    Hi, this is my first time posting a contest. Do pardon me for being unfamilar with the system.
    I would need a logo and a square icon designed for a university forum specifically for Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

    Website name: NTUforum.com
    Requirement:
    - The logo should consist of the word "NTUforum.com".
    - Background should be transparent
    - Color scheme should look and feel professional (try to use a maximum of 2-3 colors)

    Rule:
    - No infringement of any copyright *important*
    - End product should be in psd format

    Submission:
    - Submission can be via posting here, pm or email to

    Feel free to contact me if you have any queries. I would try my best to give reviews and feedback. Try to be as creative as possible.

    Winner might be given future design project oppotunity.

    Note: In case anyone misunderstood the requirement, by square icon, i refer to a small image maybe 100x100px for it to appear nicely on facebook. I do not refer to adding a square into the logo.
    So the final submission will consist of a 100x100px (or any square) icon and a logo image.


    NEW: It would be nice if you could use a mascot in the logo or icon. Thanks!

    blade001: i would need a logo and a square icon. Look forward to your submission.

    vinodkumar: thanks for the submission, i find the image too messy, i would prefer a simpler one, so that at first glance the user will know "oh that is NTUforum.com!". Do try another approach. Try to use a maximum of 2-3 colors.

    p.s: I have updated the requirement.

    Hey guys, sorry, i forgot to add. It is an unofficial community forum for the university community. So do let your creativity run wild. Do not be restricted by the word "university".
    Design your image as if it is for a local community for the youth.

    I would like more emphasis on the word "NTU" and lesser on "forum.com" so try to use a smaller font for the word "forum.com".

    Looking forward to more submission. =D

    Thanks ppl, for the great submission. Here's my feedback.

    hpaul2: I really like your design, simple and to the point. It would be nice if you could add one/two more element into it to give it some uniqueness. Like how digitalpoint logo have the diamond thing and how amazon logo has the strip below. Do send in more entries.

    Satchii: I can't tell you how much i love the 2 balls on top. They are so cute. As for the words, i find that it's too glossy. Also are you able to make an horizontal version of the logo? Because i would like to fit it into a banner eventually.

    I hope my feedbacks help.

    IMPORTANT:
    Due to timezone difference, I apologise for not able to give a timely feedbacks. Therefore I shall extend the deadline of the contest by another 28 more hours.

    This contest will end in another 28 hours time.
    Everyone do submit your entries early so that I'm able to give you feedbacks. Thanks!

    Satchii: nice attempt! Is this your final submission? If you still want to improve on it, maybe you might want to try out some other fonts or color scheme? Also i find that the left is slightly empty, might want to consider up the size of the word "NTU".

    I put in 2 more images with the edits~
    Total of 3 images should be in my final post (excluding this one :p)

    It is indeed my final submission. I can always change the color scheme easily to whatever suits your personal likings but I for this demonstration I used blue because I think its nice, cool and collective for our cold winter season~!
    && I think the font seems just right in terms of being sleek and bold :D

    oops.. i just saw them. Really nice. I did receive a few nice entries via pm too.
    Seem like it will be a tough decision for me.

    The contest will end in about another 24 hours time as agreed. Do check back for the result.

    Meanwhile the contest is still open for more submission!

    Dear all,

    The contest has ended. Thanks for all the active participation. I've received quite a few entries and was having a hard time making decision. So I get a few friends to be the judges.

    I shall now announce the winner.

    Winner: jhaye
    [​IMG]
    This entry is simple yet elegant. I especially like the icon by the left. It fit perfectly into the theme.


    1st Runner-up: Satchii
    [​IMG]
    I would like to give special mention to Satchii who have came up with a really cute design. I love it a lot.


    2nd Runner-up: crowquill
    [​IMG]
    I can see that crowquill put a lot of effort into his entry. He definitely deserve the acknowledgement.


    Congratulation to the winners. The prize money goes to jhaye this time. The runner-ups will each receive a positive iTrader feedback for the effort they put in.

    I hope everyone enjoy yourselves! Cheers! =D

    Since it is my first time hosting a contest, I will appreciate if anyone can give me feedback on how you find this contest so that I can do better next time. Be assured that there is more to come. =D
