Design brief

Organization name

MiniDig Hire

Description of business

MiniDig Hire offers mini excavators for short and long term hire to businesses and the general public.

Organization industry



I'd like the name "MiniDig Hire" to be the logo itself.

I'd like to see a sharp, bold, strong font.

I like the idea of a Black font with a silver outline with one other colour used as a feature somewhere.

Due to some site conditions I crnt use Red, Yellow or Blue as a colour.

Visually crisp and clean so it can easily be recognised.

No background.

I'd like to see some kind of feature, maybe do something with the four "i"s in the name, or try and incorporate something from a excavator, like a digging bucket into the name or even just a particular letter.

Further requirements

The logo/name will be printed on everything from business cards to machines and cars.

Winning design needs to supply logo files in a wide range of visual sizes, as i dont want the quality to get poor when its printed all over the car.

Ai, jpeg and eps files.

The logo needs to be supplied with both outline and no outline for printing purposes.
