I have a small and recently founded (as in days ago) LLC that needs a modest logo of the company name (Jenian, LLC). Artists have full range of whatever they want to do really, but the colors in the winning image I will probably utilize when I do the layout for the website. Which in turn will probably end-up on the shwag, etc.
So, you're kind of founding everything in terms of identity with this little image, I guess. I have several projects in the pipeline that will pay much better than this one; so I hope to form a possible on-going relationship with someone.
Jenian, LLC is media, entertainment, and software development company that focuses on small niche markets. So, we would never build “Facebook” but we would love to build “the facebook for lonely entomologists“ let’s say (I’m almost serious on that one). The company will not be too public facing, subsidiary companies, products, and sites will be; so flash and pop in this logo is not of high importance.
We were founded in San Francisco and everybody loves to sail, so anything that ties the company name into the urban city company members all love so much or the bay area would be cool. I really do not have anything pictured in my head which is why I’m here.
If I knew what I wanted I’d be knee-deep in PhotoShop right now. :)
Added a few hours into the contest from the discussion area: "I understand that designers are world wide here, but this company and
all people involved eat, breath, and live San Francisco. It's us. You
have an endless amount of iconographic material to work with. The
Golden Gate, the ocean, the bay, the city scape. I think a sailing
related theme would be cool, but by no means is it mandatory. Give some
different concepts a shot if you want.
I'm totally going to work with anyone who shows interest throughout this contest."
- It just has to have the company name as the logo. I would just think to myself could I see this in the header of a website or on a polo shirt?
- Oh and a .psd for the final format would be fantastic!
- I'm not into crushing artist inspiration, so do whatever you think would be cool.
