sudoforge got their new logo & business card by running a design contest:
Create an identity for a technology consultant
Check out sudoforge's Logo & business card contest…
My target audience are small and medium enterprises - business owners. I build lasting relationships with my clients, and am usually their sole source of technical services. I provide web development, system and infrastructure management, networking and IT services, and perform general business consulting. My target audience likes modern, sleek user interfaces, primarily conducting their business using various online tools. They value business integrity, reliability, and expertise. They need a vendor who understands their business, who they trust, and who they can rely on to get the job done without having to become involved in the details.
I want a strong icon that can stand on its own - think about businesses which you know and recognize simply from their icon. That's what I'm aiming for. Meaning behind the words in the business name: - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudo - https://www.thefreedictionary.com/forge If this is unclear, please feel free to leave a comment. I have uploaded my current working logo created after a short brainstorming session using an online design tool. UPDATE 2: A lot of submissions seem to be attempting the same thing - slightly revising the example logo I've uploaded. I _do not like_ that as a logo, which is why I'm hosting this contest. Please feel free to use your creativity and deviate from the example logo. UPDATE 1: I will add links to other entries in other contests that I enjoy. I am finding these via the "Discover Inspiration" link from the 99designs homepage. They are listed in the order I find them, not by priority or preference. https://99designs.com/profiles/ludibes/designs/1180916 I like the simple logo, and the fact that it forms both the letter "F" and the silhouette of a foundry. https://99designs.com/profiles/ultrastjarna/designs/5062 The typography here is pretty neat, and blending the 6 and the S together is a clever way to display the company name in a unique manner. https://99designs.com/profiles/ludibes/designs/1188338 I like the flat, portable design. This flows very nicely with the text, and stands strong on its own. https://99designs.com/profiles/maurizioligivainstein/designs/1193971 Again, the logo here is unique, simple, and strong on its own, and aside text without overpowering it.
