We are looking to design the logo for our entire brand. We are an online provider of collection tools, for small business that have past due accounts.
The purpose of this contest is to create a logo that people will easily recognize and remember. We want our logo to convey that we are a well established and professional software company, who is a leader in our field. The logo will be used for business cards, brochures, letterheads, and most important our website.
I will be running another contest for web page design as soon as the logo contest is finished and a winner has been selected. The web page design will be based around the winning logo from this contest.
The logo should be easy to remember, and should have a theme that expresses Innovation, Technology, Software, Commitment, Customer Service. We do not want the “old” institutional/traditional stuff, we want something that says we are the new breed of technology solutions.
We are moving to a Web 2.0 type platform soon, so please read the brief before submitting your entry. I am looking forward to your designs, and good luck to everyone.
