Brand a Professional Speaker! Tech + Innovation + Communication = AWESOME
Check out julie.holmes's Logo & brand guide contest…
with Julie Holmes
I am a professional speaker in the areas of Technology and Innovation. My main message (kind of a tagline but more of a promise statement) is Tech and Innovation to Sell More, Serve Better and Save Time. My two primary programs are: 1. TECH TO CONNECT (focused on how technology helps us build and maintain great relationships at scale). There will be variations of this as well such as: Tech to Connect for Sales; Tech to Connect for Leaders; etc. 2. THINK LIKE AN INVENTOR (focused on how to find/solve problems in creative and systematic ways). My buyers are corporations and associations that are putting on conferences. My logo will be used in marketing material as well as handouts, workbooks, etc. While my NAME is my brand and I want to use the logo with program name, I will also want the logo to be good as a standalone icon, too. Generally speaking, my avatar is: 1. 35-50 years old 2. In the United States 3. Has a bachelor's degree and some industry certifications 4. They are looking for speakers that are INTERESTING, ENGAGING, UNIQUE, VALUABLE - when they pick great speakers, it draws an audience. 5. They also want to TRUST the speaker. Because I speak on technology and innovation, branding should be FRESH, CLEAN, MODERN and ideally be colorful (as I am a fairly enthusiastic speaker). I have provided some colors that I am currently using (mostly as a gradient) but I am not tied to those colors at all.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo & brand guide.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
julie.holmes collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
