30 Day Logo Challenge
www.thirtylogos.com have set an open challenge to designers to create a series of logos based on various design briefs daily for a month. I find this challenge interesting and fun setting goals in order to complete each design.
This is my take on the 30 days logo challenge.
DAY #1 – SPACE
Space is building coworking offices so that freelancers and small startup companies have a stunning office to work out of without paying the big bucks to buy or lease a large building.
We offer rentable offices for teams of 1 to 12 in beautiful areas across the world including Austin, New York City, Raleigh, Chicago, San Francisco, and London. These offices are also great for people working remote for larger companies.
DAY #2 – THE GRIND
The Grind prides itself on natural and local ingredients. For our new logo, we actually do not want to use any browns! So many coffee shops around here use brown and we’d like to stand out. Maybe oranges, green, other earth tones, etc. could work well.
This logo will primarily be used as our store sign, on menus, and on coffee cups and merchandise. The Grind logo could be text based or have an icon, we’re open to either/both. We’re open to using symbols that represent coffee such as the coffee bean, plant, grounds, coffee cup, etc!
DAY #3 – TWITCHY RABBIT
Twitchy Rabbit has a problem with the current logo which is too detailed and doesn’t work great as our logo, especially at small sizes, and this is something we want to improve on.
Twitchy Rabbit is an email marketing platform similar to MailChimp and Twitchy the Rabbit is our mascot. We’d like him to be redesigned into a more simple, iconic form that we can use across our products.
We are willing to accept a solid color logo or something with multiple colors, as long as it works great a small size around 50x50 pixels for icons.
DAY #4 – PING
Ping is a growing chat platform for businesses and small teams. Some of our biggest competitors are Slack and Skype. What sets us apart is that we offer major features like group screen sharing, free of charge.
Our logo needs be text-based, focused on the word Ping. Feel free to explore icons that are aligned with the name but the name needs to be included.
We are open to any color scheme but would like to stay away from blues if possible. We’re also open to any kind of typographic style and graphical style.
DAY #5 – WILDLIFE
Wildlife is a non-profit organization that preserves the life and habitat of wild animals throughout the world. Our organization is known for our passion and personal investment in the lives of animals.
Similar to the the WWF logo, we would be happy to use one animal to represent our brand or several, it’s up to you. We do require a stand-alone icon for the logo that can be paired with text, although text is not required for this stage.
Outside of an animal icon logo, we do not have any requirements at this time.
DAY #6 – 1-800 ROSEBUD
1-800-Rosebud is an online flower shop which sells bouquets of flowers and gifts for any special occasion! We’re looking for a logo that represents a flower or flowers along with our name, 1-800-Rosebud.
DAY #7 – Austin Run
We’re a large running event that happens once a year in Austin, Texas. We had over 5,000 participants last year and now it’s time to get some great branding materials.
Austin Run is a charitable event for autism research and raises money for families in need of care, education, and information. The event is so much fun and many people dress up in crazy outfits. Last year we had someone dressed as Darth Vader followed by 50 Storm Troopers!
It could feature the Texas state shape, a landmark that represents Austin, something that represents running, or even just a text logo!
DAY #8 – SPARKED
Sparked is a video game news website featuring the latest news in all video games, esports, and tech.
For our logo, we’re looking for something that works on a dark background. This logo cannot have a light or white background. We’re possibly thinking of something that uses orange, red, or yellow and features a spark, fire, flame, etc.
The Sparked brand is all about hot gaming news, so we want our logo to represent that. Feel free to check out a few examples attached for inspiration.
DAY #9 – PAINT
Paint™ is a fantastic mobile app that allows you to take a photo of anything and it will automatically pull up the correct color in multiple formats including Sherwin Williams Paint, PANTONE Color, and many more.
We’re looking for a redesigned logo that is visually appealing. I’ve attached our current logo below but we think it’s too bland. It really lacks some color which is what our app is all about.
DAY #10 – ANCHOR
Anchor is a clothing line for the nautical lovers! Many of our products are actually produced with recycled boat sail material.
We’re looking for a fairly simple logo that of course features the iconic shape of an anchor. While blue is obvious for color, we’d like to try something outside of blue. We want to be more modern and fun and don’t want to use something so expected!
DAY #11 – SWEETS
A new candy shop is opening in the UK called Sweets. We’ll offer a very wide variety of candy; just about anything you can imagine. I would love for the logo to capture the joys of candy whether it be with an icon, colors, etc. I would please ask that the words “Candy Shop” are below the main name “Sweets”.
DAY #12 – SWORD & SHIELD
Sword & Shield is an upcoming security system for tech companies. Our software includes password protection, server backups, malware protection, and more. We’re focused on appealing to medium to large scale technology companies.
For our logo, we’d of course love to feature a sword and shield! Our team has discussed some ideas but we’d love to see what you come up with first. We ask that the logo be provided in both a dark background and light background style.
DAY #13 – JJ PIZZA
We are so excited that you’re taking on our rebrand! JJ Pizza has been serving the Chicago area with the very best pizza since 2002. We’re rated #1 for the area and now it’s time to step up our game!
We want the exact red colour as our current. Reason for this is because a lot of this red is painted on our walls, our cups, etc. and if we can keep that red, we can save some money.
The red color required is this hex code: #DF4337
