Keterangan Peraduan

August 23 - New sample image added.
New graphic uploaded which shows three variations you can examine and then put your talent to work. :)
--------------------------
August 22 - Update!
I finally know what I want and I am grateful for all the submission I've gotten so far because each of them helped me to see the big picture.

To all new candidates who participate please note:

First: Check out my updated attachment "[url removed, login to view]

I want a logo which consists of these two words: Little Composers
I want the Co portion of "Composers" to be hand drawn shapes that represent mother and child which both must look to the right and not towards each other!
Or, alternatively, the LE (of Little) can be a shape followed by the text Composers.
Any variation based on my provided sample would be great.

I leave it up to you to chose a font which you think will complement your hand drawn shapes.
Drag and drop icons from some library or software will not do as there are already some great entries for which the artists have worked very hard for.

If you follow the above instructions, you should be able to win this contest because the best looking shapes with the best matching font WILL get the reward.



Original post is below:
A long time ago, I was messing around and came up with this graphic which shows the letters l and e (from Litt"le" Composers).
My website is about moms teaching their children about music and I want a logo which communicates that parent child theme.

Little Composers mission statement is: We turn moms into music teachers and children into famous Little Composers.

Can you come up with a great logo or improve on my design?

For extra inspiration, visit: [url removed, login to view]

Note: I don't have PhotoShop, am on a Mac and use Pixelmator only.
would love the logo as a transparent .png but if the design is right, then it doesn't matter as I can adjust the website to make it fit.

    Another round of aggressive elimination to help me focus on the ones I like.
    Please remember that nothing is written in stone.
    The icons (artwork) are much more important than the font and marsail has the best ones.
    asadhanif86 also has a very strong contender because the design works for small sizes (such as smartphones).
    tnovarria has a very good mom shape which looks great but isn't communicating the C and L as well as marsail's creation.
    mchamber has also come up with a duo mother/child design but it needs work.
    The left L could have a small curve at the bottom and lead up to the e (instead of the "elbow" look).
    I will be back later.
    Again, the rejections are just to help me see less and by no means mean that the work is not good. On the contrary. Almost all submissions were MUCH better than what I could have done.

    It's a little past 4 PM (pacific time) and I will be here for the next 6 hours.
    PLEASE don't mind me rejecting so many version updates and submissions.
    I only did this to clean up the view.

      I am a music teacher and giving feedback is 90% of my job.
      Actually, it's 70% the other is demonstrating and listening to excuses (which are related to why there was no time to practise ....)

    Today was a great day with MANY awesome submissions and updates.
    So far, marsail has produced the best shapes and introduced a new variation which works.

    There are two other entries with potential but that depends if the shapes can be adjusted to match the font choice.
    59, 60, 62, 63 are outstanding and 62 is the one to beat!

    I hope that sharing this information helps everyone to work on those last polishes and soon we will have a winner.
    I look forward to officially show the new Little Composers logo to the world!
    I am grateful to everyone who has submitted an entry and have learned a lot but most of all, I am glad that I chose freelencer.com to get this done. :-)

      Thank you for doing that!
      In leu of what others have submitted, I think that the new direction is the way to go and you came trough with another top contender.
      You, mchamber and tnovarria are in the lead and I don't expect much new activity except a few minor updates here and there. :)

      marsail,
      just hang in there and wait a little ... this way, you can see where it all goes and then make a decision "what kind of" update you want to work on/submit.
      This will save you a lot of time ... the contest is only half way trough.

    Also, I think it would be fair to share my thoughts with everyone as far as choosing a winner.
    marsail's team impressed me with the amount of quality updates. That logo is my top choice for "best original entry".

    tnovarria and mchamber are also #1 contestants because they have a chance to make improvements that make their work perfect (as in readable, beautiful shapes etc...)

    hashmizoon only submitted one entry (and might consider another one?) which was the first submission I've rewarded right away with 5 stars. The next update will determine a lot.

    There are a few more logos which are only one update away from 5 stars as well.

    At this point, I'd like to ask anyone who uses some logo design software with drag and drop shapes to obtain from entering because the winner will be someone who picks an easy to read font with beautifully drawn shapes as seen in some of the 5 star submissions.

    I hope this helps everyone to budget your time accordingly.

    To help me see the best work as well as submissions which great potential, I have used "reject" which gives me a chance to filter out everything except the active logos.
    Please know that every submission was carefully evaluated and commented on but at this point, there are a few strong contenders which I am focusing on.
    If anyone plans to submit something new, it would be best to look at my graphic sample (found in description) and the entries on this page.
    Each logo has something I like and one never knows when inspiration strikes.

    I hope that no one is disappointed about the rejections. They serve no other purpose than giving me a better look at the top entries.
    Thank you for submitting so many designs, the turnout is much better than I had expected. :-)

      Yes, I do love the new font, it's groovy .
      The previous one was very different but unfortunately hard to read (unless people already know what it is).
      Thank you for changing that. :)

    I have just updated the design description as well as a new sample logo which should give everyone a good starting point to work off of.
    Note: My sample is just that. A sample, nothing more and who ever improves on little-com-logos.png will win this contest. :)
    If anyone has an original idea which is not based on the above sample s/he is most welcome to submit.
    Nothing is written in stone! :)

      Well done!
      I've commented on the artwork and think that you delivered a great logo. If you want to, you could make the right half of the heart lower to complement the child's head but for now, just wait and see.
      I was thinking a lot about "how" to fix the frown and turn the word Composers into a smile and wonder if Composers should just move below the word Little?
      This would give you the needed room to reverse the curve and get that smile-look which is difficult to do if the word Composers is to the right.

    I have received some AMAING submissions so far and "liked" my favourite choices.
    Suggestion!
    I just saw that there is room to put the "mother-child" logos on the letters Co (from Composers) instead of the Le from Little).
    This would mean that all entries who haven't gotten the 5 stars have another chance to come up with a new variation.
    I just discovered this and leave it up to your visions. :)

    I see a lot of quality logos and if I can, I will shorten the contest.
    This has worked out better than I expected.

    It is Saturday morning in Vancouver and I will not be in for the rest of the day but will check in again around 6 or 8 PM Pacific Time.
    Thank you everyone for the amazing concepts. :)

    marsail,
    I am beginning to see the art (which I always do when I work on someones else's stuff, but not mine) and would like to suggest to frame the mother - child images in a tilted heart shape (outline of hair) where the left half (of the heart) is bigger then the right (in proportion of their head and hair sizes).
    I think this would be a great logo if you can also redefine the facial lines to make them more rounded, especially the child's nose.
    You got my creative juices flowing ... that's a good thing. :)

      MUCH BETTER! :) :)
      Is there a way to put a smile on the faces? (like a line that extends inwards as if the mouths were slightly open)
      Could you also try and turn the Little Composers letters into a smile?
      If you happen to have the text on a curve, simply reverse it to assemble smiling lips (hard to describe but I hope you know what I mean).
      Have fun with it. :)

      sorry, I am new at this (my feedback seems to have vanished?)
      All in all, it's a good logo but I wonder if you could mirror the child's head so that it faced the text and not the mother?
      On the screenshot, the logo is hard to read (in contrast, everything else is easy to read, even at the very small size).
      I kind of like the artwork I supplied better because it is more unique so if you want , you can redraw that instead and we'll see if that works?
      All in all, a vert good start. :)
