$95 logo contest - business advice site

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by craigedmonds, Jan 12, 2012.

    Hi All,

    I am creating another online business and I need some nice logos ideas.

    The business will be called "Get Ahead in Business" and we will be providing videos and articles to help people who are thinking to start a business or those who already have a small business but want some helpful advice. So the visitors to our site will be business people (or students) looking for advice on how to "get ahead" with their business or how to start a business.
    SEMrush
    You could also think that they are also going to "get a head" in business (like get smarter) if they use our site.

    Here are some guidelines.

    • Logo should immediately signify Business Growth or A head (male or female) or Ahead (as in moving ahead)
    • Logo should include the colour blue. We have discussed and agree that blue is a nice business color.
    • The blue should NOT be baby boy blue.
    • DEFINITELY DO NOT use the colour red. Red in this case is not a good colour for us.
    • Logo should be modern, vector style logo. Not complicated or "too" complicated.
    • Logo should look good on either white background OR black background.
    • DO NOT put any trees or plants growing or hands. There is enough business growth logos out there with these items and if I see another pair of hands with dirt in them with a plant sprouting I will scream!! LOL
    • PLEASE DO NOT PM me the entries, you must post them in the forum thread. I know some say that their design gets nicked but the nature of the contest is that its competitive and public.

    Additional help.
    Years ago we had a logo made for us for a competition we were sponsoring. I am not saying to use this logo but I think it kind of grasps some of the concept.
    see: http://www.123marbella.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/exchange-biz-brain.gif

    Closing date of Contest
    Wednesday 18th January 2012 - 6pm GMT

    Winner will be paid via paypal.Deliverables will need to be in .ai (Illustrator) format.

    Guys and Gals, I am looking forward to your entries!!
