    Hello again talented people,

    So I need a new logo for a 100 year anniversary event

    Requirements:

    This is for a Romanian based event so it MUST have the Romanian flag colors (blue, yellow and red).

    Text: 100 DE ANI MAREA UNIRE (This means 100 years of great unity) 1918-2018 The words MAREA UNIRE need to appear very large as they are the main words in the logo together with 100

    The logo MUST contain or must incorporate the image of the three soldiers which can be downloaded from here: https://we.tl/yKxMDO0Xm8

    I would like the picture of soldiers to be included in one of the 0 from the number 100. You can do something similar to this example below

    [​IMG]

    Colors: Like I said because it is a Romanian theme must be as the Romanian flag colors Red, Yellow and Blue

    Any questions please ask. Also, please NO PM entries. Please post all entries on the thread.

    Winner gets $25 via paypal. I am hoping to end this in about 48 hours.

    technoguy: thank you for getting this started. It looks good. I like the concept but it's not there. First issue is the colors are in the wrong order. The correct order is very important from a Romanian point of view. Should be red, yellow (in the middle) and then blue. But I am sure this can be easily fixed. The main issue is the Romanian theme is not fully coming through. I want someone to see the logo and straight away think of Romania.
    For example when you see stars and stripes on something you right away think of the American flag. And that is what I want with this logo. So....if you are willing to give it another try this is what I suggest:
    use the Romanian flag or some red, yellow and blue stripes or shapes as a background. Then for the text use perhaps white. place "DE ANI" just above "MAREA UNIRE" and I think that would be it. And perhaps make bigger the photo with the soldiers inside the 0. I do like the concept and while there is no guarantee you will win once you do the changes (if you do them), I do think the concept you started is great.

    Redders: thanks for the entry. It is a nice one but not "Romanian" enough. Having the Romanian flag (which ideally the stripes should be vertical) in there is not enough. I need more of a Romanian theme than it is right now. There is too much black right now which overpowers the Romanian flag. Perhaps use some shape of red, yellow and blue as a background and then place your current logo on that background. I just simply need more of a stronger Romanian theme.

    technoguy: WOW. This looks really, really good. The only changes I would consider is perhaps using a bolder font for the numbers, making the soldiers slightly bigger and perhaps changing the background stripes into a vertical position. In the Romanian flag the stripes are vertical. Even without the changes I suggested, right now it looks very, very good. Great job. I will be waiting until tomorrow to choose a winner but yours looks very good.

    WOW, some really great entries. So here comes the feedback:

    technoguy: #9 and #13 look really good. Please don't think I am asking for changes but I am simply offering some feedback. I really like them both. The only thing I think I would change is perhaps simplify them a bit because while the Romanian theme with the massive Romanian flag as a background looks good, it looks a little too busy. So perhaps reduce the "stains" effect and just try a bolder font for the numbers. These are just some thoughts but nevertheless your entries look very good.

    3SS: thank you for the entry. It is a very stylish one and well put together. I understand you did something different but I think my mind is going towards a more stronger Romanian theme where the colors of the Romanian flag are more evident. Would it take a lot of effort to leave your logo as it is and change it mostly wo white and then apply it on some type of a background representing the Romanian flag or the colors of the Romanian flag? I am just looking for a stronger Romanian theme.

    vladmokan: thank you for the entry. While it certainly looks Romanian and as you know I appreciate your work I am finding it hard to say I do not believe it is one of your best logos I have seen. One element I really, really like though is that inside the yellow circle you also made the soldiers fully yellow which I think is a really good idea.

    RNHalawi.com, thanks for the kind words. Any chance you could drop an entry on this thread? :) I know the prize is small but perhaps if you have a spare minute....you can try.


    brainsurgeon: thanks for the entries. I really like your logo. Very nice, stylish and I also like the way you joined the circles. Great work. My only "problem" is that I am looking for a much stronger emphasys on the Romanian theme where the red yellow and blue are more visible so that way it can be identified right away as a Romanian thing.

    iamwiki: I really, really like them both. Right now together with technoguy are the ones I like the best. They both look really, really good. I am going to run them past some friends together with the ones from technoguy and see what they say.

    Thank you for the feedback. What I would like to understand is if you need a logo or a flyer? Where it would be used like web or print and what would be the background color of the image. That would help to customize it more.
