She interpreted really well what I needed for this project.
Virtuoso" tapped into a style that was perfect for my brand and quickly responded to requests for tweaks to the designs. Highly recommended.
Love the design and how great designer was to work with!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We build handmade custom inflatable raft and cataraft frames and accessories. Our target audience is anyone that loves the outdoors and especially rivers. We've been doing it for over 45 years and are the oldest manufacture in the world. We want our branding to scream overwhelming quality and innovation. There are other frame companies out there but we're the only ones that do anything unique. http://www.recretec.com
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
We're not married to any color, we can rebrand everything if we find a logo we love. I guess ideally if the design is strong enough, less color is better. Its also nice to make it so color is flexible so we can play with the design easily on apparel items.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We need a logo that tries to show what our company actually does at a glance but is also as simple, recognizable and memorable as possible. We are the oldest manufacture of raft frames in the world so something that looks historical might be nice, but modern enough that its easy to use for branding materials, apparel, etc. Unfortunately we don't know exactly what we want and will just have to love it when we see it, wish we could be more help.
Ok, 99Designs extended the contest 3 days. I figured I'd give a little feedback now that I have a better idea of what the client wants. I'm sorry I didn't know before but he didn't really know hi he saw some of your designs. I think he basically wants a more modern and usable version of what he already has. In my mind if each individual element of the logo is strong enough they could almost be used as a separate design for apparel or other branding on their own. This assumes the font/design of the company name (Recretec) is strong on its own. The elements the client wants are mountains, trees, river and the company name. Any other ideas you have, feel free to give it a try, like adding a rafting element for example. Colors DON'T matter. We would love to be able to take a solid design and change the colors around for different uses so the design is the major part, use whatever colors you like as long as its designed in a way thats flexible. As of now, #20 is the direction the client likes, but I could easily see #6 being a variant of the main design somehow. This NEEDS to scream nature and outdoors. It needs to be very obvious that this is an outdoor company when you look at the logo, further it should be obvious that its a river company.
