, so I shall not say too much here.
But if the eventual logo can also be converted into a favicon, then that would be a bonus. The default "page with folded corner" is a little too mundane for my liking :)

The logo is up on all sites; and yes, the favicon too  :)
