The overall experience has been more than amazing. If only for the Account Management service, it's simply superb. The Account Manager guides you through the contest and actually educates you on many key aspects of running a contest as well as of appreciating practical requirements of a logo. So, you really learn that you need a regular colored version as well as versions for light and dark backgrounds, and also the Black-and-White versions for newspaper advertisements, for examples. I can't really underscore all the support I've received. Let me just share that I have had a total of forty-plus email exchanges after the contest was launched; you may imagine the sincere efforts they provide to help you get the right design.
Product : Well, please remember, perhaps certain design tasks are more suitable for 1-to-1 projects. Anyway, there are a good number of talented designers. However, it might also be a good idea to plan for a longer time competition as well for going in the "blind" version where the submitted designs remain hidden from participating designers so that they feel more encouraged to bring in original ideas. Hope it helps. Thank you!
