Voici comment Herb Caudill a commencé son expérience création de logo

Nom de l'entreprise



DevResults is a management tool for international development agencies, humanitarian assistance organizations, charitable foundations, and others that work to improve the quality of life in developing countries. Examples: USAID, World Bank, CARE, Oxfam, Gates Foundation, Red Cross, UNDP.

These organizations are moving away from large, expensive projects, instead preferring to fund many small initiatives. For example, rather than hiring one contractor to build many water systems, a donor might use the same money to create a fund that will generate hundreds of small grants to community associations to build water systems for themselves.

While this is more effective, it’s more complex to manage.

DevResults is a suite of simple web-based management tools that makes it easy for international development projects to track budgets, calendars, and performance indicators for any number of activities. Task lists help teams stay on the same page and track approvals. Document and photo libraries provide centralized storage for important files. Interactive maps show where projects are working. Readable graphs and charts allow managers both in the field and in donor countries to monitor and evaluate the results of projects in real time.

The software will be offered as a web-based service at monthly rates, like BaseCamp, or

International development professionals. The following fictional personas are representative:

He lives with his girlfriend of 5 years and brews beer as a hobby. He speaks French and Yoruba, and has recently returned from a two-year term as Chief of Party for HAI in Kinshasa, Congo.

She speaks English, Spanish, and Portuguese fluently. She is a civil engineer and has worked for USAID most of her professional life. She is managing a rural potable water project that is funding 500 new water systems in small towns and villages throughout the country.



I'd like to focus this contest on the logo itself - the symbol, as opposed to the word mark. Once we have a good brand, we can work on the type treatment separately. So to simplify things for everyone, in all subsequent submissions, please:

- Use Officina Serif or a similar slab serif font.
- Use all lower case (devresults) with "dev" and "results" in different colors from the palette.
- Leave off the tagline ("Project Management for Effective Development").

I hope that by taking the type treatment out of contention you'll be able to focus your efforts on coming up with a symbol that represents this product's capabilities in a powerful way.


A simple, strong logo, plus the word DevResults. (Alternative capitalization OK, e.g. devRESULTS or devResults).
