Contest 8 day $100 paper airplane vector logo design, high quality entries only.

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Sapphiro, Dec 2, 2016.

    Hi all,

    I'm currently representing a company called "Flying Chalks", website address at flyingchalks[dot]com but I'm looking to give it a rebranding as well as a website remake. A real good one, nothing less from exceptional quality.

    The current logo right now is somewhat mediocre, hence I'm posting up this new contest for us to pick our really next logo. We want to be the AirBNB for international exchange students, expect your logo work to be seen or mass marketed.

    Logo Requirements
    - "Flying" "Chalks" (as in the chalks used for writing things on a black chalk board)
    - Concept: Open for great ideas, but if you don't have a better one, the safer concept to go is to go for a paper airplane vector logo, with 3 chalks on top of it. (the chalks can be in light blue, another in pink, another in "yellowgreen" color.). The chalks can be resting on top of the airplane, or under it, and pointing in the same direction as the "pit" or front of the airplane. The airplane angle CAN BE pointing towards the audience, but a better one would be angled diagonally, turning towards the viewers. The design of the airplane can be simple airplane design, or even better, if you can come out with complicated airplane designs:
    - Underneath the vector paper airplane + chalks graphic logo, we should also have a bold/fat font text "Flying Chalks"

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The plane can also have 1 or 3 dotted lines behind it trailing like this pic above, but only thing i want the angle to be facing towards audience, and also this logo above looks a little bit too simple for us to become a billion dollar company some day. We need it to be vector, simple, yet creative and top-class. I want a logo that one look at it, people will know it's a respectable top class company, and our company aims to be the top in the field for student exchange.

    Other aspects of the logo, feel free to use creative freedom as long as it can portray a top class billion dollar company vibe to it. (Maybe polygon logo designs? etc)

    Below is not the concept but the graphic and standard of work is good:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Color Scheme:
    - Officially, our website's main color scheme will be 80% white color, some 15% orange, and the rest 5% will be sky blue, bright pink and "yellowgreen". The chalks should reflect skyblue, bright pink and yellow green, while the airplane vector should be 90% white, but can also have a little bit of orange and black to make it look slightly more complexed to a simple design.

    Skyblue: #66CCFF
    Yellowgreen: #CCFF99
    Lightpink: #FF99FF
    Some full black #000
    Mostly plain white #FFF
    some orange: #FF8822
    SEMrush
    Thanks.


    8 days contest, ends on 10 december, ONLY if there are great entries.
    Expect fast feedbacks, other than tomorrow which I may take a longer time to give feedbacks.

    Please design using adobe illustrator, no photoshop-designed logo, thanks!

    Color scheme to consider:
    [​IMG]
    1. Light blue (chalk 1)
    2. Yellow-near lime green (chalk 2)
    3. Pink (chalk 3)
    4. White (paper airplane should be 90% plain white)
    5. Black (for the paper plane tip, etc)
    6. Orange (for paper plane tip etc, along with black color)

    Part 3, last post for the requirements.

    These are also some very sick looking paper airplane logo designs for you to consider making into a vector version (with the chalks on top or below it also of course! :))

    P/S. Ours is a student platform, so even though we have a paper plane concept to represent "flying", don't overdo it too much like it's alien/high tech military logo.. :) Thanks! (Other than paper plane concept, you can also explore other areas to represent the 'flying' 'chalks' concept if you think you got a better idea, please feel free to go ahead)

    Not bad, but not quite right, the main concept is actually flying chalks, so the chalks should be sitting on the plane etc, maybe the plane can also horizontal flip. Thanks for your entry

    hmm good attempt but not really liking this concept

    Good concept, I think I like it, but ultimately I'll leave it to the 2 company founders to decide, I think I can say you're currently leading with this entry


    Mascot entries are also welcome!

    Feel free to also remake this
