Burke Hedges Seminars -- $200.00

(Admin code added by Palmer - E7501252)

Lori at Zenful Creations said that the greatest designers in the world are on Design Outpost. Pretty bold I thought from such a talented person who is in the process of designing my new website. So, Iím left with no alternative than to submit my project for bid to the ďmost talentedĒ of designers to design my logo. I understand you appreciate quick feedback and as much information as possible to help you capture the spirit of my design. Therefore, I will share what I had in mind (as if I really have a clue) for a logo. Iíll do my best.

PRIZE: $200.00
DEADLINE: ASAP and hopefully by September 25th

Background:

Iím a seminar speaker and peak performance trainer for the direct sales industry and corporate clients. My direct sales (MLM) clients hire me to talk about the books Iíve written to validate, educate and motivate their distributor sales force. Thereís nothing like third party documentation to validate the industry and their specific opportunity. My corporate clients hire me to motivate, inspire and to teach about discovering the leader with so they can be more productive and happier in their work and life. My books have sold more than 3 million in 20 languages. I believe people fear what they donít understand. My books and seminars are critical to understanding the power within to achieve their DREAMS in their own business or career. Limiting beliefs are the seeds to self-sabotage. Education is the first step to transformation. My seminars mobilize and empower people, to do more, have more and be more than they have become. My talks ignite the fire that lies dormant within. To learn more about my products go to www.burkehedges.com.

Descriptive words, phrases, animals and images I like (not married to):

The following (not in any order) might help in developing an image for a logo:

Words: momentum, priceless, possible/possibilities, determination, mobilize, belief, attitude, focus, courage, guru, leader/leadership, teacher, ignite, courage, relentless, pursuit, empowerment, limitless, success, conviction, wisdom, energy, education, leadership, advantage, edge, impact, confidence, accountability, reinvent, dream.

Sayings: never give up, no regrets, swing for the fences, be your best, dream big, no whining, itís not what happens to you, itís how you react to it. Itís not the size of the man in the fight, but the size of the fight in the man. All the negativity in the world canít sink your boat as long as you keep it on the outside.

Animals: the rhino, bull, eagle and the lion.

Images: bridges, world, smile, light bulb, mountains

Slogan: if you can think of a slogan I use I will send you an autograph copy of any one of my books and a couple of additional surprise gifts. I have posted a slogan contest in ďmiscellaneousĒ for $25.

As you can surmise Iím desperately need the right image and posturing to wow my clients to help me help them. I have to get back to work. Lori, asked that you feel free to contact her with any questions since she is designing my website.

Thank you in advance for your contribution. I really appreciate your help and your talents.

Hi all,

Burke will be here on and off to give fast feedback but if you have any questions on direction please ask. I need to get the logo so that I can go on with the site design, and I know you all can do something super duper.

Thanks team!

Hi Burke. We are not allowed to communicate privately during the contest. Your comments are meant to benefit all designers in the pursuit to give you the perfect logo.
To be fair, I will post your comments here.

Hi Jason, thanks for being the first to tackle this project. I was watching Oprah a couple of days ago and i like her logo with the O. Maybe we can do something with the B. Just some thoughts. Burke
Funny you mentioned that. I was playing around with the "B" and "H", but I will try just the "B". I will be back with something for you.

We are not there yet

Looking for something that has a lot of credibility and originality, maybe with some movement.

Burke,

Can you let the designers who have submitted know in a little more detail what it is that you do and do not see that works for you in the designs they have given you...

That helps them and future entrants with the direction to move in...

Thanks Burke!

Hi all,

Burke is a new at the forum thing so I am going to help him out a little bit here

He is working on some more detailed feedback to help you all with the direction now... look for that later today.

Until then, I asked him to go through some sites that I gave him to help pinpoint styles he likes for logos. He sent them to me, we discussed, and I have compiled his favorites here for you.

I hope this helps you all some

More Feedback

Thank you for your entries. I like the designs of the logos Lori was so gracious to post for me. Iím new (and obviously pretty incompetent) when it comes to DO. Sorry. Perhaps these logo sample will provide you with more direction than Iíve provided in the past.

As for my feedback on the logos design youíve submitted:

Bill: I like the thought of a picture, but I didnít care for the one you used. It looked to comic bookish for me. Maybe if it were a little softer (maybe in an outline type way) to leave more to the imagination might work!

Ruairi: I love the colors, but the image you used of the light bulb did not work for me because it reminded me too much of a power company. For me the light bulb communicates awareness, energy, and intelligence. Perhaps if you used a different type of light bulb design in a different way it might work.

Jason: Sometimes simple is better. I like your first B. I would like to see what it looks like in a box or with boundaries of some sort. The circle is intriguing but it doesnít communicate enough to me.

I definitely agree with that!!

Jason, can you try a different box design in the same hand written design you drew the "B". Or may be you could incorporate the "B" in a design in as in the Rooster in the Farmhouse Logo I provided. I appreciate your efforts Jason.

Paula, I like your first one better than the second. Could you try using a few different colors? I was thinking Ė Blue, white, Gray, Orange Red, Black. Not all at once, just the colors i would like to see in the background. Also, I wonder what the BH might look like just a tad bit thinner. Just a bit! Thanks for your entry.

It would be great if someone would take a crack at a logo that incorprates a combination of DreamWorks and Jerry Bruckheimer above. Thanks.

Paula23: Thank you for the additional designs. I thought I would like the thinner BH in the box, but I donít like it as much as the thicker B in the circle. After getting a few opinions at the office (everybodyís got one) the general consensus is we like the thicker ďBĒ in the circle. We would like for you to work with the circle design, but could you show us a BH and use more color options. I like the ďBĒ but, I just would like to see what the BH looks like. Thanks

Design General: Thanks for your entry. Can you try to use a different design for the H in the BH so it could be a little clearer. Thanks.

Taldo: Thanks for your design. I like your approach but I thought it was a little too festive. Perhaps you can tone it down a bit and make it a little more elegant. Thanks.

Eagle: ďIím sorry" "that does not appeal, can you try again?"

Paula23, I like the color combination of the bottom right and the purple/yellow. I like the design of the top left. Can you redo the logo in the B and the BH (like two previous top left). I like the idea of a moon, (maybe a star shining, clouds, depth like the DO web logo) because it makes you think of dreams. By the way does the H in the top right need to have some curves like the B or would it take away from the design?

Fabian: I like your logo, perhaps a variation with a B. What are your thoughts?

Design General: Iím sorry, but the designs are not working for me. Please feel free to try again. Thanks.
