Contest $20 Logo contest for "The Best Forum Ever" - rebranding

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Brandon Sheley, May 7, 2017.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm in the market for another logo and you guys have always been an amazing resource coming up with ideas I had never thought of. :)

    This is the site, it's a forum, it's "The Best Forum Ever", or at least that is the URL and name, hopefully it'll be true one day but if not it's going to be the best forum for the friends on it now..lol


    URL: http://thebestforumever.com/
    Theme behind the site: fun and friendly place to talk about anything you like (a typical general forum)
    Colors: I'll match the style to the logo, my only request would be a transparent background.
    Info on readers: 18+, English speaking


    Needs placement for a tagline that would could show or hide depending on the time of year.
    SEMrush
    Post your examples or ask questions. I'll give feedback to every post presented (check my other logo contest)

    I have ideas and additions that I like to create with the winners logo, they are below and I usually work one on one with the designer afterwards but you're welcome to add these to your submissions and I'll critique. This can be beneficial to everyone because as the pages go on my idea starts to really take shape with what you guys present. I know the very basics of what I want, you guys the designers really unlock the potential. :)

    IDEA: The forum has used the call letters "TBFE" in the past. I think I'd rather have everything spelled out for the logo but I would like be have a smaller matching icon that would match up with the logo. Maybe same color and font but it just be the 4 letters. These would be used as default avatars or maybe other icons of the site to match the overall brand.

    IDEA 2: The forum has has a mascot of sorts in the past, I don't remember what it was but I think they pulled it from a meme. I didn't exactly care the subject they used in the past but I would be open to the idea of a matching mascot. An example would be on this forum https://wtf.com I remember talking to the owners years ago, maybe decades, but even back then he had the same brilliant idea of tieing everything together. You'll see a dude up top, brains out, zombie looking. Then you'll see other aspects through out the site that tie back to it. Something fun like that is what I'd eventually want.


    These usually only take a few days and get to page 3 or 4 before I find what I'm looking for.
    As I said, I'll review each submissions in this thread, please be creative and don't be afraid to try something new for this awesome amazing forum that I'm working on :)

    make me proud! :cool:

    Hello! Here is my entry.
    I tried to make the logo clean to pop out on the header of your forum.
    It can be also used as default profile pic and favicon easily.

    Feedback appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I don't have time to review each image but I will when I get back.
    So far I like the stash in the 2nd version in post 3
    the 2nd set in post 7
    and then the owl in post 11 here

    I just got in from a long day and will have one tomorrow. Not sure if I'll get a reply but I'm sure I'll have time by Wednesday to review everything.

    Keep your submissions coming, you guys are amazing :)

    alright, but quick reviews

    post 2
    I like the bottom right the best of your 4. Maybe add some depth to the logo

    post 3
    1.I think I'd rather have the letters as caps
    2. I do like the stash

    post 4
    I don't mind the font but the text needs bigger. I know it's a lot of words but I guess put emphasis on "best forum" maybe that'll help
    Maybe just have "BF" in the icon

    post 5
    honestly not a fan of either but if I had to choose one I'd go with the first option

    post 6
    font feels to girly

    post 7
    1. still bottom right but to flat
    2. I like the icons and letters, try caps for icon and more contrast on the "best forum" and "the ever"

    post 8
    very interesting idea on the icon, needs more work to see the t.. i like that a lot of the 2 options i like the first set. maybe try with just "BF" as in best forum

    post 9. I like the creativity but feels like the army. I like the actual logo part but the star doesn't match up or I just don't get it. I like the way you split of the 4 words though, very nice.

    post 10. I like the paint can but i don't see how it matches a gen forum. also can we try with a white background

    post 11
    I like the 2nd version over the first just because it isn't as flat. Seems like toe face is missing a mouth though. needs more

    post 13
    I like the idea but feels half done

    post 14
    again I like both but feel half done, the words need contrast and the icon maybe squeezed over more to save space

    post 15
    Of the 3 I like the 2nd one

    post 16
    I like the "the best forum" part, the other elements seem out of place

    post 17
    I like the 4 letters maybe try this. white or transparent background. where you have the 4 words make "best" and "forum" stand out more, maybe try primary colors and have "the" and "ever" as another color, then match those colors to the 4 letter icon.. like if forum is red then the f circle would be red.. try that please :)
