$35.00 Logo Contest

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Hades, Dec 25, 2007.

    Hello Dpers and Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays.

    I come to you with a need for a logo designed and I will pay the winner $35.00 for it. This contest will end on December 27th.

    I need a logo designed for a designing/scripting website. I would do it my self, but I am to busy coding the actual site to worry about this.

    The colors I am using the in the design are as follows:

    bg: #84171b to #000000 gradient, and #5f5f5f to #000000 gradient
    titles: #a5a5a5
    links: #5f5f5f
    text: #000000

    The size will vary. But overall you have a space of 400x110 to work with. I've included an image of the current header. You can put the logo anywhere in the white space. The little gray part will be a simple navigation bar, so keep that in mind.

    I want it to be professional looking, or at least very nice looking. The design im making doesn't use curved corners or anything like that.

    The site name is ndesignz.net . It stems from "design", and my name "nick zakharyan" and then "designs", if you can see that :p, so I need the name of the site to be in the logo. Or maybe just the 3 letters and under it have ndesignz.com. Also, don't use capital letters. I want you to use small letters.

    Ill give feedback as I see more releases.

    If you guys have any questions, just tell me.

    I don't have a slogan for it, but if anyone can come up with a nice slogan (i have to use it on my site), i will pay them $5.00.

    Not really what I am looking for. It looks nice, but im looking for something more personal, while still being very professional. And it needs to fit onto a white background.

    The website that is up on the site right now is just an old template. I am in the process of designing a template right now. I have provided the hex codes for the template design that I am making.

    Regarding the logo: It'snot really what im looking for either, and it really won't fit in with the new colors.

    The background should still stay white.

    Ok, I am looking forward to your entry.

    Thanks, but that's just too basic, since I can do that in under a min in photoshop. Im really looking for something very complex. Would prefer if it would be done in illustrator, though it doesn't have to be.

    Hmm. I don't like the sphere with the N in it. It's not really about my name, but more about a business type thing. Also, I don't think the yellow and orange fit that nicely into the design. (Look for a link at the bottom)


    Not really sure why, but I don't like this one that much. Try taking out the big curved background you got in there, and due somethign with the site title.




    So far, these two are my favorites. It's gonna be hard choosing between the two.

    @mitchar: I absolutely love yours, though I think in the little wheel thing, the color should be changed to something other than orange. I'm not sure how it will look in the design.

    @i_luv_pitza: I don't know what to say. It's really nice. Can you do one thign for me though? Try changing the font of "ndesignz.net" to "Trebuchet MS" (that's the font im using for the design) and also, if you could, provide a copy that's desaturated.

    Overall guys, great designs, and I am looking forward to more entries from people who haven't posted yet, but have messaged me saying they would.

    Here is a link to the template: www.ndesignz.net/blog

    It doesn't work in IE yet, so you will have to look at it in either FF or Opera. Also it's not finished yet, as I still need to tweak some minor bugs, and add a footer, but just so you get the idea.
