Notes

I am trying to capture the magic, passion and rythym of South Beach at night in this logo. I think the pictures I uploaded convey those feelings. If possible, I would like to see a logo which includes palm trees and perhaps a drawing of a skyline of art decco buildings (at night) as seen from a distance. Or maybe a street scene from Ocean Drive (the main street that runs in front of the Art Decco Buildings) with the buildings behind it. Or maybe something that includes, art decco buildings, palm trees and beach and ocean. This logo is directed primarily to persons of all nationalities, ethnicities, backgrounds, economic conditions between the age of 18-40, but should be able to attract people of all ages and convey an attitude of chic, cool, fashion and party. South Beach is located on Miami Beach, FL and is known as the US French Riveria and is home to movie stars as well as many other celeberties and is one of the most popular tourist destinations and party places in the nation. If you have been there, you know what I mean, if not, you might want to check out the Wil Smith video "Welcome to Miami" on You Tube to get a feel for the place. I plan to eventually use this logo on my web site, phone app, stationary and business cards. If you need to discuss this project please call me anytime at 305-431-8407, or email at chuckone2001@yahoo.com. If you don't think my idea will work, of if you have a better idea, lets see it! Good luck!

I look forward to working with you.

Chuck

      Hey Guys:

      Since this contest was supposed to end late today, we need a little more time to gather partners together and agree on a design. Hopefully, we will have an answer sometime this weekend. Thanks again for your patience and all of your hard work, we appreciate it. Chuck

      Just wanted to thank all of you who took the time and made the effort to participate in this project. There were many awesome designs submitted. Unfortunately, I can only bring six designers to the final round. Congratulations to those of you who made it to the finals. So far, I am most impressed with design #24, it incorporates everything I am looking for into a very professional design. Good luck!

      sorry but I couldn't help but notice the blatant copy (except slight colour change) of Grand Theft Auto Vice City Illustration on logos #69, #70, #71 and #72, http://mikiedaniel.files.wordpress.…e-city.jpg

      Hey Guys, I am seeing some really good designs. Thanks for your participation. This is my first time, so please be patient with me. From what has been submitted thus far, an image in my mind is starting to emerge of a row of art decco buildings at night with either a red or black sky (moon and stars included)and several palm trees (a must). If possible, I don't know if practical due to size restrictions, a street (The famous Ocean Drive or Decco Drive) in front of buildings and the beach and water (please see design # 5). This logo will be used for letterhead, business cards, website and will eventually need to be modified for an app. So I don't know if it is possible to fit everything I want into this logo and not have it be too cumbersome. I will leave that up to you guys-you are the experts. The buildings are all art decco that are lit up and night with neon lights (please see the pictures I submitted with application). I wonder if it would be possible to put the SOBE BUZZ name in neon on the marque of one of the buildings (please see the Colony Hotel in the pictures I submitted). If possible, have SOBE running vertically and Buzz running horizontally. Maybe I am asking for too much clutter, mabe a simpler design would be better. I'll leave it up to you Guys to figure it out. Thanks again for your participation.
