editor B got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create a classy, young, simple logo for Dissertation Reviews
Check out editor B's Logo design contest…
Dissertation Reviews (http://www.dissertationreviews.org) is an online web project and academic community featuring reviews of cutting-edge and unpublished PhD dissertations in more than 25 fields across the Humanities and Social Sciences (and that number is growing). Our goal is to offer readers a glimpse of each discipline’s immediate present by focusing on the window of time between dissertation defense and first book publication. Each review provides a summary of the author’s main arguments, the historiographic genealogy in which the author operates, and the main source bases for his or her research. The reviews are also anticipatory, making educated assessments of how the research will advance or challenge our understanding of major issues in the field when it is revised and published in the future. Dissertation Reviews also features reviews of and guides to archives, libraries, databases, museums, digital collections, and other collections where research is conducted, to help scholars improve their ability to undertake current and future research. UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE Some of the proposals thus far have gone a bit too far in the direction of what might be characterized as masculine, chunky designs appropriate for audio gear, motorcycles, aeronautical, and the like. What we are looking for is more modest, crisp, and avoiding to a great extent sharp edges/corners. We are looking for clarity and curvature, more letterpress/typographic (perhaps the aesthetics that Beats by Dre have pursued). IMPORTANT NOTE: please note that the sample graphic included with this contest is only for inspiration, not to be copied (we can do that ourselves). We are looking for something that we like much more than what we currently have thought of. Something we haven't imagined, but that still conveys the qualities described herein and in the larger contest details.
Logo types to explore
Dissertation Reviews is NOT your conventional academic project, so we want to avoid at all costs the image of pipe-smoking, jacket-wearing Freuds. We are a community of over 1000 early-career scholars, ranging from PhD students to Assistant Professors, and so we want to convey a contemporary sense of style. At the same time, we are ponderous people who take our work very serious. Hence, we also want to avoid logos/images that overemphasize the "fun" and "newness" of the project. The key will be to strike a balance.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
