Contest $40 Logo Contest - Ends 01.08.2016

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by jfontestad, Jan 4, 2017.

    Hello all,

    I invite everyone to participate in this contest as I am looking for a simple logo design to use for a new initiative.

    *I am looking a simple, professional, and modern design that could be easily identifiable when seen.
    *It needs to be scalable (vector), and blend well with other colors (ex.: different background colors).
    *I am thinking something flat with a modern *simple* font-face.
    *Color schemes have not been defined, but I usually am drawn towards the shades of blue. *Doesn't have to be a shade or shades of blue, am open to anything that looks good.
    *The logo will have two elements to it; the logo should be able to be identifiable on its own, yet blend in seamlessly with the company name when both are used in conjuction. Elements are:
    -a logo (should not be too busy, i like simple, elegant, yet identifiable)
    -title of initiative

    The name of the initiative is CloudApps.

    The contest would be for the all rights to the logo, all files and fonts used for the logo and the logo itself.
    SEMrush
    Contest will end on Sunday, January 08, 2017. *May be extended to Monday.

    Payment will be made via PayPal as soon as final product is approved and delivered.

    Looking forward to all submissions, and thank you.

    @dikoka I appreciate the entry.

    *One thing that I forgot to mention earlier is that I wish for the logo to be as original as possible.

    If I can find it, or something very similar to it on google when simply typing in "Cloud logo", then the entry will not be considered.

    Thanks!

    I appreciate the entry and it looks great! Thank you!

    A few observations:
    *I am looking for the design to be flat (at least for now), both the logo and text.

    I think this looks great! But a little out of focus with the rockets, no?

    Thanks!

    I appreciate your entry, but not necessarily the direction I was looking to go to.
    The colors are a bit dark, and the font face for the text is not quite what I am looking for. Looking for modern looking flat text and lighter shades of blue or even grey.

    Thank you for your submission. I like the text, but the 'A' sohuld be capitalized to differentiate it as its own word 'Apps'.
    The logo looks great, but not exactly what I am going after.

    Simple, and different. :cool: It looks awesome, unique. Only thing I would change is the font, as it is a bit "pointy". I think I am looking for something softer, more round.

    I like how you played with the wording and the graphic of the cloud and integrated them. It looks good, thank you.
    One observation, the gears as part of the logo, it's not what I am looking for as far as the theme.

    Thank you for your submission. I like the bottom versions the best.
    Observation: The text can use a little more personality and the spacing can be closer.

    *****

    To all, I've gone through the submissions as of now and I want to thank you all for your efforts! I went ahead and commented on all of the entries (*I think I did at least) as to my observations.

    After seeing the entries here are a few general thoughts.
    * The representation of 'tiles' as "apps" would be nice if it were tied into the logo somehow. Maybe within the text or maybe with the cloud graphic.
    * Maybe a cloud (same style that most of you posted) graphic made up of tiles (flat w/ generic icons) that represent apps.
    upload_2017-1-5_8-9-48.png
    ***Maybe something like this where the little squares are little icons of 'apps'. The cloud can be solid of just outlined.

    *Maybe something similar can be done with the text... CloudApps <- and have the ending letter or last few letters breaking away into 'app' tiles.

    The shape of the cloud doesn't have to be the same as the one above, I just posted that for illustration.

    ****This is merely a suggestion, if you have an idea then by all means please go with it.

    Again, I appreciate everyone's efforts and look forward to revisions and new entries.

    Thanks to all of you!
