Design a Logo

Contest Brief

UPDATE 04/06/2014

"Hi all,

Thanks for all the designs.

Still not found 'the one' yet! I want to share a few bullet points which might help. Would love to see some more concepts..

- Light/Modern/Sleek Font
- Business (grey) or (blue)
- Pond (grey) or (blue)

Icon
- The icon should be on the left of the logo as this is what sits on the website best:
[login to view URL]

The name 'Business Pond' is to represent a 'Pond/Lake' of business people.
Note: I do not like over use of colours. Like to much of one colour. I like subtle and modern.

Keep in mind that Business Pond is a new, modern advertisement website. It is a 'techy' company and I want to represent a quality and modern image with the branding. Design sleek and clean!

I look forward to see your designs.

P.s. do not feel that you have to design a icon around a pond object it can be anything that you think will work well. Be imaginative!"

Hi All,

Over the past two years I have been building an online advertisement platform around the business buying and selling niche.

Name: Business Pond

The website has 4 users:

- Business Buyers
Can browse businesses for sale using simple search and contact facilities. (Free user)

- Business Sellers
Can create advert to promote their business for sale and find buyers.

- Business Brokers
Can create multiple adverts to promote their clients businesses for sale + broker profile

- Business Franchisees
Can create advert to promote their franchise opportunity.

Please see website development link here - [login to view URL]

Note: Website is not complete.

Details:

I am pretty open minded to designs however I want it to be SMART, MODERN & CLEAN. I have attached to this competition some reference logos which I don't mind the look of. However do not feel that you have to work around one of these they are just for inspiration. I also welcome any slogans if you want to add them to a design.

I would like to also mention that this winning designer has the opportunity of future freelance work for Business Pond & other projects.

Feel free to be as imaginative as you like with design...

I very much look forward to seeing your designs and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
John

p.s please take 5-10 minutes browsing through the website to get a feeling of it. I welcome ANY feedback on the website that you have. [login to view URL]

    I have just added two new files for inspiration to the Project Brief.

    One file is called 'Poll-pond-logo.jpg' and the other one is 'Logo_All_Pond_Solutions.jpg.' They are just for inspiration. I don't mean copy them.

    I like the idea of having a leaf/flower or some sort of icon having something broken off as if it has 'moved on' 'separated' from the rest. It would represent a transition happening. Or a 'change/sale'

    - Subtle font and minimalistic

    Hi all, none of the designer are jumping out at us right now.

    Thank you for your designs so far. Here are things to consider:

    - We don't like black font
    - We do like clean and simple designs
    - Business Pond is a modern advertising website which is unique for its simplicity and ease of use.
    - For inspiration use new, modern tech/website/marketing/advertising websites. Which have really good design.
    - Be different. We are open to any ideas that you have so feel free to try anything you want

    Thanks again!

    Hi All,

    I appreciate all the designs which have been coming through. I have been sending low feedback this is only because the designs coming are not what I am looking for, they are kind of similar to the one on the website at the moment.

    I do want to thank you for the work which is being putting in though.

    Perhaps trying to think out the box a little more. Remember we want Smart, Modern & Clean... We are an up and coming corporate advertisement marketplace which is taking a modern approach to this particular industry and wants to stand out by having a clean design and simple website.

    Thanks again.
