urgency.dev got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Logo for Software/App Dev Agency
Check out urgency.dev's Logo design contest…
OUR TOP REQUIREMENT: Be memorable and different than other software development agencies. We DO NOT want to blend in. We'd love to have a graphic cool and different enough to print on tshirts without looking like people who just got free swag at a tech conference. Please see examples and read the reference notes and examples before this "What We Do" section. WHAT WE DO: We design and develop web and mobile apps for enterprise clients, as well as build and manage our own digital products and services. That's boring. THINGS WE'VE BUILT: * A life-expectancy calculator * Dozens of brand and corporate websites for a breakfast cereal company * An employee social network for a large healthcare company with 60k healthcare providers spread around the US * An information distribution platform and content management system for a multi-state health insurance company * An online cash-based wedding registry app * A rewards platform for bank employees * A new web technology stack for a major financial advisor company * An iPad app for helping people understand and purchase complex corporate health insurance policies * An online exam app for a publisher of science textbooks WHO WE ARE: * We are curious and engaged people who love learning. * We take our work seriously but try not to take ourselves too seriously (all the smartest people we know are also idiots in their own unique way). * We argue to improve our ideas but never just to win (well, maybe sometimes) * We’re not content with the status quo, but being discontented doesn’t mean we’re happy. We’re happiest when we’re working hard for a purpose… but that purpose doesn’t have to be a serious one. Having fun is a worthy endeavor. * We enjoy making fun of each other and take pride in our irreverence * We have a high threshold for what we consider embarrassing or awkward * We don’t mind dressing up for business meetings but we’d rather convey professionalism through our ideas * We’d prefer to be memorable and different than plain and unoffensive. OUR AUDIENCE AND CLIENTS * Generally our clients are large companies, but that doesn’t mean we need to play it safe. * We don’t need or want to appeal to everyone. (If our style and brand turns some people off, it probably means we weren’t going to be productive partners anyway.) * Just like you should “never trust a skinny chef”, we’re fine telling our clients “never trust a developer who has time to update their own website” * We’re never shy about telling a client we disagree with them — we hope that’s what they expect of us
Other color requirements
We like very judicious use of red, but too much makes "urgency" feel like "emergency". Also avoid blue so we don't look like an urgent care clinic.
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.
urgency.dev 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!
Fernando was great to work with. His creativity and skill improved our concept significantly, and he was inventive and helpful at introducing new ideas we hadn't thought of. He also responded to feedback quickly and precisely. We definitely hope to work with him again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
