During the design process I received over 100 logos. Most of them came close to approximating my vision for the design but didn't quite capture it -- that is, until jmvdesign submitted her entry. The moment I looked at her logo, I knew that it was the one. Jmvdesign then worked with me for several days -- doing many revisions and testing different colors -- until we arrived at the perfect design.
This designer was great and really receptive towards constructive criticism, read the brief well and understood where i wanted to go with the refinements.
Would definitely use their services again.
Glam16 was such a pleasure to work with. She was accommodating and quick to return with new designs after comments were made throughout the contest. Her design proposals reflected her understanding of the brief and the comments made.

As you can see from the attached image, I would like to have an abstract image of a flame. Ideally, it would be similar but certainly not identical to the flame pictured above (I found this on another site). What I like about the attached image is that it is sketched. Given that I am working in the college space, I had the thought that it might be cool to have the image sketched as though it were written with a marker on a white board.
I also like the idea of having a slight shadow underneath the image to convey a sense of depth. As mentioned above, I like the idea of using a dark charcoal color and orange for the text. I am also open to any other ideas you might have on how to refine the design. One possibility that I have considered is to somehow highlight the "In" of "Inspired." One of the key goals of the business, after all, is to get students "in" to college. I've also explored the idea of using an admissions envelop or a light bulb rather than the flame for the picture. Finally, as mentioned above, I've considered making the whole logo look as though it were done in white board maker. I like the idea of this in theory but worry that it might not look sophisticated and refined enough for the ethos that I am trying to convey.
I'm open to any new ideas you might have and look forward to seeing what you come up with!
