    Looking for a new logo for my domain portfolio, Nametree. Current logo can be seen on Nametree.com - a new, cleaner website is in the works and I’m looking for a great new logo.

    I’m looking for something clean, elegant, modern, grounded. For the word mark, I’d like to see non-obvious options - not Helvetica or other similar “standard” elegant fonts. I’m open to integrating a tree into the actual word if you are able to do it in an elegant/smart-looking way.

    Font inspiration: Aqua Grotesque, Kollektif, or slimmer like Orkney. Open to experimental fonts like Stoked - I just want a solution that works with a brandmark and doesn’t feel like I’m slapping a stock tree icon next to a stock font.

    For the brand mark, I’d like to see creative interpretations of “tree” - no stock logos! - I’m pretty familiar with stock variants on Envato or icons on NounProject, so I’m looking for something original.

    Colors: greens, yellows, darker blues/blue-greens.
    The word mark may, but does not have to be, black.

    Deliverables:
    - png versions of the logo, and brandmark on its own (the latter should be in square format, usable for social media “headshot” images)
    - editable PSD or AI

    Submissions will be accepted until Wednesday, December 12, 5PM EST. I will nominate a winner by Friday, December 14, noon EST.

    Contest prize: $70, paid via PayPal.


    Thanks!

    Thanks for the submission, my feedback:
    - I don’t like the font - the width makes it feel bulky which isn’t very elegant, it also looks to techy for my liking.
    - What i meant by integrating a tree within the wordmark was more like Fedex has a white arrow between the E and the X, rather than a vertical symbol growing from the wordmark.
    - I do like what you did with the T to support the tree there, but it just doesn’t work as a whole
    - the tree feels pretty stock to me; I’m looking for something more abstract, perhaps.

    Hope that helps!

    Clean, simple and professional. Customized font. Inspired by the minimalist style of your examples. Colors are optional. Higher resolution when you click the image. Feedback is always appreciated. Thank you for the contest!

    Thanks for the submission - right off the bat I’ll say that’s too minimalistic for my taste. I feel like it lacks character, I’m looking for something a little more distinguished.

    The picture mark is important - I need a version of this that fits neatly within a square format, whether it’s just an abstract tree or some version of an N. I invite further submissions to take that into account.

    Thanks for your submission.

    I don’t love these, the symbol feels too “stock.” Very generic-feeling font too.

    I’d like to see something slimmer, the letters feel too wide. Thank you!

    I don’t like the brandmark, looks more like a bull’s head than a tree...

    This is the best one of the pack so far, definitely gets closer in terms of requirements, but I’d like to see some more options for the tree. My first thought was “oh, a snowflake!” - is I’m not sure that’s a great thing.

    Also, can I see the font in regular caps (Nametree as opposed to NAMETREE). Thanks!

    Favorite submission so far! I’d like to see a variant with the T a little more defined - I wonder if just a very short curved branch on the left too might do the trick. As it is, it almost reads like an F.

    The bottom of the symbol should be fully aligned with the font too. I prefer the slightly smaller version of the tree, it feels like the leaf on the right is resting on the “r” which is a nice touch.

    Finally, I’d like to see what this might look like in a few different font options.

    Thanks!
