The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  jas61

Company Name: Star Friedman Challenge for Promising Scientific Research

Company Slogan: 

Description and What We Do: This is an award given to some of the highest minds in the global science community.

Industry Type: Education

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1 Serious academic/scientific research award challenge

#2 Crisp, clean and professional

#3 Used for both print and online

Our Target Audience:

The award is given to some of the highest minds in the global science community - it should feel like an appropriate symbol for an academic science group.

We Like These Colors:

Black, crimson, white and then, if necessary, gold (the image I will upload contains an original gold telescope from the 1700's and we like the idea of it being a part of the logo, or not but if so, it is gold and might look most well-represented in that fashion).

Thank you EVERYONE for all of your designs. We appreciate all the hard work and talent that has been shown throughout the competition. That said, we will be working with the administrators to purchase the logos listed as the top FOUR.

We enjoy hosting contests and hope to work with you all again soon!
Thank you!

This logo will sometimes be used near, or in connection with, the Harvard University logo, which I have uploaded for comparison. I am not trying to match the style of the Harvard logo, although we want the colors of the Challenge logo to be coordinated with the Harvard logo

Hello all! Thank you for participating in our contest. We are please about the progress we have made already and look forward to seeing more exciting designs. We are not married to the idea of using the microscope and have enjoyed seeing other icons, scientific and not, appear along the way. We have decided that we really like the following:
- The layout/orientation that has "Star Friedman Challenge" in bigger/bolder font and then "for Promising Scientific Research" in smaller, less bold font.
- The fonts with more clarity
- The use of different icons
Please keep submitting different variations on color and other tweaks and we will continue to update and order our preferred logos.
Thank you again!

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.
