Contest B2B Logo Design - $20

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Investawise, May 22, 2019.

  1. #1
    Looking for a new, more modern looking logo for my site: https://www.business4beginners.co.uk/
    SEMrush
    You can see that the existing logo doesn't fit in the site design anymore and, besides, it's several years old and is looking a bit dated.

    Ideally, I'd like to keep close to the colour scheme that's on the site at the moment. The logo should also incorporate some kind of icon (though it doesn't have to be the lightbulb) so that the icon can work as a favicon.

    Additionally, the logo should work both in wide horizontal size and a square version for use on different platforms. Happy for the .co.uk to be dropped from the site name if it helps the design.

    One final thing, as well as both wider horizontal and square versions, I'd also like the logo to be able to be inverted so it can be used on either a light or dark background. So keep it flat without gradients.

    The website targets UK startups and so should be professional and trustworthy but with a modern twist.

    Contest is open until we find a winner, there's no hard deadline but I will give everyone a 24-hour heads up before the contest is closed. $20 to the winner.

    Just to add, I'd like to look at also adding the following tagline:

    This is particularly important if you decide to drop the '.co.uk'

    Not too keen on this one to be honest. I see what you tried to do with the icon but I don't think it quite works. Also, the font is just too plain.

    To be honest, none of these are quite working for me so far.

    EDDesign - I don't think this makes it easy to ready what the brand name is. Kind of also reminds me a convenience store too for some reason.

    Orlando M - It's OK but not really enough to it, feels a bit plain and the icon doesn't really have any significance.

    Creativediva - It's OK but not keen on the font, the B on 'Beginners' in particular looks quite strange.

    Thanks Creativediva - It's probably my favourite entry so far but not sure it's the winning one.

    I think the 'B4B' bit is a bit overpowering, perhaps distracts from the actual site title too much. Also would need the tagline adding since the .co.uk has been removed.

    Keep the entries coming!

    Pehulz - Sorry not keen on this one, I think it looks quite dated unfortunately and the colour scheme doesn't really work for my site.

    Resmus - It's Ok but looks a bit like a racing brand or something although i do like the idea.

    Getdomain4u - I quite like this one but not sure about the paper plane, do you have any other icon ideas?

    Puttu - Sorry but don't think this quite works. It's not a million miles off but doesn't quite have the professional look I'm after.
