Hi all, I'm running a contest for a re-design of my logo for an offline business "Conrad and Black". This logo is mainly for use on my new business cards but will likely be used on other printing and on my website (if I ever build one), etc. I have included copies of the old logo below. However please do not include the tagline 'IT Services' as I no longer do that - now I focus on IT Procurement, though there is no need to include that as a tagline. Sorry, the prize for this contest is only $20. I am outside the US and the exchange rate is currently terrible, not to mention the fact that I might not love any of the resulting designs and might stick with the original logo. I have been using it for over 15 years and am a bit attached now! I am old-fashioned and it is hard for me even to consider changing it! I envisage that the new logo will be fairly minimalist - modern, but not futuristic. Must be easy to read the name. I generally prefer the word 'and' rather than the use of '&' in the logo though I am open to both options. A rectangular My business is all about quality of service and quality products so the logo should reflect this. I am toying with the idea of silver or white on a black or dark-grey background. That's just a thought though... Actually, if I understand correctly the logo just needs to have a transparent background and then it can be put on whatever colour we choose later - but I would be interested to see something on a dark background. * End time is exactly 9 days after the date of this first post. * You will need to provide a PNG/JPG or similar that I can use on the web as well as any source files that I will need for the business card. * Whatever I choose for the final logo I will also want a version done in the reverse colours or at least in mono as I sometimes need this (refer to my examples below) - but this option does not need to be provided in your entry, it just needs to be provided later by the winner. * If I DO decide to use the winning design I will pay an extra $5 for a square version as occasionally I have needed this. Again, this can just be an adaptation of the approved design and does not need to be provided in your entry, it just needs to be provided later by the winner. Please let me know if you have any questions. I will try to give feedback on all submissions. I will be frank as it's better than sugar-coating things! Please don't take offence if I don't like your design - I do appreciate the time and effort that goes into these designs - thank you in advance!
