Contest Logo for Startup CNC Company - $50 PayPal - 1 Week

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by bpack14, Jan 28, 2019.

  1. #1
    I have a client who is looking for a logo for his CNC Startup company. We will run the contest for 1 week and the winner will be awarded $50 via PayPal once the files have been delivered.

    We reserve the right to not choose a winner if the client is not satisfied with the entries.

    Thank you all and good luck!

    ------------------------------------------------------
    Company Name: D3 CNC

    SEMrush
    Logo Details:

    Inspiration: aviation (helicopters and airplanes - old and new), classic British motorcycles, nature (New England, ponds, rivers, pine trees, small mountains), log cabins (cozy), animals (dogs, goats, moose, deer, black bear, small birds).

    Looking for timeless, classic and clean overall, with a gentle nod to retro and cool, a fun vibe that somehow combines "modern precision machining with the handmade touch".

    Prefer more modern and clean typography over whimsical and script.

    Logo should be monochromatic (no gradient / shaded elements). Open to black, white, blue, green, yellow, and orange colors

    Open to an icon element but if included should not be too detailed and only include open line art (no solid fill unless "negative space"). Open to abstract or literal representation.

    The main constraint is that the logo needs to be easily reproduced and 'carved' by the CNC machine...IE: something a 'rubber stamp' or 'branding iron' could also easily reproduce.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Company Details:

    Mostly custom, small-scale manufacturing of craft & home decor items IE: plaques, signs, cutting boards, frames, ornaments, keychains, small furniture, desk accessories, stands, pen holders, boxes, doodads, trinkets, widgets, gizmos, etc. (Etsy / Pinterest 'stuff')

    Items are made from wood, plastic, and soft metals (aluminum, brass, copper)

    Designs start out with pen and paper, then modeled in CAD. Parts are ultimately produced utilizing a CNC router machine (CNC = computer numeric controlled) and then assembled using various hand-finishing / craftsman techniques (sanding, painting, staining, etc.).

    "D3" is a play on "3D" in reference to the capability of the CNC machine but more subtly to the fact that the business owner is a "3rd"...carries his grandfather's and father's name.

    Please visit https://www.inventables.com "X-Carve" based businesses for examples / similar business models. Owner's CNC is not an X-Carve specifically but very similar.

    HI Collegerut,

    Thank you for the design...the icon is interesting, maybe a bit too "tactical" though. One inspiration might be an "endmill"...if you were to look at one straight on the way the cutting flutes spiral is unique.
