The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  davestoad

Company Name: BLCK. TOAD

Company Slogan:  ball chn jwlry (I am keeping the vowels out of BLCK., chain and jewelry and abbreviating)

Description and What We Do: BLCK. TOAD ball chn. jwlry. is a jewelry business that uses ball chain instead of regular chain. We use bright colored ball chain and connectors and black and white ball chain and connector. Our chain colors represent things like LGTB pride (rainbow), Canadian pride (red and white), cannabis and recycling/environmental support (greens). We also sell solid black, white, and 4 different camo inspired colors. I do not want this to become a cannabis or gay pride jewelry line, this is a rounded life style brand. We represent all through fashion and design, I want to appeal to the mass market.

Industry Type: Cosmetics and Jewelry

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1  Our jewelry is lower priced (under$15)

#2 We are a little bit different

#3 We celebrate life!

Our Target Audience:

Our first line will be designed for the cannabis dispensary market. Male and female, average income, food and pet lovers. The whole idea is to celebrate cannabis but mix it with life style and other interests. For example, someone might want a red and white ball chain(Canadian pride) with a cannabis leaf charm and a cat charm all in one necklace.

We Like These Colors:

I would like to see a genderless black toad wearing a necklace, anklet and bracelet. It is very important that the jewelry on the toad stand out. I have included pictures of the ball chain. Please try to come close in proportion. If you could design the connectors as close to lifelike as possible. The connectors are as important as the ball chain. I will be using connectors as an upsell item. In the pictures you will notice some connectors are showing different sides, some are solid and some you can see the openings. Please show a range of sides in the necklace, bracelet and anklet on the black toad. Toad necklace - - silver ball chain with small amounts of red and white ball chain and connectors used to make a design throughout the chain. I have included a pic of what charms I would like on the necklace of the toad and an example of red, white and silver ball chain. I will tell what the charms are: cannabis leaf, BALL, designer flip flop, chn, rubber duckie, jwlry, lama. Toad anklet - pic attached B.TOAD please change chain, do not use black chain like pic but a silver chain with grass green connectors and ball chain mixed in like the red and white ball chain. Please add I extra letter charm in between the B and the T that is a period to show the B is an abbreviation. Toad bracelet - a silver chain mixed with deep pink, lavender and blue (please place in that order) connectors and ball chain.

I like the energy of the toad. The words ball chn. jwlry have to be in the logo. The pendant around the neck is to big, I do not sell pendants that big. I need the chains for the necklace, bracelet and anklet to be the colors and design that I mentioned in my contest entry. You can barely tell what kind of pendants the toad is wearing, I need them to stand out, I sell alot of pendants.

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.
