Dear designers, it's the first time I've tried logocontest.com and when I started the contest days ago, I had no clue what to expect. I'm just writing this to thank you all and let you know that I'm truly impressed by all the talent represented here. I'll spend my next weeks validating all the incoming suggestions and it's not going to be an easy job. You have delivered beyond what I could imagine - thanks you soooo much all of you.

Just an idea, if some of you are ready to play along - could the 8 be part of the logo like a TM in the corner?

And I like the white background, but please don't use red - I'm not going to choose a logo with red - all other colors, also logos with more than one color could be interesting as long as it's "simplified" in the total expression.

After having looked at all the talented suggestions, I think it's important to note:

defacto should be the main attention when looking at the logo. If using the subtext "optimizing customer experience", then this is the 2. priority for readers to catch and the 8 should be part of the logo, but in a more subdued color/sense, so it's not taking all the attention. Hope it makes sense - and red is not optimial color in terms of my target group, I think - but all other colors are more than welcome when playing with the 8.

If adding a subtext, which might be a good idea, I think: optimizing customer experience, will cover the companytasks better :-). You guys rock!

Wow, I'm very impressed by the creativity you're all representing. After I've seen some of your suggestions, I think we can eliminate red as a color included in the logo. Going for any thing else is possible, but please have in mind it should be part of a very simple website, only in black and white (no pictures at all). Thanks :-)

Is it possible to make the 8 a more integrated part of the companyname, like melting o from defacto and 8 together?

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 SELECTED.

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.
