Contest Road works company logo - 3 prizes - 1st prize $60AUD - instant Paypal

    Hi again to all you fantastic and creative designers. Another logo contest from me, this one is a graphical element suitable for a road works / bridge maintenance company.

    The business is called A l l - P u r p o s e - M a i n t e n a n c e (3 words / spaced to avoid search engines)

    The business performs all types of road works, drainage and bridge maintenance using excavators, Bobcats and diggers etc. It also does retaining walls and traffic management.

    This client is after a simple graphic element logo design to professionally brand his company with.

    Possibly something with the letters "A P M" and / or an excavator. The emphasis is on 'simple' but I also like 'clever'. The logo will be used for his stationery, on their web site, advertising and sign boards so needs to be resizable.
    SEMrush
    COLOURS: the company colour is BLUE but he is not stuck on colours so feel free to submit whatever looks good to you.

    FILE TYPE:
    I'm after a layered PSD, EPS or AI format. Prefer PSD.
    It will need to be vector to resize without loss of quality.

    RULES:
    All entries must be original design, no clipart, and needs to be sent to me in layered PSD, AI or similar format.
    All entries must be submitted in this thread.

    Once a winner has been chosen and the winners have been paid the winning designer agrees to hand all rights to the design over to my client. The winner may use their design for their own portfolio.

    PRIZES:
    I'm offering three prizes for this one
    , first prize of $60 AUD & two runner-up prizes of $20 AUD each.
    From previous experience the winning entry will be the one used but if the client decides he wants to use different components from 2 different designs then both entrants will share the first & second prize, ie; $40 each.

    TIME:
    This contest will run for up to 10 days and will close Monday 15th May at the latest. It may close before then if the client finds an entry he likes, so please get your entry in as soon as possible.

    I will present the first round of entries to the client on Monday the 8th of May and will provide you with the client's feedback here then. I may comment on entries but I am not the one who will decide the winner.

    Please get your entry in as soon as possible. If no design is suitable to the client after next Monday then only the contestants who have made an effort and submitted a design will be able to continue.

    Feel free to ask questions and submit your entry as soon as you can. Every suitable entry gets a like!

    That's all I can think of for now, i'm looking forward to seeing some very creative designs. Thank-you for reading and good luck to you all!

    Absolutely. Submit as many as you like.

    Can you also include a plain (flat) version of your entries ?

    The backgrounds do look good and they are suitable when I include them in pdf format, but they don't look good when printed.

    I always print out all entries and take them to the client where we lay out each one on the floor to decide the winner. The flat version is better for that purpose, plus uses less of my ink. :)

    Might also mention that the logo will be placed on his heavy machinery too, which is mostly yellowy/gold ie: Caterpillar.

    Probably best to have lighter backgrounds rather than dark. White is good too.

    HaHaHa. The contest holder (me) set the rules in the first post. It will run until my client has a logo he likes. It may be 3 days or a maximum 10 days depending on entries received. My job is making my client happy, however long that takes.

    I've run many contests here. One thing you cannot guarantee is getting a logo your client will love in just 3 days.
