UPDATE: I will be creating the poll with the top 9 submissions on Saturday 27 February! BEFORE that point, please verify with me that your logo is original. If you were "inspired" by another logo, please submit the link to that logo so that I can see how they are different. Again, the logo is for a publishing company and copyright is very serious to me. Thanks!
This is my first contest, so if you need more information, please ask (I am learning here, too)!
I have founded a small indie publishing company. The name is Toro Books. The target audience are young working professionals/Hipsters. We will sell primarily language course books (for learning English, German, French etc.) but not only. There will also be some other educational books and possibly some novels.
Also keep in mind that I want to use this for letterhead, websites etc. and very small details won't work as well. And just because it has hipster elements doesn't automatically make it the perfect logo. At the end of the day, I have to choose one of hundreds of entries and I am open to logos that are not strictly "hipster", but might be attractive to our hipster customers (I hope that makes sense).
I should stress: we are NOT a public bookshop where customers will see a street sign and come in to buy books. The company is a PUBLISHING company. So logos and mock-ups of signs are not necessary.
UPDATE ON SPECIFICATIONS
No "angry" bulls
No logos that look like steak restaurants, university mascots, sports teams, the devil, zodiac signs, Vikings etc.
No books in the traditional sense (there are some creative examples here)
No small details (we need to be able to have a version for letterhead and small details get lost)
No red color (too predictable)
No entries that are only black and white (if you create a color version AND a black and white version, that is OK)
No stolen logos! I will be checking
No entries with backgrounds other than white
No: angry, aggressive, classic entries
Logos on white background
a bull or horns are OK
Hipster style (ATTENTION this could be hipster colors or design elements but is not an absolute must)
Color is OK in the logo or words (but not RED)
Also feel free to play with the letter "T" in Toro to make it look like a bull or horns? Not a must.
Adjectives to describe our logo: happy, hipster, cool, cute (maybe)
Be creative! Think outside the box. A bull with hair? sunglasses? interesting angles? Sure, try it out!
PS: I have to say, there are some really good entries! Just to limit them, I have started rejecting many (trying to keep it under the top 20). Also, I would like to remind everyone to use ORIGINAL work (no copying of other logos or images). In publishing, copyright is very important! I have been checking all the logos and have found several to be copies. Rest assured, I will be reporting every copy to freelancer.com AND the company/designer the original belongs to.
Rating/Decision: I am now going to start RATING with stars. If I rate another designer's logo high, please do NOT just send me 20 more versions of it! BE CREATIVE. After week 3, I will create a survey of my top 9 and get some feedback from my customers before I ultimately decide at the end of week 4.
Here is what my personal ratings mean (my opinion)
1 star = interesting but needs some fundamental design change (font, color, design, image etc.)
2 stars = more interesting. Still needs big changes though.
3 stars= quite interesting. Still needs some modifications though.
4 stars= very interesting. Might need some small modifications. A logo with 4 stars will definitely make it into the top 9 for the survey that goes to clients.
5 stars= perfect. Only the winning logo will receive 5 stars from me.
