The contest was great! There were plenty of designers and unique entries so many of them are able to design according to your specifications and I found that their ideas and creativity even improved my design. I ended up with a logo that was better than the basic idea I had imagined. And when I had questions about things I was able to message someone for a quick response or even chat live... sometimes someone was available outside of business hours, which is unheard of for live chatting. I am more than satisfied with the results and I may even use the designer to help me with business cards in the future, another option DC offers!!!
I am looking for a logo that will show the name bphotographyRVA spelled out just like it is, with all lowercase letters except for RVA which should be CAPS. I want to keep it fairly simple... just a nice looking font or font combination is what I had in mind... if you can come up with a cool, clever photography-related design to sneak in there (maybe on the "b") that could be nice too but I definitely don't want it to be overdone. I would also like to be able to break off the "b" and use it by itself for advertising, so if you could show me how it looks by itself as well as written out that would be great! I have been picturing the logo being in black and white (and red) but if you think another color works well then feel free to go for it, just know I tend to lean towards b&w. You can view the links I posted in the organization description and also, maybe more importantly, check out a sister-startup company that Im working on at http://www.facebook.com/pages/B-and-C-Designs/366592098518 which has a logo as the profile picture that I did. I would post some similar photography logos that I like but I havent seen one close enough so hopefully somebody can envision what I see from what I have here :)
*** USE WHATEVER COLORS YOU WANT NOW.... ID LIKE TO SEE MORE THAN JUST THE RED/BLACK/GRAY OPTIONS THAT I SUGGESTED AT THE BEGINNING. THANKS!
