After getting great results on a couple of EXCELLENT logos for some nonprofits I work with, I've decided to remake my own logo for my business. Currently, I am only using the business name with a little treatment on the type. You can see the current logo at http://www.brilliantly.net
. Please note that I am NOT married to any part of the current logotype at all. Use any part of it or none of it.
You can also read all about what I do on my website... but here's an executive summary. I am a web and graphic designer. Probably 80% of the work I do is web-related with 20% print. As I've explained in other contests, I can hold my own with print and web design pretty well... but I absolutely STINK at logo design. When I do it, it takes me forever and it's not nearly as good as the work I've seen some of you do.
So on to the logo itself. Here are the parameters...
1. Should be vectored art
2. Should work well with the Pantone 185 red and black designs I use in my current media - but it does not have to BE these colors.
3. Should work on business cards, letterhead, invoices, and websites
4. Should work in your original design colors as well as 1 color. You can even design for a 4 color process if you want... but in the end it has to work in 1 color too.
5. Should have either a whimsical feel or a techie feel... I haven't decided which way to go yet.
As far as a jumping off place... I started piddling around with a propeller-head cap (Like This
). Also, I've been using the tagline "communicate.smart" for a while now. If you can work that in, that would be great. If not, no biggie. Past that, I'm not sure what else to give you to get started.
Prize is 75 smackeroos... Deadline needs to be fairly soon (this Wednesday, July 16). I'm developing a new promo brochure for the business that needs to be finished in the very near future... and the new logo will hold center stage.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the creative geniuses here at work. If I've left anything out, just post. I'll be watching this thread closely.
