The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  kswlogo

Company Name: Krentz Case

Company Slogan: 

Description and What We Do: Krentz String Works is a small business that sells innovative products for string instruments, including wolf eliminators and endpins for cellos. www.krentzstringworks.com Krentz String Works is developing a new brand for its new, innovative line of string instrument cases that will be licensed. This brand is closely related to its parent brand, KSW, but is separate and will be marketed and distributed by another, much larger company with a worldwide reach. The new name for the brand will be Krentz Case. There should be clear continuity with the current logo for KSW, but with enough modification to distinguish Krentz Case as its own unique brand.

Industry Type: Miscellaneous

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1 Connection to its mother brand, Krentz String Works

#2 Modern (design, ideas, execution)

#3 High-quality (products, designs, innovations)

Our Target Audience:

This will initially be seen by classical musicians but the case company in the future will expand to all music cases for bands, etc. We would like the logo to be modern but timeless.

The target audiences will be all ages and levels of music endeavors but like Apple or Google, we wish to maintain and clear, sleek design in the logo that speaks to all demographics.

Great stuff again today. It's hard to decide which is the best way to make this related brand connect to its parent. Font or the crown? Certainly the colors. We like some of the use of additional grey to the black and the orange we know. We think the crown and color are probably the way to go, but we are ready to be educated!

However, we'd love to see some playing around with the crown itself, somehow keeping it recognizable without making it more complicated. The original of this crown came from a very old book. It was a woodcut. We use the woodcut version in an instrument label inside the instruments. Very cool.

We're also going to have to make sure that all logos look great in one color as well and without any 3D effects. Thanks to everyone who has been making their logos both in color and one color. They do look fantastic, but we need to know what we are going to look like in its worst version first.

Nice stuff here, thanks for all the creativity. We know it is hard to do, but we are looking for something that can be both obviously related to the parent company logo, but is also its own new identity. We feel that number one above and several others do that fairly well. However, it is difficult in forging the new identity to do more than simply tack on the old crown, although we realize it may not be possible. Is there a way to streamline and integrate any more? Maybe play with font?

A couple of these make us believe we could potentially drop the crown altogether if something were enticing enough.

Honestly, we are very pleased so far with what we've seen for options. Can't wait to see what else might come! This brand will be worldwide and could become quite large so we need to get it right. Thanks so much for your efforts.

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing LogoContest.com!

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

DO NOT FINALIZE YOUR CONTEST UNTIL ALL REVISIONS ARE MADE AND THE EXACT DESIGN YOU WANT IS SHOWING AND RANKED #1.

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 LogoContest.com 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.
