branch.andrew got their new logo design by running a design contest:
New logo wanted for Prime Directive
Check out branch.andrew's Logo design contest…
Prime Directive is software shop which focuses on building wildly creative and beautiful, functional software that we love so much we'll not only sell it, we'll use it ourselves. Our focus is on mobile and web.
Logo types to explore
The logo should do three things: 1: it should tell our story. The Prime Directive is a term borrowed from Star Trek. Read up on it here: http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Prime_Directive The reason we love it is because we are developers who feel that creative software should occur naturally without interference or too much top down dictation by executives and stake holders. We want an environment where smart/creative folks are given the freedom and environment where they can create amazing solutions to common problems in beautiful ways. Thus the logo can be unexpected or even rebellious. Unwieldy maybe. But at some level it should speak to our culture of utmost priority on non-interference with natural creativity. 2: it should reflect technology. Although I used the word "natural" in the previous requirement I do not mean nature. Avoid plant and nature reference. If you want to experiment with organic, try for cyborg, or like rise of the machine type archetypes. 3: Because we are extremely creative we want the logo to be as well. It doesn't need to sceam, but it can be deviant. If you had fun creating the logo the chances are we will pick up on it and like it more. Some other thoughts. The P or the word prime are more interesting to us than D or directive. Feel free to experiment with P and D together, but we're more excited about the Prime part for a mark or identity. But we certainly could be swayed if you don't agree. The symbol for prime as a math principal is sorta like an apostrophe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_(symbol) Feel free to make use of itif you'd like. But don't feel like you have to. It's not overly exciting as a symbol, but who knows. Also, we're very interested in an ongoing relationship for additional branding work for the winner. A couple other things to note: Difference between the "prime" symbol and an apostrophe: http://www.webdesignerwall.com/wp-c…tation.gif (again, don't feel obligated to try to use it) For fonts, we don't like "techy" looking fonts as they remind us of the 90's and old school software. Also we want to reflect motion, fluidity, and adaptability. Random over rigid. But no serifs, of course. Finally, it might be also be cool to see to see some military versions. I'm thinking it might be cool if the logo was such that it would natural on the side of a mechanized warrior, a tank, bomb or a fighter airplane. This is not a requirement but it may help narrow down a winner.

It all began with a design brief.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
branch.andrew collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
He has been amazing since the first design but as soon as I better explained my opinions in detail he started delivering in an outstanding fashion. I would definitely sugget to work with him!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
