Contest Artsy Instagram Profile Picture/Logo - Sketch Card Collector - $30 PayPal

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by bpack14, Mar 12, 2019.

  1. #1
    Hello artists, I need a nice artistic looking Instagram profile picture. The Instagram account it will be used for showcases "sketch cards" which are 2.5" x 3.5" cards of original artwork. I would like something more of a "logo" than just a picture so I can print out business cards in the future if I need to.
    SEMrush
    here is the account to get an idea: @sketchcardcollector (sorry it would not let me link it, says HTTP error, but that is the account name if you want to check it out)

    Name: Sketch Card Collector
    Colors: No preference, just artistic looking and simple
    Size: I need Instagram profile size (circular), so if the artist wants to provide both logo and profile photo once completed that would great

    Timeframe: I'll run this contest for 5 days, I may end the contest early if I find a entry that I really like

    Thank you all, looking forward to see what you come up with!

    @getdomain4u Thanks for your entry but this looks too much like a poker chip to me and there's too much going on, maybe remove the textured background, remove the white overlay brush and try a different font? I do like the watercolor brush though



    @ngodz I like the idea here but I feel like it won't translate too well with how small the instagram logo profile photo looks, I like the gold border, it reminds me of a golden ticket which is kind of like what pulling a sketch card out of a box of trading cards is like, like pulling the willy wonka golden ticket. I do not like the SC script font used here, maybe close the border to make it all 1 piece , keep "collector" where it's at and just fill "sketch card" where "SC" currently is

    @nayirpro thanks for providing what the instagram profile size would look like, could you make Sketch font the same font and style used for "card", also move collector to the left a little so it fits within the circle and could you fill the card with a gold like gradient? and maybe fill the entire card with color...? thank you for your entry

    @remus94 I like the simplicity of this one but I don't like the "S" it looks like a musical note, are there 2 fonts at play here or just 1? I'd maybe like to see a different script font used. I like the first logo better

    @collegerut Thank you for your entry but not what I'm looking for

    @Quellculate Thanks for providing the previews, that was helpful. Could you try just maybe a 2 font combo instead of 3? and for the rectangle, make it vertical (card shape) and put all the lettering inside? I think script and sketch style fonts would be best


    Thanks for all the entries so far, I don't see anything yet that is a clear winner.

    From what I've seen so far I like legible script style and brush style fonts, no more than 2 types of fonts. I like the idea of a trading card with a border and just incorporating the name into it, I think soft "watercolor" colors for an artsy approach or black text with gold solid/gradient card/border would be good. Or maybe something like a stamp style logo for "stamp of approval" or just something as simple as a script or brush style font with a splash of watercolor.....let's keep it simple though, nothing too busy and it needs to be legible when viewed from profile page

    thank you everyone!
