etcring got their new logo & hosted website by running a design contest:
Create a clean, simple, minimal logo & site for a Restaurant
Check out etcring's Logo & hosted website contest…
Food & Drink
Restaurant. Delivers food and service of an excellent quality, yet maintains character and personality...its a fun place to be. The word contre means "against" as we pride ourselves on breaking out of the norms in food world. The logo needs to be very simple. Very happy for it to be just text but definitely an added bonus if you can find some meaning from an additional element. We let our food and service do the talking, so we do not want an over the top logo. We also make sure that everything we do is for a reason, so don't add an element unless it serves a purpose.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: Light neutrals: Purity, balance and sophistication. Dark neutrals: Formality, mystery, exclusivity and luxury.
I would love to see a design with "Contre" and a desingn with "Contre Eatery" but the "eatery" needs to be far less of a focus I need the focus to be on the typeface. It needs to be clean and simple, but edgy.
Very simple, very clean. Needs to be dominated by a single image (which will eventually be of the restaurant) i more want it to be a landing page at the moment with (coming soon...)
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 & hosted website.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
etcring 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!
She did such a great job for me. I wish I had more for her to do. She puts such time and detail into her work. It is also great that she is based in the US specifically for work hours.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
