Contest 48 Hour Logo Contest $33

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by mauiman, Aug 18, 2009.

    I need a logo for GovCon.net. The tagline is: "The Government Contractors Network"

    GovCon should have the G and C in caps and the rest in lower case. The .net should be part of the logo. (FYI: "GovCon" is widely used and refers to Government Contracting)

    The site is for business people involved or wanting to be involved in government contracting in the U.S.. So "cute" wont work here, but beyond that I look forward to your ideas and submissions. Having said that, this crowd has seen it's full of corporate logos, acronyms, and pillars (like on the dollar) so don't fall into line with everyone else before you.

    The background is white. Colors... green and/or blue and/or red. Please stay away from the typical red-white-and-blue scheme.
    SEMrush
    The contest will be open for 48 hours or until a logo is chosen. The winning design needs to be sent in a psd or vector format plus jpg, gif, or png. I will pay via paypal when I choose the winner.

    Please no PM-ed logos or questions. Submit them through the thread for the benefit of everyone else.

    Thanks in advance for your efforts! I appreciate your work!!

    Here's my concept Idea
    I know you mentioned staying away from the red / white / blue theme, but it seemed applicable in my concept idea to bring it all together with an official & authoritative crest feel.

    Revised Color Variation
    Here it is again focusing more on the Green / Red aspects (seemed to still blend well) :)

    scorpion - a quality entry. I appreciate you doing what you felt you should and not being "led" too much by me. It's a contender. The red white blue version works... the green red white looks like the Mexican colors and won't work with this emblem look.

    Thank you for participating.

    witcher - nice entry... thank you!

    Scorpion - I've come to dislike the eagle. It is off center and doesn't seem have an authentic look to it. Make sense?

    Still looking for more designs lurkers.

    Scorpion - I've decided against the "emblem" look and feel. Thank you for the effort!

    All - I need more of a Web2.0 look. If you have other logos you've done that you want to send me links to so you get more feedback before investing time feel free! I will also spend some time looking around for some logos I like to help steer..

    Thanks!

    Looking for a simple 'GovCon.net' along the lines of what you see in posts #3 & 8 above. I just don't like those versions much. Needs more something...?

    Underneath place the words "Government Contractors Network". If you can create a sharp looking design to fit on the left side that can be used for icons, shirts, side of my private jet, etc... that would be nice.

    I hope this helps those of you who can make words look marvelous!
