For this contest we require a logo and it must include our name "Harlequin". Subsequent contests will be held to design the website, banner ads and other marketing tools.
We want our logo to be stylish, fresh, contemporary, and upmarket. Modern yet classic.
Being a Casino hire company, we have strong links to Las Vegas. We adore Las Vegas and all it's bright lights and craziness. However, If you choose to design something around a Vegas theme, please be sure that it remains sophisticated and avoids looking tacky or garish.
We'd also like to see the image of a harlequin implemented in some of the designs perhaps, but this is by no means necessary.
To help you get started, here is a list of some words or themes we would like to convey with our brand. Perhaps you could focus on one in particular, or combine a few ideas to create the logo:
* Cool and elegant
* Stylish and luxurious
* Las Vegas (the cool, Ocean's Eleven side, not the tacky, feathers and slot machines side!)
* Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds
* Colours that suggest elegance, opulence and style.
* The image of a harlequin?
* The famous "Las Vegas" sign
* The Las Vegas Skyline.
* Anything that you consider to convey luxury and style.
HOWEVER if you have ideas of your own, please feel free to be creative. We love to be surprised and we'd love to see what you come up with on your own.
Please avoid bright, garish colours, balloons and fireworks! We are looking for a more modern, slick and contemporary brand image.
Thanks for taking the time to read our brief. We look forward to seeing what you come up with, and remember, be as creative or as minimalist as you like.
Best of luck to you all.
