[Logo] Contest for Popular Ebay Software! $75.00

    phpBay Pro is a popular Ebay affiliate software product mentioned on the forums often. In preparation for the release of version 3.0, I'm looking for an exceptional logo to represent the product.

    I don't want to restrict your creativity, however, I'll share a few things that I like that may help you gain some inspiration. First, a sample header from the design I'm currently working on:

    [​IMG]

    And a blank slate for you to work with:

    [​IMG]

    1) The font used for "phpBay Pro" is Nueva Std, condensed/italic, 60px. I like this font, but I'm not married to it. Feel free to use it, and if you believe a better font would represent the logo, please try it. I don't want to limit your creativity.

    2) In the first image above, the "logo" I want would be circular and the size would be tall enough so that it sits to the left of the "phpBay Pro" text AND the byline underneath it. So the actual logo should be about the height of both the product name and the byline underneath it.

    3) I'm looking for unique, something creative, something simple, yet stands out and makes a statement. That's not easy to convey, however, here is a logo from a recent contest that caught my attention:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showpost.php?p=6730436&postcount=29

    The "circular" logo (not the text) is unique, looks good, nice colors for a dark header. Obviously don't use that exact design, but it's an idea of what appeals to me. I like a glossy effect too.

    I'll keep this open until March 3rd, 8PM US Central Time Zone. If I haven't found a logo I like by then, I may extend it. I reserve the right to end prematurely if I find the logo I like (so as not to have people working after my mind is already made up).
    SEMrush
    Use the blank header example above to submit your entry on, so I can see exactly what it will look like on the layout/design I'm working on.

    Good luck! Looking forward to seeing the ideas come about. Winner will be paid via Paypal. After payment, I will require Photoshop .psd file(s) (please do not merge layers) with all layers in tact in case I want to make any adjustments.

    Thank you for the design previews.

    anidesign - Needs more detail. Perhaps a bit too simplistic. I've posted some ideas below.

    ShadyLady - Interesting.

    Here are some ideas:

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6980.html

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6985.html

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6976.html

    Note that these are glossy, some are round, very detailed, unique and could easily be used as logos to the left of the software product title, "phpBay Pro"

    So it would show as: LOGO "phpBay Pro"

    Thank you!

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for your submissions. I'm going to post these again:

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6980.html

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6985.html

    http://www.templatemonster.com/logo-set/6976.html

    General feedback for everyone that I believe will help narrow things down:

    First link. On row one, second logo. It has a nice silver border. Not too thick, raised slightly. I like this.

    Second link. Row one, logo one and two...these are nice, I like the colors, the gradient, the glossyness. However, Row Two, logo two and four...I *really* like these! The size is right, the silver gradient border is not too thick or thin. The black one, with orange, really pops. The silver one with that blue, really pops.

    To narrow this even further, try to use ideas from the Second link information just above. For example, in Row two, the second icon is black in the center with orange slashes. Instead of slashes, try pBP there. Same with the fourth logo, replace the blue character with pBP.

    But do you have any feedback on the current logos submitted?
