You Can Help Couchers Choose Our Next Logo
As we continue to work on the beta version of the platform and prepare for launch, finding the right logo has been at the top of our minds.
Logo’s represent an organization. They can show what an organization is all about. It’s a key component in the Couchers mission of providing an accessible couch-surfing platform.
We need your help.
Our awesome design team has put together three different logo’s and the concepts behind them. We want you, the Couchers community, to give your input into helping decide on which direction to take the logo in. There has already been some great discussion in the community forum about the different options.
Click the button below to go to our voting page where the three logo’s are listed. Pick the one you feel that represents Couchers the best. Thank you for your input! Every vote counts!
Is Anyone Hosting at the Moment?
Travel has been on pause for most people since the early part of 2020. We’ve been social distancing and limiting travel.
As things start to change, you can’t help but wonder if anyone is actually hosting at the moment. Or even getting any requests. Over on the forum, different community users chimed on how they have seen the couch-surfing experience change since March 2020.
Head on over to the forum and let us know what your hosting and couch surfing experience has been since the pandemic first started.
