What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a start-up in the city of brotherly love (Philadelphia, PA USA) designing circadian-friendly, automated light pods that promote healthier sleep. We are creating small night lights that are battery-powered and get brighter gradually as you approach them. Most importantly, the light they emit is soft white and scientifically selected to minimize disruption to our natural melatonin levels and our wake-sleep rhythm, also known as our circadian rhythm. Our mission is to have a positive health effect on sleep hygiene in a society where blue-rich night time light pollution is everywhere (fluorescent lights, LEDs, phones, TVs, etc.). We aim to provide our circalights to populations that often need localized light multiple times per night, such as older men with frequent night-time awakenings or new parents with very young infants. We also aim to place our devices in environments with necessary yet frequent light disruptions involving populations that are most vulnerable to dysregulation, such as elderly in nursing homes and hospital patients.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We really like the "rainforest alliance certified" tag (I attached an example) and it motivated us to create a "circadian-friendly" alliance sort of stamp. It essentially classifies us, in a fun way, as sleep-hygiene healthy and not only endorses a scientific background, but it also indicates to other lighting companies- this is something we could be a part of, and this circadian-friendly could become a catch-all phrase for sleep-friendly lighting with good substance. We sketched out an example, and are very interested in keeping a very similar format to the "rainforest alliance certified" tag as it will hopefully trigger subconscious recognition and familiarity in people familiar with the rainforest alliance, bringing along all those good vibes and confidence. Instead of a frog, we decided to go with a firefly with a glowing bottom, as we think it is appropriate as a symbol for our "natural" lighting that is not disruptive to our natural biology, and it evokes calm, peaceful/happy emotions. We would love to see different variations of this theme, with the firefly and rainforest alliance stamp 'look,' but feel free to go as symbolic or as detailed as you think looks nice. We want to hand this out in sticker form to people on the street and at expos and events and get them interested! I also attached our company logo, in case maybe there's some creative way that it inspires you to make a connection.
note-my friend who helped me make the sketch mispelled circadian. Please ensure to spell it correctly: Circadian Friendly :) Thank you!

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 sticker.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
hellocE 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!
The goal was to create a sticker for Troopster. We send care packages to troops deployed overseas. Heck was the first design, very professional presentations, always quick to make changes and was very intuitive to a design that portrayed Troopster. I'd recommend Heck for anyone looking for a great designer and I hope we get a chance to work more with Heck in the future.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
