We need to replicate current logo (as is) in an editable layered file. One copy as-is with diamond shell icon as is (2-D). One copy with the diamond shell icon with 3 dimensional look. Since we have other contests to run that will incorporate elements from this file, we need to complete this contest this week.
There is a .jpg version of the logo.
We need original artwork re-created so that can be used for both web graphics (vector) and print (high resolution). The icon within the logo will be copied and used in other graphics and animations (flash).
1. The logo should be recreated exactly as it looks, full color, in a fully editable layered file.
2. We need a second copy of the logo with the diamond shell icon in a 3-D look (instead of the current 2-D / flat).
Initial feedback will be provided by 17th - we want a winner. We will review final submissions and decision on 19th.
Adobe Illustrator CS3 file saved in several formats:
- Fully layered file with the ability edit any element of the logo, background, text, diamond shell icon and their individual elements (as they will be animated in an upcoming flash). One logo file for the 2-D icon, and one logo with the 3-D icon. Export to editable Photoshop file.- The diamond shell icons (2-D and 3-D versions) will be used in other graphics, such as watermarks, insertion into other Illustrator or Photoshop graphics, animated in flash, etc. For ease of use, please save a file with only the icon, one file for the 2-D icon and one file for the 3-D iconAdded 2/15 for further clarification – On the 3-D part, we are looking for a frontal 3-D perspective tilted toward the viewer that looks like a diamond. The center line pulls out towards the user, lowering, and a top is put on it. The shell elements morphs to a diamond, with the dimensions being created from the spokes of the shell, same colors foreground and highlight as the shell in the logo. You may have to change the number of spokes to get the diamond, and that’s ok. The best example of the perspective that I can find is shutterstock #619850 top diamond. (I do not want a rip-off of their design, just referencing for perspective.)
Since we received entries with perspectives we didn't expect (its our first contest), we wanted to refine the description so that everyone had a fair chance to win. And, we're adjusting the contest, slightly. We'll pay a secondary winner $25 for the alternate 3-D perspective such as entry #2.
- logo redesign - new colors, different fonts for text, different 2-D diamond shell icon in logo (Only "redesign" is making the 3-D version)
