Contest $100 Logo Contest - Payment via PayPal

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by WebDev Solutions, Jun 18, 2016.

  1. #1
    Evening all,

    We're launching a brand new project, known as InterestingAsDuck.
    The branding is a play on the phrase Interesting As Fuck, if you haven't latched onto that.
    The brand will provide interesting stories, news, videos, and images from around the world, with a particular focus on the UK audience.

    $100 is the prize to the concept if chosen, payment to be made via PayPal. Hopefully given the fact this prize is much higher than the usual found on DigitalPoint, this will reflect in the quality of entrants received.

    The project is several weeks away from launch, however we reserve the right to end this contest with 48 hours notice (to allow unfinished entrants to enter their final versions) should we find a suitable concept and wish to move forward with it.

    Here's the brief,

    Slogon: Interesting As Fuck (with the expletive crossed out and replaced with the term Duck)
    Image: An original image of a Duck, preferably green with yellow/orange beak, looking shocked and surprised.
    Sub text: Providing escape from the daily grind, one interesting story at a time.


    Colour scheme should be whites, greens...perhaps red to cross out the word Fuck, and yellow/orange (for the beak).

    Logo will be used for website logo but vector also requested for branding purposes in future.

    The text used above is subject to change as the project moves forward but the basic premise for the concept is as above. If you have any questions or require further clarification on the project before you get started, don't hesitate to ask.

    We will provide honest feedback to all entries, please do not be offended if we suggest the entry is simply not upto standard and therefore we don't require revisions from you... we must meet a certain level for this particular client.

    On-going work for this project available for the highest quality entrant(s).

    All the best,
    WebDev

    @Kripto - thanks for the entry! We like the Duck design- can we see some variations of the font/appearance of both the title an the slogon, though? It doesn't quite fit what we're after.

    @davidearner - thanks for your entries! We actually like different elements from each design. The font and appearance of the main text on the second image is far superior, but we love the font and appearance of the sub-slogan used on design number one. Can you work on this? Both Duck designs have gone down well with the team- so we're kind of torn here, can we see two variations (one for each Duck) with the encorporated font revisions as outlined above?

    @katesrobyn - thanks for your entry! Whilst there's nothing particularly wrong with it, it's just not strong enough in terms of branding for us to request revisions at this time. We have seen your previous work in other contests however, so if you feel you want to re-enter (perhaps with a few pointers from this thread to date) we would welcome you to.

    Keep them coming, folks! :)

    @sharin - Wow! Pretty much my favourite entry to date, the illustration is fantastic and I love the idea of implementing a spray can for the duck. Can we see a few different variations with different fonts?

    Many thanks,
    WebDev

    "creative" diva: Walt Disney would turn over in his grave if he would see that you stole Donald Duck. I mean really, I know that cu can't create something original, but didn't you find something else to steal? Everybody knows about Donald Duck. Looking forward to see entries with Goofy, Mickey Mouse and so on. :D I assume the CH needs an original design of a duck, because he might have copywright problems. And if you take Donald Duck and make it green and remove his hat, the result is a poor copy that traumatises others :cool:

    Initial thoughts- the green used for the font isn't stong enough for our branding, it really needs to jump off the page. We'd also like to see red used to cross out the expletive. Perhaps capitalise the slogan, too. I do feel compelled to say we don't believe this is one of our favourite entries at this time.

    Similar to our comments above, it's not striking enough and it doesn't fit the requirements stated in the OP, sorry.

    @katesrobyn - We like the edits. Overall though, we're leaning more towards just one reference to the title and slogan, as opposed to listing them twice. Anyway you can incorporate this? We like that you've used the red to cross out the expletive, perhaps we can make this stronger?
