Because of the weekend and Monday being a public holiday in Germany, we'll start giving feedback on Tuesday, June 11th. So don't be discouraged if you don't hear anything from us until then.
~ Text ~
The name "Rock Deine Bewerbung" can include or exclude spaces, or be written like the domain name (rock-deine-bewerbung.de) including the hyphens. Also, you are free to deviate from the given capitalisation (like it would be written in a German sentence) and write the words in upper- or lower-case.
~ Associations ~
"etw rocken" ("to rock something") is a German colloquial term for doing something successfully. But still has the picture of rock music associated with it. So we're thinking of adding the typical hand sign to the logo (meaning ring and little finger in the air while the others are folded). Just google "rock hand sign" for examples.
The association shouldn't be too strong though - we don't want unreadable "Metal fonts" and would still prefer a modern and clean feel to it.
It is however not mandatory to include the sign. As an alternative, we uploaded an old icon for a previous version of the course. (Please, ignore the font of the name! And feel free to use some other color.) Something along those lines with a stronger connection to applications could work as well.
Keep in mind, these are only suggestions, if you come up with your own idea and think it's creative and fits the brand - go for it!
~ Type of Logo ~
We are looking for a Wordmark logo with a matching icon.
The icon should be easily understood with some connection to the brand instead of being completely abstract. If you can't come up with a good one we'd rather you don't use one at all.
If you do a wordmark logo: Please still do something original, that is better than what can come out of a text processing software.
The logo should also work in monochrome. Please provide such a variant.
~ Fonts ~
The font chosen should be:
- easily readable
- preferably sans serif
- match the brand
If you use a “normal” font, please use Google fonts or other free fonts.
~ Format ~
We need a vector graphic in orignal Adobe Photoshop (PSD) or Adobe Illustrator (AI). Exports from other programs (like e.g. Corel Draw) that only produce binary data that is embedded in some PSD/AI is not accepted!
