$120 Logo & Header Contest for Oil Website

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by staffjam, Mar 7, 2009.

  1. #1
    Hi, I’m Looking for a theme for an oil site which will include a Logo & Header.

    The website will be: OilPrice.Com
    The slogan is: The No1 Source for Oil Price Information
    Header size: 770 wide
    Prize: $120 paid to the winner via Paypal
    Contest End Date: Thursday 12th March 8:00 PM GMT
    I have run 8 other contests here in the past so there should hopefully be no doubts about payment. Previous threads can be posted if requested. I’d just like to state that there will be a winner of this competition on DP – the competition will not be cancelled for ANY reason and a winner will be announced and PAID - even if I don’t get what I’m after.
    SEMrush
    The logo & Header must look very professional as the site will be visited by Corporates & individuals alike.
    It will provide real time price charts, stock prices, investment advice and detailed information on commodity trading and the markets.
    I'd like the design to look classy and professional but modern, fashionable, trendy and cutting edge - it must also be fresh.
    I do want to be able to read the name very easily (letters must be clear.)
    I’m not sure about emblems but it would be nice to see some logos with these built in as well.

    At this stage I’m open to all ideas.
    I have seen a few sites with colours I think are very sharp and professional: The colours of the circles in: madproductions.co.uk and the colour of the red in 9i.com Logo – look very nice and I’d certainly like to see a few designs with this type of shiny colouring applied.
    That’s not to say that’s all I want to see – as I said above I’m open to almost anything.
    Detailed feedback will be given for all entries and the thread will be updated with tips and ideas on a regular basis.
    Please post entries on this thread and not via PM!

    A good thread for inspiration is another contest I ran, which has some great designs http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1029452 (I’m not saying I want them all to be like this, but there were certainly a lot of nice designs.)

    Thankyou, I look forward to seeing your designs.

    Thanks for the entries so far guys.
    I’d just like to repeat I’m looking for a Logo + Header, with a theme for the site. I would like it to have an Oil/Finance feel.
    Also the logo must have the full name so: OilPrice.Com (not just oil price)

    Okay feedback:

    RaPeRbOy – sorry not what I’m looking for – I just can’t see it appealing to a sophisticated audience.
    Anjum sheikh – Again, not the sort of thing I’m after – it’s creative, but just unappealing.
    J634 – thanks for the entry, just not what I’m after.
    Graphicband – it’s quite clean, but again not what I’m looking for.
    Webmarketjournal – I’m afraid it’s far too simple – but it’s on the right track.
    BRAIN PAIN – It’s creative, but sadly not right for the audience I will be catering to.
    Jurd6 – I quite like it - it’s neat and crisp – now if you could just add the .com and create a theme of some sort it could be very interesting.

    Thanks all so far – but please I am looking for a Header and a theme.

    Let me know if I'm headed in the right direction, as I'll be expanding the design to fit a header size. Thanks. :D
