Contest 30$ logo contest for remodeling/handyman company (72 hours)

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by webtarded, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. #1
    Hi everyone. I'm helping a friend out for this contest, so ultimately he'll be the judge of the entries. That said, he's starting a construction company.

    The primary areas of his work will be remodeling,handyman, repairs, property maintenance type jobs. He'd like a more professional upscale look to fit the area he'll be working in.

    His customers are very interested in green building. So he'd like to have some kind of tie-in to green building (environmentally friendly, sustainable, energy saving, less wasteful, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_building). I'm not a designer, so however you integrate that into the overall design is up to you. At the very least one of the main colors should be green to reflect that.

    If you search google or bing for remodeling logos, you'll notice that at least two thirds of them have some kind of roofline or house theme in them.

    Here's a couple examples
    https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=remodeling+logo

    http://www.bing.com/images/search?q...vt=remodeling+logo+designs&FORM=IGRE#x0y18188

    I'm not saying don't put that in the logo, just that if you do please make it unique since it seems everyone does it.

    Try to use no more than 3 colors. 2 would be better since he'll probably be printing business cards, tshirts, advertising etc. and less colors = cheaper printing costs.
    SEMrush

    The name of his company is:
    Hathco Services

    The tagline is:
    Remodeling-Repair-Renovation



    I found a link from another contest posted here that gave some good construction logo ideas. I'm not sure if it will help you, but it helped me to get ideas to write up this contest since i suck at design. :p

    http://speckyboy.com/2010/07/09/30-construction-logos-for-inspiration/


    1. It needs to be vector and in .psd format
    2. PLEASE POST ALL ENTRIES IN THIS THREAD ONLY. Do NOT pm me with your entries. I won't read them and he won't see them. I'm going to send him a link to this thread so that he can look at them and give you feedback.
    3. Identify the font and provide the font if licensing permits used in the logo so that i can make edits if needed in the future.
    4. Feel free to ask any questions
    5. I will pass on all feedback that he provides to me.
    6. Payment will be by paypal at the end of the contest
    7. Going to try to do this in 72 hours. If he finds a design that he likes, he'll end the contest early.

    I think that's everything. If i think of anything else, or he brings something else up i'll be sure to let you know.

    Thanks and good luck!

    I'm going to edit my original message to remove my comments about the roofline. I don't want to restrict any good ideas. Thanks guys so far for the entries. A few quick notes that i've gathered. Personally, i think all of these designs are pretty good. The comments i'm leaving are constructive and based on my friends thoughts.

    Nice colors. Overall pretty good look. The hammer in the h looks a little strange though it should look more like a claw hammer, and the leaf could be a little smaller maybe balance the size of the hammer -- Seems to overpower it. I think this is a design that would look better with a roof line.

    It's nice, but it's got more of a city feel to it -- it's got a highrise feel to it. Not a fan of the blue. You don't have the tagline either.

    Not bad. Kind of feels like the house is jammed in there though. The font size of the two words seems different and catches his eye, but not in a good way. Colors are good though.



    Thanks for the entry. It's not the direction he's looking to go.

    PLEASE POST YOUR ENTRY IN THIS THREAD like i requested in the contest guidelines, and i'll gladly give you some feedback

    Can't wait to see it.


    It looks very nice. It's got a good feel to it. The wrench doesn't fit though. If it were a hand holding a hammer, or nailgun or handsaw, that would fit better. The wrench is more for a mechanic. The orange is interesting though. Would like to see it in a bold green HATHCO with black tagline for comparison.



    Overall, these are great so far! Still waiting for more entries.

    Thanks again everyone. Great Designs overall! I haven't talked to my friend today, but i'll give my feedback based on what we talked about last time i spoke to him.


    Very nice design. The one with the logo to the left looks better in my opinion. I can't think of anything to change, i think you did great with the colors, they fit well together.



    Thanks for the update. Probably not the look he's going for though.



    Hi there, and thanks for entering. It's very interesting, but not sure it's a good fit with what he's going for.



    Thanks for the update. The hammer definitely looks much better. Nice job. The orange and green would probably be the way to go, the all green looks too bland. The only other suggestion that i'd forgot the first time was to put www.hathco.com in place of the phone number. Overall great look though.

    Again, thanks everyone. Great stuff.
