    Hi

    I am looking for a logo for a new company called MARATHAN FILMS LTD

    This is what the client has sent:

    WE PRODUCE MUSIC DOCUMENTARIES FROM THE BEGINNINGS OF ROCK & ROLL TO PRESENT DAY ACROSS ALL GENRES OF MUSIC.

    A LOGO WHICH WILL WORK IN ALL FORMATS AND SIZES FROM LETTERHEADING TO BRAND IDENTIFICATION ON PUBLICITY MATERIAL AND SOCIAL MEDIA. COLOURS WHICH ARE MODERN AND VIBRANT WITHOUT SUGGESTING A PARTICULAR STYLE OF MUSIC.
    • Logo runs for 5 days but will extend if required
    • No clip art/copyright images please - original designs only
    • Logo must be suitable for web and print
    • Winner will be paid $40 via PayPal
    • If no suitable logo is found, we reserve the right not to appoint a winner
    We did have a previous design contest running for this company (see link below) and they found a logo they like from Creativerabi with red headphones.

    https://forums.digitalpoint.com/threads/logo-design-for-music-documentary-company-40.2869478

    However they discovered that this was very similar to a logo of one of their closest competitiors. We did pay Creativerabi for their design but we are now looking for an alternative design.

    New comments/ thoughts from client

    We thought about the name Marathan (which is a mix of our names Martin and Jonathan) but it does suggest how we feel about trying to make documentary programmes. It takes a long time to get one going and you do feel like you have run a marathon by the end. We thought about a single line drawing as per the logo for Mercury Studios (https://www.mercurystudios.co) with maybe a roll of film becoming the finishing tape in a race!!
    SEMrush
    Also we quite like the design in the original contest from Blkstrdst with the roll of film in blue inside the black head. Perhaps some deisgns along these lines could be worth exploring.

    Many thanks, Paul

    Thanks for entries so far.

    Please note:
    1. No more designs with headphones please
    2. They like the idea behind Blkstrdst's deisgn with the film in the head. Some variations on this theme would ne nice to see.

    Thanks
    Paul
