Three days into the logo design competition and I’ve received some great submissions!
I’m starting to learn a little bit more about what I’m looking for in the design as well. Do you want to see some of the options?
This first design from Jemma at jemmyp.wordpress.com is beyond cute. The basic idea is that the bucket represents a helmet, symbolizing adventure, travel, and new experiences. It also reflects a sense of fun and personality – the idea of a child parading around with a bucket on his head pretending to be a knight. It’s about going out with your head held high and achieving what you want, whether that be traveling the world or simply having a good day at work. It’s about the adventure that everyone of us experiences – life.
I love the concept! It does connect to my direct and goals, but I’m not certain the child’s head sends the right message. I worry that readers will think that it has something to do with children’s writing. It’s one of my favorite submissions so I’m still considering it.
This next logo might be my favorite submission so far. It’s from Sas Ryan at https://sasieology.wordpress.com/. The check boxes represent ticking things off your bucket list, and the ‘Publications’ is designed to look like a passport visa stamp. If I was creative and could think of cool ideas, this would most likely be the direction I would go in. I was thinking about incorporating a check mark and the passport stamp is genius!
I might want the stamp to be slightly more obvious and I’m not sure that I love the purple color. I don’t know what color would work better though. Many passport stamps are red but red and blue is too “Superman”.
These are my personal favorites so far. I received dozens of great submissions but these ones most reflected my personalty and the direction of the site. Which one do you like more? Do you have a different idea? I’d love to view more submissions before making my final decision on Saturday. Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org If you have questions about more of what I’m looking for, head on over to the original logo design competition post and see if it has the answers.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
