MemberSpring or memberspring - NOT Member Spring, NOT member spring
This logo is for a simple membership scripting system, with an emphasis on ease of use.
We value simple, clean, modern design, and know it when we see it. The odds are that if you haven't already won a contest here, you probably won't win this one unless you're a logo design master.
A note to the true professionals: You know who you are, and I'm sure you're tired of losing to amateur logos that are churned out by "logo creator" software - that won't happen here.
Also, please submit your designs early, and often. I know that many of the better designers here tend to submit their designs late for fear of being ripped off... I always value, and honor the original creator. Do not wait to submit until the last minute. Submitting early gives me a chance to give you direct feedback on your design - and that feedback is often what separates a winning design from a losing one.
I've run three contests, and have chosen three winners - all of them have been paid. A winner will be selected, and a winner will be paid. I will also very likely pick a second "alternate" and be in contact with that designer after the contest has ended.
You will get feedback through the entire design process, and I will also rate and eliminate logo designs at least once per day. You will not be working in the dark on this logo design.
I'm your target audience, right? I mean, I'm the one picking the winner after all ...
As previously stated, I'm looking for simple, clean, and modern.
Please do not put the logo on business cards, or stationary, or coffee mugs or anything else. Let's focus on the logo, and the logo alone.
The logo should include the name of the brand, and some type of service mark that relates directly to the name. The service mark should also stand alone.
Feel free to be creative in your design of the service mark, and use multiple colors if needed. All colors should be bold, no pastels. You are free to use gradients and/or multiple colors in both the service mark, and in the text.
My first thought on the design would be something that looks like the letter "M" with a circle above it so that the "M" and the circle appear to be the head, and upper half of a person's body. There could be multiple icons like this in a shape, or circle, or loosely connected.
That is ONLY an idea, it's not a requirement, and I could just as easily choose a logo of a different design.
This is a membership site solution, so something referencing community, multiple people, or just people in general would work. Do not include any thought or text bubbles.
Note: Do not include a spring, or about the spring season.
Note: Do not include any clip art, or stock photography of any kind. All work must be 100% original.
The logo must be delivered in both a vector format (ai), and a Photoshop (psd) file. Logo should be no less than 300 dpi, and should be large.
The name of the font used must be disclosed after the winner is chosen.
