weissenborn.carol2 got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create a wistful black dog who will help find homes for real black dogs
Check out weissenborn.carol2's Logo design contest…
Animal & Pet
Site will be written in the voice of a wry, somewhat self-effacing dog (thus the "plain" in the title). The site will do two things: first, capture the dog narrator's musings, including whimsical verse in the manner of Ogden Nash. Secondly, I will be partnering with dog rescue organizations to promote and help find homes for actual black dogs (which tend to be passed over in shelters)--my dog narrator will craft "good home wanted" personals for these actual dogs. Intended to appeal both to dog/animal lovers and those with a sense of humor.
Other color requirements
Since the site is written by and on behalf of black dogs, my illustration will have to feature a black dog. I appreciate that this will limit design possibilities, but I'm hoping it will be possible to come up with more than just a black dog silhouette. I'm also open to creative uses of colors.
Since the site will be narrated by the dog, the illustration should convey a sense of personality. Drawing doesn't have to be literal--I love the purple cow logo. It is whimsical without being slapstick-y or cartoonish. I don't want a child's cartoon dog. Of the images attached, I love the soulful eyes of the dog in the photo. Not sure however that this could translate to a logo. I though of pairing a plaintive face with a crown or tiara, as in the Notorious RBG photo--playing up the "plain" black dog, a bedraggled princess. I was struck by the textures in the deer drawing, though that illustration lacks the sense of whimsy I'm hoping for. I also liked the mischievous minimalism in the one-line drawing--also the animal in a funny, unexpected posture. Tiaras, capes, necklaces, etc. all possibilities.

It all began with a design brief.

And then… they selected 2 winners!
Debbie was amazing to work with. She contacted me regularly throughout the design process and understood my vision from the first example she provided me and was quick with any changes I wanted. Will definitely use her again if we have more work to be done.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
