Cmills84 got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Design a logo to sell Star Wars cards to enthusiasts
Check out Cmills84's Logo design contest…
Games & Recreational
Sells "Star Wars Customizable Card Game" (SWCCG) cards to players and collectors of the game.
I'm including a few images for reference: * The classic logo from the game this business sells cards from * A few of the most iconic cards in the game * A poster advertising the game that uses an interesting technique with the card shown as including an image that's part of a broader thing that's really happening (from Star Wars) * A battle between Vader and Ahsoka, which appears as a banner near the top of the site, below the logo + address bar [this is the one with vader vs. ahsoka with two lightsabers] * Card backs from the game (there are separate decks for the good guys and bad guys, which are represented by the two players fighting against one another) * A couple stylized lightsaber battles (probably still too complicated but may be good inspiration?) I am open to a range of designs. I would like it to convey: * Affiliation with Star Wars, since it's selling these cards * Some indication it's the card game, not Star Wars itself * Something that draws attention or inspires the guest I don't want to lead you too strongly as I really am open to a wide variety of designs. That said, I could imagine a few different types of designs working well: * A stylized card with the image of Luke or Vader showing a broader horizontal scene with the two of them fighting (like in the Expand the Empire poster shown where the card picks out part of a scene, though I was imagining this in landscape with a lightsaber duel and the card using most of the vertical space, but again I encourage creativity) * Something classic like a stylized lightsaber battle (horizontal) with something SWCCG indicated perhaps in text Please note this needs to go in a website's header where it is wider than it is tall! If you find something much better vertical I'll find a way to make it work, but my preference would be horizontal. This is for swccgcards.com, a site not yet released but in development. You can visit the site to see a mess that will eventually become the site. Note in particular that it is using a dark theme, so the logo will need to show up on a dark background rather than a traditional light background! This is relatively standard among Star Wars themed websites, so you may find other inspiration there. --- I am _not_ suggesting using these is required, but in case it's helpful here are the fonts used on the cards themselves: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15tTturkmAsXQZXbpU_kmml_RUBQyPkzu I'm planning on using the card name fonts for the card names on the page, so that may give you some feel for how to match the site that is currently under design.

While I hope to only pick one this time, the last time I held one of these contests I ended up picking 3 of the designs because I loved them so much. You all do great work. As part of this contest, I'll commit to... 1) ...always honor the originator of a bold new creative idea, and work out an improved version with them if possible before accepting any imitations and 2) ...provide detailed feedback on every design (or at least to every designer if there are many variations) who appears to have read the brief and made a serious attempt to fulfill the requirements

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 design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Cmills84 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!
Zensla was one of the early designers to take on the challenge, and was the first top contender. They were patient throughout the contest and made small adjustments that took the design over the top. They were great after the contest was over in addressing small concerns fairly quickly.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
