    Hi Designers.

    We are looking for a Logo for the site - Weslinden.com - Something fresh, fun, smart - smiley. We'll need a favicon also. Text to be included is the site name "weslinden.com"
    Our idea is to have signature style text with caricature/illustration of Wes arranged together that looks nice and basically represent his personality. But we are open to thoughts and ideas and the one that looks best to us will be chosen. A bit about Wes - He is a network marketer, public speaker, traveler, uncle, an author and one ready to help. People think of him as someone with a smile which we want to be conveyed in the logo as well.
    Here is Wes's image for caricature/illustration (please neglect the mic near his lips and its shadow) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzlK71CIgcDVQkc5WmNBdzJrVjJ4TlN0V3RuOUg1QURfLVhN/view?usp=sharing
    For example of signature style text please check these - https://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?...n=category&query=signature&page=1&layout=auto
    We have previously hired designer and paid him even though his work was not up to our expectations! Here is work (so that you know what we didn't like) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzlK71CIgcDVeXppeEZ1YW5pS0ZYWncwR2Q5MTJIWFdoVGp3/view?usp=sharing We thought it made Wes look bulky specially in the neck part, extra chubby, double chinned and the face was bit distorted which might be because of the mic so you actually need to be able to look beyond the mic.

    So the contest will be $75/72 hours. Payment through paypal once approved. It will help if designers submitting the work are available of minor tweaks. If we like an idea and that needs major edits we will pay extra.
    SEMrush
    Feel free to ask any question you may have. If you need more images of him for reference - https://www.facebook.com/weslindenuw/photos but we need the one given above to be used for caricature/illustration
    Looking for something real good :)

    Thanks
    Raj

    @avijitbhowmick
    Sorry but none of the three things look good.
    I have mentioned that we are looking for the text and the caricature/illustration both arranged together to form the logo as a single graphic.
    Also, in your attempt instead of eliminating the mic you have actually accentuated it (along with its shadow)! The mic should not be there nor its shadow. Not sure if you have actually worked on it or just applied an effect, if so please don't attempt it further. We need good caricature/illustration not some effect.

    @irah-
    As mentioned in our post, we need caricature/illustration based on the provided image. Besides that we can only comment once we have the full graphic.

    To all designers - Feel free to ask if you have any query.

    just an opinion, i think the task is not fit to be a contest because its hard,designers often think if one should lose this contest it would be a great waste, i think you should hire a designer fit for this project. i can do the job for you if you like, I'll make a draft, show it to you and it would be up to you if you think its good enough to continue the dedicated project.
    Thank you and best regards,
    Xdexter

    Sorry all.

    The stipulated time is way over. Not a single complete entry in the 72 hours. Contest called off.

    I feel sorry for irah. He should have got reward for that design.

    OP, you must understand how hard it is for someone to come up with an illustration as such.

    @irah-
    I am sorry too and I know how it feels, I have had work that took weeks rejected for hours delay. But there was a time frame for this.
    Wish you all the very best and success :)
