Yet another Logo request.

Question

Nix    0

I know there are a ton of logo threads already but can you blame anyone? Some of logos created here are amazing. So I thought I would give it a go. The logo is for a small computer parts store. The name is flickerdown. We have a contest that started today over there but I had to post this here to see what you guys come up with. Here is the basics of the post on flickerdown.

Folks,

Vincent and I sat down on our respective sides of the continent and decided that along with the new store, we needed a little rebranding. The logo we've got in use was never intended to carry beyond the forum and smaller dealings and the time has come to strike at the professionalism aspect of things.

To that end, what we're looking for is simple (but oh so complex!):

1.) A Forum logo

2.) A two/three colour business card logo

3.) A Store logo

All images need to be in GIF, JPEG, and EPS (that's post-script) formats. Colours should be Pantone and CLEARLY (and i mean CLEARLY) denoted in an accompanying text file.

There are no restrictions on color (just not pink or black/white composite).

Basically, you will have the whole month of May to complete this project and can post as many comps as you want in a thread that I will start for this project. At the end of May, Vincent and I (and prolly Cory...gotta ask him first) will sit down and pick the top 3 finalists.

Once the Top 3 are chosen, we will ask those particular individuals to finalize their designs and submit them to us, making any last minute tweaks that we feel necessary. The top 3 will have 2 weeks to make changes and re-submit and....then we pick the finalist.

"So, Dave, what do WE get out of it?"

Since you ask...

1.) The Top 3 finalists will receive a coupon code good for 5% off 1 ITEM under $500.00 in the store.

2.) The Finalist, in addition to the coupon mentioned in point 1, will get $100.00 via Paypal (that's $100.00 SENT to you, aside from fees that you may incur) to use as they see fit.

So, let the GAMES BEGIN!!!

I'm going out of town tonight and I'm usually gone for 2-3 weeks. Usually have access to Internet but sometimes it takes a while. If you have any questions that you need answered right away you can post over at flickerdown if you don't want to wait for me to answer here.

The site url is

flickerdown.com

I had a little mistake on the previous logo. I fixed it in this one. It is hard to tell on that one, but that white glare goes off the circle and up above the image.

For some reason my font got all aliased. Weird cause I did it in Illustrator and it's not compressed at all.

The point of logo is to make your company recogonisable anywhere because they see your logo .. but you seem to be asking for 3 logos, will that not, just confuse people ?

Here are some ideas:

Question - Do we have to do all 3 logos now? Or should we wait until the top 3 are chosen before spending more time tailoring the logo to different media?
