Samira-NL got their new logo & brand guide by running a design contest:
Logo and brand identity for new website about exploring nature
Check out Samira-NL's Logo & brand guide contest…
= About the company = Hartje Buiten will start as a blog (soon I start with vlogs too) to inspire people to get out the house more and go into nature. To get more energy and to feel more happy. I will go out myself and share my experiences, locations to visit for a hike or workshops/events to attend. All with a link to nature. Most in the nature, some connected to nature. None of the workshops/activities will be heavily active. Think of things like bird spotting (with guidance), foraging, stargazing, guides with forest rangers etc. Things people forget to do, have a dull image or people even weren't aware it exists. = Audience = The target group are mostly woman from 25 to 45 years old who are tired, have a risk to get a burn out, don't have energy to sport and will go out after getting inspiration. Ideally they are interested in sustainability and healthy food. = About the name = Hartje Buiten is Dutch. Hart means heart. But it also means center. Buiten means outside. It is a varation of a Dutch expression 'hartje natuur'. We say that in the Netherlands when we are in the middle of a forest for example. = Do's and don'ts for the logo = Please don't use symbols like: - mountains (we don't have them in the Netherlands) - waterfalls (no mountains, no waterfalls :) ) - campfires (its about activities during the day) - bears (we don't have them here) - or tents (it gives a wrong impression of camping) - houses (it feels like accomadations) - pines, that's less common in the Netherlands. Trees with round leaves would be better - No reptiles If you want to use animals, think of: - deers (small ones, no reindeers. We associate that with Christmas) - rabbits - squarrels - birds But please don't use symbols on it's own. No leaf or bird alone. People won't understand what Hartje Buiten stands for. I want a combination of 2 or more symbols, for example creatively combined. To give you some inspiration (don't copy): like the brain/leaves logo below. I don't want a very feminine logo and I don't want a big heart in the logo. A small, subtle heart is ok. I want a logo that stands out of other brands in this area. I like modern maybe even an edgy logo, preferably mostly black. But of course it should fit the concept. So if you have a better idea, enlighten me :) = What the logo should represent = If you think of hiking in the middle of nature and seeing beautiful sunlight, maybe an animal passing by or a perfectly looking toad, a field with wild flowers... And you noticed you become more relaxed, problems fade away and you feel more happy and relaxed. How can you translate this feeling in a logo?
In the near future I want to create merchandise. I want the logo to become a reminder for people to go out and relax. I will buy only sustainable products and probably products with materials like wood. Maybe that's good to know when you are design. Maybe not, I don't know :)
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo & brand guide starts at $429.

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.
Samira-NL 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!
Designer was great to work with! Happy to make a number of adjustments to the logo to get it just right. Created an elegant design that ticked all the boxes for me.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
