The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  ayockey

Company Name: Mill Creek

Company Slogan: Party in the Pasture

Description and What We Do:  3 day event with camping (RV and Tenting), live country music out in a pasture next to a creek. We would like to have the name Mill Creek in the logo with the word festival included, but do not want the word music in front of festival. We want Mill Creek to be the larger sized font and festival smaller. We would like to have the state of Iowa incorporated into the logo with a water wheel mill too. We are open to any color combinations but would like to stay with brighter colors. We do not want any logo with a guitar in it. These are only suggestions and are open to other great ideas. Thank you for your assistance.

Industry Type: Entertainment

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1 Name: Mill Creek Festival

#2 State of Iowa outline in background - You can mark entertainment location is middle of left side of state

#3 Fun country music festival with camping and atv's

Our Target Audience:

Concert & camping weekend partiers (21 to 50 year old people that want to have a great time..). Location is rural Iowa in the middle of nowhere and 15,000 people attendance. People drinking lots of beer and hard drinks. People attending farmers and working class people wanting to get away and have a good time for the weekend. It has a 50/50 mix male and females and no kids. We have had an old logo with a guitar before and don't want that type of design.

We Like These Colors:

Grey Black White

It was a very tough decision. The designs you created were exactly what we wanted and we could have easily picked any of the top 5. This was the first time I have used this website and I was very pleased with how it works and the creativity of all of the designers. It was a wonderful experience. I appreciate the time you spent designing and trying to change your designs to fit our requests. I will recommend you to anyone interested in designing a logo.
Thank You!

I had a meeting with all of the people and they stated that the logo design was to busy. They had stated that they liked the uploaded logo design, can you reference the new uploaded logo and make modifications to it on the other designs which we have liked. We are wanting to go with a simpler design style. On the design I have uploaded we do not want the Music it is just Mill Creek Festival. I know this seams like a step back up I sure it will fall together once the two styles are incorporated. Please post any questions you might have. Thank You

On future designs please do not add Party in the Pasture. We are thinking simpler will look better. Thank You

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.


1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)

5. Please rank the designs 1 to 10 and there are also options to rank Elements you like, Colors you like, and Fonts you like. This will help guide the designers toward the design that you are looking for. For the best variety of designs, try not to keep the same design ranked #1 for an extended time as this may result in copying of that design.

6. We require that you do not ask one Designer to use elements or concepts from another Designer. The general rule is that, if a Designer was the first to use and submit the idea in one of their designs, they essentially own that concept or idea for the remainder of the contest. We will remove any deisgns that use copied concepts. Requests or ideas you have put in your Contest Brief or posted as contest attachments are fair game and open to everyone. Concepts that are considered obvious will also be fair game, for example: a dog & cat for a pet hospital, shopping bag for an e-commerce company, a tooth for a dentist, initials for a lawyer, etc.

7. Once your contest ends and is in judging mode, any designer that is ranked #1 #2 #3 #4 or #5 will be able to upload any revisions you request. Simply rank a designers entry to allow revisions to be uploaded.


Discussion Guidelines:

1. Designers and Contest Holders please always be respectful of each other, we all have the same goal.

2. Please do not criticize any design publicly, these discussions should only be held in private.

3. Designers may not post any external links to any designs.

4. Please do not ask a contest holder to view your designs or discuss any other designs.

5. Designers can not discuss copied designs on the contest pages and may submit a Logo Dispute to the Admin only.


Our team at as well as our designers will make sure you are 100% satisfied and want you to leave here with a design that you love!

Please recommend us to your friends and business associates for all of their logo design and web page design needs.
