This was an excellent experience. We received 140 different logo submissions, which was a great surprise. There were a lot of very creative designs to choose from. The designers were very professional and receptive to our ideas and feedback. I highly recommend DesignContest.com and would certainly use it again!
We are looking for a new logo to provide a clean, elegant, sophisticated look. Upstate New York is a location, but we feel it is also a lifestyle. We want to blend our business of fine wine and spirits with the lifestyle of our clientele. Our store is located just minutes from Albany, NY - the Capitol of the state. You can head north to the famed Adirondack Mountains, home of 689 lakes and ponds, including Saran ac Lake and Lake George. The Green Mountains and The Berkshires are the ranges to the East, in Vermont and Massachusetts. Just south, lie the Catskill Mountains. As one can guess, the outdoors plays a big part in the life of 'Upstaters'. Think hiking, camping , fishing, hunting, canoeing, skiing, snowshoeing, and just about any other outdoor activity, but most important- relaxing. For those that don't live here, Upstate NY is a vacation destination, an escape- a place to relax. One slogan that we really like is: "Get in an Upstate of Mind"
