EchozAurora Logo Contest! Nov. 28th, 2010 @ 09:49 PM Reply

Link to blog post

In advance of setting up for a couple possible upcoming tours, I'm working on doing a complete revamp of my site, digital presence, etc.

Sooo... I'm in need of a new logo!

Being that I've been a part of NG for a good while, this site has helped me quite a bit over the years as I've worked on music, DJing, etc. So rather than hire some random tool to do graphic design, I'd much rather go to the creative community we have here and do it with a contest!

Prizes:

1st: $50 cash, as well as credit on the site and a permanent affiliate link. Also, top consideration for future commissioning for design projects. (Merch design, CD covers, etc)

2nd-5th: Will be featured on site, as well as considered for future commission work.

Criteria:

First off, I don't want just a knockoff of what I currently have. It obviously needs to say Echoz Aurora... but from there, be creative! I've included an old site background as a reference point, inclusion of the echo pattern or something would be cool... but even that isn't necessary.

I'm an electronic dance music DJ that spins multi-genre mashup. I also typically DJ in a top hat with a sound-active equalizer. I'm also a rave promoter. These are things to think about during the design, but yet again... I'm looking for new ideas, not old ones.

Format:

Logos need to be submitted in two formats.

One landscape standard page sized logo. (11 x 8.5")
One 940x198 pixel banner.

Artwork needs to be at minimum 300dpi quality

I personally recommend using the NG Dumping Grounds for uploading the files, but it's ultimately up to you how you put them online.

Other shit:

The deadline for contest submissions is two weeks from now:

Sunday, December 12th at 11:59 PM EST (NG time)

As far as judging goes, I'm going to go over the designs with a few friends and pick out the top ones I like. That's it. Because in the end, the one I like most is going to win.

The winner will be messaged for contact info to negotiate payment after selected, and 2nd-5th will be contacted for site links, etc. before the winners are posted on the site.

Anyway... good luck! I'm excited to see what people come up with! If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM on here and I'll try to get to them as soon as I can.

the circle is symbol for a hole where echo's are common, the lines on the circle make an aurora, and the icecream is a symbol of rave, and freshness.
the 2 colors look trippy next to eachother wich make's it a great colorway.

let me know if you want any changes!

I started with the banner but when I tried to put something together for the actually logo, I couldn't think up anything particularly interesting.

Here's the banner anyway. I know it doesn't even really qualify as a logo to begin with considering it doesn't really involve any elements besides your name, but hey, I tried. Consider it a 'just for the heck of it entry.'

And here's the high quality original file.

Would some of these actually work as Logo's btw? I mean, the one's with blur + gradients.. I've only seen a few logos with blur, and it would not look good in small print, even though it's vectorized.

I'd say a few of them wouldn't, but I don't want to discourage anyone. I've already seen a couple that I don't necessarily like for logos, but would work well for a t-shirt design or other promo stuff.

I agree with this

I as well!

(So yeh, btw. You won!)

I've been booked up with work and shit... so I've just not gotten around to posting up all the stuff.

1st: Flowers10 - Both entries were great, but the second is just a phenomenal looking logo! It took me like two days to realize it was a stylized E and A in a circle and not some weird character haha

2nd: Kuoke - My second favorite. It looked awesome overlaid into images, but just wasn't as great as Flowers' entry

3rd: Stupor - I really like how you integrated the equalizer and stylized the text, but it just wouldn't work out well as a logo.

Thanks to all that participated, Flowers10... I'll be shootin ya a PM shortly. =D

3rd: Stupor

Congrats Flowers!!! Great job on the logo.
Totally missed this thread entirely, would've tried something but just never saw it.
