Business name
ekarda
Description of business

ekarda is web based ecard sending software (SaaS). The user can login, select an ecard (christmas, birthday, seasonal, thanksgiving etc) and then send it out.

NOTE: We had an (ONE) unsuccessful design contest however that was NOT for a logo. For the ekarda logo contest - we have a higher budget and a simpler brief. We therefore believe that the job will definitely be awarded so please make sure you enter!

Notes

The ekarda brand is 'natural' (environmentally friendly), approachable, light, friendly, happy, beautiful, stylish, personal and simple.

We have had plenty of designs with 'e' on a leaf followed by 'karda'. I don't think we need any additional leaf designs unless they are absolutely exceptional.

I would like to see some different designs with a stylised icon to go along with 'ekarda'. The icon should represent environmental friendliness, ecards/email, SaaS and simplicity.

Please do not submit for this competition unless you are an experienced designer with a history of successful logo designs.

I am liking these colours however I am open to other suggestions: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/_…r_logo.png

      It's not about morality neither has nothing to do with you.
      Why always someone has to point out things that do not correlate with the facts here in order to prove their innocence? Huh? Kids do that, i tell you.So stop doing that, it proves nothing, really. ;)

      Back to our sheep, i can't do anything but congratulate you as a winner of the contest. You well deserve that nonetheless and as a side note mention the bad copyright infringement management from the 99designs part.
      Now get out and spend those money wisely! :)

      No offence!

      Stop you're playing moral authority ulahts. You are repeatedly sold same idea . For example

      http://99designs.com/logo-design/co…entries/61
      and
      http://99designs.com/stationery-des…entries/73
      http://99designs.com/logo-design/co…entries/95
      http://99designs.com/logo-design/co…entries/54
      and
      http://99designs.com/logo-design/co…entries/50

      So stop it to others to share the lessons.

      1. I will make sure not to enter anymore in your future contests.
      2 99designs guarantees the originality of the work submitted on their platform and their judgement is that if it's not an EXACT copy then there is no copyright infringement. In a law court things are different though, especially in this case. You are not covered by anything here enteract, tell your client about the infringement or anybody else will.

      10000000000000000% agreed with ulahts. if anyone can sell any logo then why we need copyrights and just change of color can't enhance the copyrights.

      And JS design bro.. its okay i can understand.. sometimes we think same as someone else already did, because we are designer and at some point we are all same. but copyrights are copyrights.

      Of course they told him they are fine.
      The client needs to be satisfied always..
      Believe me, if you sell that logo, than anyone here can sell it too.
      And i will sell it too.

      Firstly, that design i'll never see in my life. I swear. I do not need to copy other designs because I have enough of my ideas.
      Second, CH is specifically asked to re-set the design as it likes.
      CH is contacted 99design support and they told him that everything was fine.
