Contest $50 Logo + Header 3 days contest (Niche DIY)

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by xxMirceaxx, Oct 6, 2013.

    I need a header for my diy website! You must also make a logo, as I don't have one!
    Header size 960 × 150 pixels. Make it transparent and somehow draw attention to the social media icons, as they will overlap on the header.

    The ideas is to have a head/cranium/brain filled with tools for diy that suggests the idea of a maniac (hammer, etc, but also something that relates to healthy living/eating - i don't know, currently my idea for this is a leaf, hopefully you can come up with something better). I'm sure there are better ideas out there, so looking for your creativity. It's very possible to have more winners if the entries are really good.

    Try to match the logo & header with the rest of the site and also post an image with how the header integrated into the design within your entry.

    The contest will end in 3 days if I get decent entries.
    Otherwise, I reserve the right to extend it/not choose a winner (hopefully, it won't be the case).

    Best,
    Mircea

    What the text you want for your logo? DIY & Crafts for Maniacs or diymaniacs?

    @Denisa, cool can't wait to see your entry. :)
    @Alisa..I'll go with DIY Maniacs, as it would be too long otherwise. BUT, if you have a great idea on how to put it together I encourage you to do so - I like creative designers that can surprise me. Waiting for your entry

    @normanmagallanes a quick, friendly advice that might prove valuable to you in the future - read the OP first, try to understand what is saad, visit the site where the logo will be used, then start thinking of a concept. At least you will have a small chance..
    And about the feedback, well..if you are proud of what you sent me, we have very different standards.

    Q: Do you want all header changed? Like background color, search-box, menu and social icons all new?

    Remus, thanks for submitting the first actual entry in this competition. You have a lot of skill for your age, and I foresee a nice career for you in this field ;) What you submitted is not bad, but I would prefer something friendlier. A skull isn't exactly the best way of portraying a nice lady's diy blog, imo.
    P.S. Apologies for not being clearer about the header. I would prefer having something that encourages readers to check the social buttons, as well as inducing the feeling of familiarity - probably the best approach is using some graphics that look hand-drown. I don't have a specific idea though.

    Hi Mircea,

    here are my entries. I would like to hear what do you think about it. It occurred to me to create a "origami bird" and do not even know why It occurred to me. Origami for me symbolizes a hobby, work and freedom. The second image has hanging banner that maybe say to visitors "look at me", but I don't think. I tried a lot of colors, but purple/dark pink I like the most (or red too). White is indistinctive and if you think that the social icons needs to accentuate, it would be good to have a distinctive icons, but also the logo.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback,
    Denisa
