Contest Quick $25 Logo Contest (48 hours)

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Colby Bauer, Oct 19, 2014.

    This is for a iphone game app called 'Pic Play'. The game challenges players to see who can come up with the best caption for a photo.

    It needs to include the letters 'PP' in a creative but simple font as a flat image (no 3D effects).

    EXAMPLES OF FONT AND FLAT IMAGE:

    upload_2014-10-19_8-43-58.png upload_2014-10-19_8-53-50.png


    I also want a bright colored gradient for the background like this:
    upload_2014-10-19_8-50-49.png (not limited to these colors- just want bright)
    SEMrush

    **It needs to be in this square shape with rounded colors just like the examples above: the logo is for an app icon for the iphone.

    The winner will need to provide the logo in psd or vector (preferably both, but not required).

    All questions and submissions must be submitted through the thread. I will not take any PM-ed designs or questions.

    The contest is for 48 hours or until a clear winner is decided on. Please let me know in the thread if you have any questions.

    nelutu,

    Thank you for your quick submission!
    I like the creativity with making the camera the 'P'.
    I like the second gradient the best (green to blue).
    Try messing with the camera concept as the 'P' to make it more noticeable that it's a 'P'. Maybe try making the camera smaller or thinner or making the line that makes the P longer and connect it to the camera.
    Also try it without the shadow or try a different, smaller shadow (distracts from the gradient).

    Again thank you for your work!

    Thank you for your submission! I like the simplicity and the format of this.

    Try a few different fonts (more prominent) like:
    upload_2014-10-19_21-35-18.png

    *if somehow you could give the font an aspect of a camera (like nelutu's at the top of this thread) that would be ideal.
    -maybe something like the P is flashing like a camera or something (be creative).

    Also try it on a gradient with these colors:
    upload_2014-10-19_21-31-11.png

    I would also like to see what it would look like with the background white and the "P's", or just one "P", filled with the bright gradient. Like this: (except the black would be white)

    Here is my entry for the contest:

    [​IMG]

    Basic Design concept:
    That's a comment bubble in white and camera in blue.
    The lens coming out of the camera is also a photo roll, which creates the letter 'P'.

    Hope you like it. Feedback appreciated. Feel free to ask for changes.

    Thanks,
    Kris

    I really like this one. Thanks for taking my feedback and applying it.

    I like it a lot but I'm not sure I love it yet, but I don't know what it is.

    Can I see it with something small that will give it the camera or a game feel. Maybe using the play button:
    upload_2014-10-20_7-8-13.png
    or a camera flash or something.

    I like this one. Creative how you used the two P's. Thanks for your submission.
    I would like to see it with the P's a little bit smaller to let the icon breath a little bit more.
    Also see what it would look like with just one P or try the two P's in a different font. (just to give me more variation to choose from)

    Thanks!

    Kris,

    Thanks for you submission. Very creative with all of it. It fits the theme of the app very well.

    The design is too crowded with all these concepts. Choose one of the concept and make it clean. I like the idea of using the comment bubble. In fact the comment bubble you used almost looks like a P.

    Also change the colors to the color scheme.

    Thanks!
