Entry #332 - Logo design - by membleaje

Firstlight Broadcasting Network, FirstlightTV, FirstlightRADIO, FBN picked a winning design in their logo design contest

For just $295, they received 323 designs from 36 designers.

Great idea and a great website. Excellent that you have live chat available to assist with any problems or questions that may arise. We had a great number of designers - 36 who produced approx. 329 designs - to get this number of quality designs would have cost a fortune if we had gone to a series of design companies! So we all feel that we got fantastic value for money using 99designs. We had a very specific design brief and what we were looking for was a 'big ask,' but we got the perfect logo out of the process. Excellent. It was perfect for our needs too that we could "Poll" the designs with our Board Members and with all our supporters. We recommend that Contest Holders take the time to give good quality and frequent feedback to the designers as we found they were ALL willing to please us and to tweak their design concepts to better match our brief.

Design brief

Organization name

Firstlight Broadcasting Network, FirstlightTV, FirstlightRADIO, FBN

Description of business

We are a Christian Broadcasting Network in New Zealand run by a non-profit ministry. The network will show a variety of Christian programs including music, nature scenes and nature videos, sermons, health, children's programs and more. Including preaching the three angels' messages of Revelation and Jesus' second coming.

Organization industry

Community & Non-Profit


None specified

Further requirements

We need a logo to complement all four of the business names listed above but the design must emphasize 'Firstlight' rather than FBN which is the abbreviation of the company name.

The name ‘Firstlight’ was chosen because we are a Christian ministry (Jesus is the light of the world), based in New Zealand which is one of the first countries situated on the dateline, where the new day starts. We do not want any obvious graphics that depict Christianity such as a Bible, Jesus, Angels, Fish, Cross, etc. We want something more subtle, more focused on 'First' and/or 'light'. Perhaps something along the lines of the globe / south pacific incl. NZ / first light / rays of light / coming through the clouds, etc. Our logo and our programs will be age and culture friendly. Any symbols that are known to be pagan or to imply paganism are not to be included in our logo. Symbols such as halos, saints, an upside down cross, Baal hadat, the eye of Horus, pyramids, obelisks, yin and yang, peace symbols etc fall into this category.

Something in the design should point uniquely to New Zealand - this could be a New Zealand icon, or New Zealand's position on the globe etc.

Please note that Firstlight is spelt as one word and the 'l' is NOT capitalised.
