Float? (Floaters: 24 )

Description: A social networking website for English speakers living in Tokyo. This one is based on the Tokyo Flag symbol... but I've adjusted it slightly so that the stems represent people.

Conceptually quite nice. I find there are issues with the strokes:*- the connection between lower half and upper half of the people is pixelised, I dont think you need to go into such detail there. The arms could also be thicker, maybe.*-the space between body and head would be more homogeneous if it was the same as the stroke surrounding the inner circle.**I think this would benefit from a generally thicker typeface as well.

First thought on this, is that it's Target even though there's thinness of space around the two circles. Target has well branded and marketed the whole bulls eye design, so that if someone sees it, they think Target. It's stronger than the origami ball concept that you have, perhaps you need to do something different.

one more thing I forgot to add. There's also a garbage truck company in either China or Japan that uses the bulls eye design.

Target comes to mind right away, I thought it had something to do with something in Target in china or japan. But concept works. Maybe try some other ideas, I see the people have circle heads? Might be something there

Thank you everyone. This is the Tokyo flag:**http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/j/jp-13.gif**at the risk of sounding defensive (which i assure you im not) but in regards to the similarities to 'Target' I get the feeling people in Tokyo wont think the same.
