Design brief

Brief Summary

I'm a startup entrepreneur, angel investor and author of -- a top-ranking blog about startups with over 10,000 subscribers.

I'm looking for a kick-butt logo that stands out, but is clean and professional. I'm selective. If you win, you not only get the cash, but I'll post a blog article about it giving you visibility.

Brand Name


I want to create a cool, distinctive and professional logo that can be used on the website, social media sites and elsewhere (print, t-shirts, etc.).


  • A distinctive and professional logo
  • Convey the concept of startups, entrepreneurship (the theme of OnStartups)
  • Simple, clean design
  • Should look great in a single color)
  • What I like are logos for top brands (Apple, Nike, Pepsi, etc.)
  • Final deliverables should include original vector file and JPG files for immediate use.
  • Avatar should be appropriate size for use on Twitter and other social media sites.
Don't Wants
  • A complicated logo that uses lots of detail
  • A logo that needs lots of colors to work
  • Something that is overly cliched (have that now with my current logo)
